Where, oh where has the month and the year gone? Tomorrow is the 1st of December, which means that Christmas is around the corner with the New Year of 2012 chasing behind and catching up very quickly! Can you believe how quickly 2011 has flown by?
I was thinking the other day about what goals I had set for my stitching for 2011 and whether I had achieved any of them, and then thought about what my stitching goals for 2012 would be. But that is for another post! I may not have achieved all my goals but I have certainly done a lot more stitching this year than I have done for a very long time! So that is an achievement in itself :o)
This post, as it is the last one for November 2011, is a bit of a stitching update.
So what have I been working on over the last month? Besides my snowman for the MS Lovers Blog SAL #2, I recently stitched Margaret Sherry's photographer cat for the birthday of an online friend of mine in the USA - Maribeth. This card was part of the Craftbubble "Crazy for Kitties" birthday exchange. Maribeth often tells me about the trips that she does around her home state of New York and I thought that the photographer cat would be the perfect fellow to stitch for her. Plus he is a ginger cat as is Maribeth's kitty! So two ticks in two boxes... can't go wrong!
The design has been published in one of the cross stitching mags but in this instance I stitched the design from the bumper Margaret Sherry Collection design book. I so love that book - all those great designs in one spot!

I also stitched a Christmas card for the same group's Christmas Exchange. My card is now on it's way to Sue in the UK but I thought it wouldn't hurt to let you see a sneak peek of her card... so here it is.

I am still stitching my ornament which is also for the CB "Crazy for Kitties" group. This should be finished by the weekend, and then I will start on my secret stitching for the MS Lovers Blog Christmas card exchange. I know exactly what I am going to stitch and how I am going to finish the card, but my lips are sealed as we have all been sworn to secrecy until the card arrives at its destination, or at least until Christmas eve when Nia will post pics of those that haven't quite made it to their destination on the MS Lovers Blog for all to see!
So, fellow bloggers, that is it for the last post of November 2011. See you in December when we start the countdown to Christmas and 2012.
Til next time, happy stitching!
