Advent Day #13

Well day 13 has dawned, and it's cold but not doing anything nasty...yet! It doesn't look as though I would have to scrape an inch of frost off my car windows if I decided to go anywhere, like I did yesterday. Luckily I'm not planning on going anywhere today, I'm going to concentrate on stitching.

I opened my advent gifts about 10 minutes ago. From Wendy I received a large piece of off white evenweave that I already have plans for, and from Kathy this Cross Stitcher project bag.
Last night I finally picked up my stitching again and I finished a needlecase that I started a couple of weeks ago. I don't have a photo at the minute, I'll probably wait till it's properly made up and then take one. Possibly at the weekend as I do have a few other things that need machining too. I have also started something else - something from the October 2007 JCS magazine. I'm stitching this 1 over 1 which could be interesting. I've done photo charts 1 over 1 before using half cross stitches, but I've never done anything using full x's. Luckily it's just something small and will be made into a pinkeep when it's done. I'm getting a head start on C'mas stitching for 2008. PMSL!

I love getting fabric other people choose as often it's a colour or count I do not usually use
