I only managed one post for November and that makes me sad.
Life got very hectic very quickly. I was constantly handing in assignments (ongoing), working at Cath Kidston through the Christmas rush (ongoing) and trying to get all my Christmas things in order (ongoing!)
Now that I'm a grown up, things take a lot more organising. It was touch and go whether I was going to be able to see my parents at all before Christmas. I'm happy to say I've secured three days off where I can travel to Glastonbury and spend some time with them :)
It feels awful to moan. I really should put things in perspective. I love my blog and everyone involved in this community, but my degree is my life. When it gets to the point where I haven't been able to see Lawrence due to work commitments, you know it's too busy! My deadline date is mid-December so I should hopefully be a bit more active in blog world after that :)

I have been stitching most evenings. If I didn't have my needlework, I think I would have gone mad! Mississippi Riverboat is coming along nicely, as you can see.

I've put in a few stitches in my giant Farmhouse project, but nothing worthy of a photo. I'm thinking I will restart my efforts on that one after Christmas. It takes a bit of time to set up when I want to stitch that piece, but with Riverboat, it's just a case of grab and go.

Lynn, I must offer my sincere apologies. I am terribly late with your parcel. I am in the process of putting it together and my aim is to have it arrive before Christmas. I'm so sorry for the delay.

Also, this is an official call-out for Cindy. Cindy won my Birthday Stitch Surprise for December, but I haven't received an email from her about where to send it. Cindy, if you're out there, please send me a quick email with your address!

I've got an hour now before heading out to work (again!) so I'm going to indulge in blog reading, with a lovely mug of tea by my side :) I bet I will see some lovely Christmas stitching going on.

Best wishes to all,
