This month, I didn’t have so much time to stitch ornaments for Leena and my ornament mini-SAL. I chose to stitch Tournicoton’s Petit Noel design, which is really cute - see the finished model here - but essentially it's 4 ornaments in one. I managed the ‘N’ and the ‘O’, so next month I’ll be stitching the ‘E’ and the ‘L’. Here’s what I managed so far (albeit without beads and charms, which I’ll add when all the letters are stitched):
H and I are off to Ireland this weekend to celebrate two happy family events: his youngest sister’s 21st birthday (the main event), and the return of his brother from four years’ sojourn in Australia. We also hopefully get to meet two new extended family members: H’s brother’s girlfriend (she’s English, but they met in Australia), and our new nephew, Darragh Patrick, born the day after my birthday (I kept telling his mother to push harder, so he could be born on my birthday, but he missed it by just half an hour!). So I’ll definitely have the camera charged and ready to go on Friday.
