Shortest Day SAL

I hope you're all ready for Xmas! The area is getting ready, because this is what was happening today:

It was beautiful to watch, although not so fun to drive in. But now I'm home and don't have to leave the house until Sunday, so I can enjoy it from inside my cozy house. 

Stitching has been happening! I joined Jo's Shortest Day SAL, which was maybe a Facebook only group and managed one small finish for a little friend of DD's:

The bottom photo has a truer colours. This was a little cutie from a WOXS series of Xmas smalls on Chromatic Alchemy 14 ct Nimbus I think. 

I'm also charging along on DD's gift:

and finally remembered to take a photo of the Frosty Friends I was working on:

I'll finish them some day. Maybe I should try and fit them into the Christmas Ornie Blog? The themes this year are:

January - Deck the Halls
February - Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer
March - We Three Kings 
April - White Christmas
May - Hark the Herald Angels Sing
June - Good King Wenceslas
July - God Rest You Merry Gentleman
August - Away in a Manger
September - The Little Drummer Boy
October - Oh Christmas Tree
November - Jolly Old St Nicholas
December - Frosty the Snowman

I can hopefully manage a few and get some more ornaments done so I'm not scrabbling like this year. :) If you'd like to sign up, check out the other themes and info here

I hope you all have a very Merry Xmas and/or Happy Holidays or enjoy your days off! Your comments are always so encouraging and helpful and I really appreciate them.



  1. A sweet finish for your daughter’s friend.
    We will not be seeing snow this Christmas,so I enjoyed you photos:)
    Merry Christmas to you and your family Tiffany.

  2. Congrats on the cute finish Tiffany.


  3. Cute finish ! Great progress on your projects. Enjoy your cozy holidays :)

  4. Great stitching. Love the little doggie with the Santa hat. Too cute! Great WIPs too.

  5. Such a sweet little finish. Your daughter's friend will love the little guy.

  6. I hope you had a lovely Christmas

  7. We've had one day of snow and that was it for December!
    The Shortest Day was just a FB event. The Longest Day is the big one and the Shortest was just a bit of fun, I think Kerry suggested it?

  8. Snow is always so pretty coming down but then it is soo sold and miserable to live with! Cute puppy! Hope you can fit your ornies in next year with the Christmas Ornie SAL.

    Happy New Years!

  9. What a cute doggie! I do look forwards to seeing what ornaments you'll stitch up next year.

  10. Just caught up on your last five months' worth of stitching... and you're doing so well working on UFOs and having the odd finish. I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year and are looking forward to a super-stitchy 2018!


Thanks for any comments!
