I feel like the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland - I'm very late. And not only for an important date, but for all sorts of things; maybe even for everything. And if I could even remember half of what I'm late for, I'd probably faint dead away. Why has life suddenly gotten so busy??
But enough panic; I'll put rhetorical questions aside for the moment, and instead tell you that I've finished my Fair and Square squares! I haven't posted them yet as there's still a postal strike here in the UK - yes, again, still - so I want to wait until the backlog has cleared a bit before posting these just in case they get lost. So no photos yet, but imminently. I also finished my return Crazy Exchange gift for Marne, but again waiting for the strike to finish before posting. Postal strikes aren't fun. I really dislike them. Just for the record.

But I do have a photo I can show you of Orlaith's stocking! I finished the bottom third last month, so this month's task is to finish the central motif - Santa! I know I had a little blast earlier about Christmas being in the shops already, but surely Christmas stitching is allowed??? I feel it's a very different thing LOL :)

So here is my progress with the stocking so far: Santa's skate and part of his stripe-y socks. I'm not particularly looking forward to finishing this - my sewing skills are nascent at best, but I'm pinning my hopes on my wonderful mother to help me, despite the fact that she is more than 4,000 miles away...

Happy stitching and thanks for dropping by!

The stocking is looking lovely. Sure hope the postal strike is over soon so you can get the exchanges mailed out, I just finished my F&S one yesterday.

I will just observe that you are using extremely intellectual words and causing me to have to keep my dictionary close at hand. ;->

I'm in northern California with approx. 300 women with RV's. Quite a riot! Will be here until Sunday morning.
