Do you ever get enthused to start a new project and put a nearly completed project aside ? Do you then promptly forget about it? Well, that's what I did with the my last  Christmas deco.  I am pleased to say that I found it and have now finished it.

I have finished the 1st Christmas stitchery block that I showed you last time and have started the 2nd one.
I was recently perusing Lucy's blog, Attic 24, and discovered her pattern for a crocheted mandala. So what's a girl to do with left over cotton yarn? Yep, I made one! It hasn't been ironed yet to straighten it out and I need to find a hoop for it but hopefully I will locate some hoops at Lincraft or Spotlight before Christmas. These could become addictive and I think I will try a different sized hook next time to make it tighter.
