My September start and September's prize....

... oh dear, as I have been a little busy (setting up another new SAL blog plus work has been horrendously busy), it has taken me a little bit of time to decide upon a design to stitch for this month.  I couldn't make up my mind between a tree or presents, so I was happy when I found a design which incorporated both!  (and a Santa and a snowman!)

(Updated: I was asked what my new SAL blog is, it is Kitten Stitching and the Friday Frolics and you can read all about it here - it should be a fun new SAL so come along and Frolic, if you dare!)

"Wee Santa 2015" by Heart in Hand designs... and here is Furio's "hand" holding it out to you...

... not a lot of progress on it this weekend, I am afraid (I did only decide upon it late yesterday afternoon), as I ended up frogging that pink Christmas tree, twice!  Oh, how I hate it when the Frog Prince visits me!

So, hoping to work on it some more during the week,

This design is the prize for September.  To win, all you need to do is post a finish by September 30th.

(And no, Furio does not come as part of the prize - lol!)

Have a great week, everyone, 


  1. So tell us what new SAL have you set up? Curious minds want to know.


  2. Lol such a lovely pattern Kaye xx

  3. That's a lovely design Kaye, sorry to hear that the frogs have visited.

  4. How I hate it when you have to start a design with frogging..! But I'm sure it'll be worth it; it's a lovely design:)

  5. Great choice! I sometimes find that I make more mistakes on small/easy projects than the big ones. It might be that I'm not concentrating as much on the "easy" ones?

  6. I love your choice of design for this month.... and I am making sure my post is up well before the end of the month so that I can be in draw to win this one :o)
    Pink Christmas trees could be all the rage soon!!! :o)
    Hugs xx

  7. Oh Kaye, I had never seen this Wee Santa chart before, such a great choice for this month. I have just started a tree project, too, and it was hard to choose.

  8. That's a great pattern - sorry you had such a rough start.
