If I’m totally honest, my Sunday Sevens posts have been the only posts that have kept this blog current for over a month. I’ve just had a bit of a blogging break, and I’m not really sure why! I think with all the other things that have been happening with projects & parents, I just haven’t really had the time to sit down and blog that much. This meant that I completely missed my goals post for November and I also didn’t get the chance to review the goals that I had set for October. This post is a bit of a catch up to keep you (& me!) updated with what I’ve actually been doing. And of course, new goals will be set!
In my October post, I spoke about all of the bedding that we had shipped across with all of our stuff. Well, it turns out that all of our bedding is actually shorter lengthwise than the duvet size we buy over here. I altered 2 sets and then realised this! They’ve gone back into storage now and will be brought out again when I the time to properly search for an inexpensive duvet.
Even though it isn’t quite finished yet, I’ve worked loads on the little Westie cross-stitch and I think I only have 2 more colours to stitch now! I did hope to have it completed in time for a local stitching meetup but it just didn’t get done. 😦
Not only have I read A Spot Of Bother recently (which wasn’t as good as I anticipated, but it did make me laugh!), I’ve also read Room and Death Du Jour. I read Room due to the fact that the local indie theatre would be showing the newly released film but after I had read the book, the theatre decided to not show it! I’m glad I read the book though as it was a very good read. I was completely hooked and read it over a couple of days. 🙂
I didn’t manage to get 2 garments from my list sewn. I managed half a garment…it still needs to be finished! However, I did manage to make all of my handmade gifts for the #stitchingsanta I’m involved in and they will be blogged about next week. 🙂
My December goals are:
- Finish another colour on my Westie cross-stitch.
2. Complete the vintage dress I have started.
3. Read All The Light We Cannot See in time for my book club meet at the end of December. Then start to read The Kite Runner.
4. Continue to budget money in order to save!
I’m going to leave it there for goals as I know that with Christmas and my parents visiting, I may not have too much free time. I’ll be back in January to let you know how I got on with them!

Great goals, good for you.
Cross stitch is coming on beautifully 🙂
Thank you! I’m really wanting to get it finished now 🙂
That is a wonderful cross stitch! I can’t wait to see the dress 😀
Thank you! I’m looking forward to get both finished. 🙂
Your Sunday Sevens has kept me blogging, too, during a rather complicated patch. So, thank you! 🙂 Love seeing the westie come along, looking forward to your StitchinSanta post.
Your cross stitch is adorable, it looks great!
I’ve been trying to set some goals of my own, and that got me wondering how you were doing on yours. Sounds like lots of good progress has been made–love the cross stitch! I hope December is a fun and productive month for you!
Thank you 🙂 One of my New Year goals will be to blog my goal posts consistently and on time! Hope you are doing well with your goals!
Without Sunday Sevens I would not have kept to my goal of blogging twice a week, so thank you!
I’m hoping for twice a week next year…hopefully anyway! Thank you for keeping up with Sunday Sevens 🙂
Sometimes life just gets in the way… You’re making good progress with the cross stitch though 🙂
Thank you! Yes, life gets in the way too easily sometimes 🙂
the cross stitch is looking fab, though on first glance and before reading anything I did think it was finished. 🙂
I also think it looks finished but there still seems to be quite a bit to do Hopefully I’ll get it done soon 🙂
