Needleroll SAL and a catch up

Sorry I haven't posted this month's SAL participants sooner, I've been catching up with things around the house, etc , since I was away most of the week but now thats all done I intend to spend the afternoon updating here and checking out a few boards and what everyone has been up too :)

SAL-ing this weekend we only have a small group this time:

Anne - Classic Stitches freebie or Summer Soltice Eventide Designs
Andrea - SB's Snow Fall Roll
Gail -Victorian Floral by the Sweetheart Tree

For my choice I went with another Shepherds Bush roll, St Nicholas Roll. Here's my progress as of Saturday night, only the top Santa row to finish and then add some lace. This has been a cute stitch :)

I returned home to find some lovely mail waiting for me - Block 3 of Leanne's House, my Crescent Colour Monthly Bits from Stitching Bits and Bobs and from the lovely Carol, December's Just Cross Stitch magazine, which we won't see here in NZ for a good few weeks. In this issue I love the JBW Design "Pear" and the set of acessories by Cherised Stitches are gorgeous.

Lamb is very sweet - I love those JBW designs. I was happy to see "Pear" in the December issue you have there. And your ornament from Kath is perfect!
