TUSAL

TUSAL time again....and can you believe it, the last one for the year! Goodness, where did this year go? I sound so old when I say that, but it truly feels like the year has flown by. Anyway, enough of this old lady talk and onto the orts for this month...



I kind of cheated with my small jar and added the yarn ends from my crocheting! There are a few cross stitch threads there but not many...never mind, it can only get better. The large container is all the orts for the year - quite a collection, don't you think?

And I have to show you the lovely card/ornament that I received from a friend in Nottingham...


I believe the design is from Cross Stitcher magazine, but I have no idea of the issue number. Isn't it cute? 


And that little button nose finishes him off perfectly! Thanks Janet, I love him.

Until next time...happy stitching!
