Stitches and Stash!

Good evening!

I hope you are all well and had a pleasant weekend, and all the Christmas planning is starting to come together :)

Last weekend rather last minute I decided to Join the iStitch Designs advent stitch along - meaning I get sent a section of the chart each day from December 1st to December 24th.

Here is day one...

Yes...I have fallen behind already, but it's totally ok - I plan on stitching away this coming week and hopefully at the weekend. Some people are doing great at keeping up and the piece is looking lovely already - I can't wait to crack on with it!

Other than that just some new stash in the post this past week - my first two Soda Stitch Patterns.

I picked up The Little Kingdom...

and Petite Palace...

I thought they were so cute!

The Little Kingdom is actually 50% off at the moment on Sew and So as it's apparently a discontinued pattern.

Other than that not much to tell this week - we pick our wedding invites up this coming weekend - eek! :D

Make sure you come back on Friday when it will be my turn to host day 11 of Jo's Advent Blog Hop!

Until then!
