Saturday SAL, Sales and Giveaways!

It's coming up to the Holiday season and I love Christmas.  It's funny, I never used to be that fond of it once I got past around the age of 8, but for the last 10 years or so it's become my favourite time of year, I love shopping for gifts, the bright lights, the Christmas Markets, the dark nights and the songs.  I have a number of overseas friends and a Secret Santa to shop for, which means that I have to have a number of gifts ready to posted by the beginning of December, although it may seem like ages away, it really comes up so quickly!

I'm loving stitching on the Candy Cane Christmas design and although I didn't get a lot stitched, it really was enjoyable!

I had planned to stitch a bit of colour rather than more red, but it just seemed right to carry on with those colours for now!

Love Thy Thread have got a sale on at present, a whopping 40% off!  Go on, have a look....I dare you!

Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is running her annual 25 days of Christmas event, please drop by and have a look, you never know, you might even be lucky enough to win!

To finish off, the photo I took last time of Pyramid 4 was terrible, the colours looked really washed out, well I've taken a slightly better one that shows the vibrant bright colours!

Also, just a reminder.....if you haven't entered my blogversary giveaway please do so!  For all the details click here!


  1. Hello

    Just found your blog.
    Your stitching is lovely.
    Best wishes x

  2. Nice progress on CCC this week Miamina. I didn't work on mine. I was working on Turtle Trot pieces. The pyramid is lovely.
    Did you use color 321 or 666 for the inside of the letters? I changed mine to 666 so it would show up more.


  3. Your Christmas piece is coming along really well. Pyramid looks great!!

  4. I agree with you about the atmosphere of Christmas. I love shopping for little gifts with Christmas lights twinkling and songs playing. Your stitching is looking lovely too. Marchetti designs are always so colourful and Candy Cane Christmas is coming along well. :)

  5. Your CCC project is coming along ever so nicely!! Love the pyramid design, it's absolutely stunning :) Enjoy your seasonal shopping!

  6. Beautiful stitching! The pyramid looks amazing :D

  7. CCC is looking great! I was working on magnets this weekend, so I didn't get any work done on mine.

  8. Love the colours of Pyramid. You're going really well on this one. I'm glad you fell back in love with Christmas - it is magical as I find that people are a little nicer to each other too...and yep I love all the lights - oooh shiny bling
