Where does the time go?

I really can't believe it's been a month since I've updated the blog. What can I say. Only that life is hectic - all in a good way I'm glad to say. DH's new job is keeping him very busy and currently working from home so I don't get much of a chance to get near the computer. I guess the two things have conspired to prevent me from updating this.

Firstly, I would like to say a big and belated thank you to Rachael for my lovely prize. I took part in a draw on her blog and was lucky enough to be one of the winners. She very kindly sent me some hand died fabric and threads all in blue - one of my favourite colours!

I promise to do them all justic Rachael. Thank you.
What else it there to tell you? Well I've done quite a bit of the beading on Celtic Winter. I'm using invisible thread to do this. I love the result of this, however, it is exactly what it says and very difficult to use in artifical light. As I don't get much time for daylight stitching, this is being very slow progress.
I've found myself another bargin though! I was in hobbycraft buying some Christmas presents when I came across the speciality threads pack for Celtic Summer - in the sale. The original price was:-

But this was reduced to:-

And for this price I got:-

That's six packs of Mill Hill Beads, four bobbins of Petite Gold thread and twelve skeins of Needle Paints threads. Ohhhh! I do love a bargin.

There has also been some progress on Tempest, he is now sitting in half a cup! I'll sort a picture another day. And I've been stitching on HDYGG. I've now on part 11 and I've chosen and started some of the beads. So things are happening slowly.

Now, I have every intention of posting again before Christmas - but they way things are, who knows. So I know it's early, but just in case - Merry Christmas everybody, hope you all have a good one!
