Big news here! I have finally bought a Qsnap needlework frame, the 11 inch size, after reading about so many stitchers using them. I tried them for the first time on the Bothy Threads Cut Thru' Castle last night and I could see why everyone was raving about them. I love how the frame holds the fabric taut and that I can rest it easily on my body to stitch two-handed.
Despite a busy week with daughter Mary's birthday and sadly a funeral, I have made stitchy progress on some of my cross stitch WIPs especially in the last 48 hours. You can see my progress "LIVE" on the link below if you love videos:

On the Shepherd's Bush Christmas stocking, I have added the wise man's bottle of myrrh (I had to look up how to spell it LOL) he is holding.
And I have completed the border on the Little House Needleworks "Bringing Home the Tree" Christmas ornament. I only have a few details left in the main picture and it will be ready to sew up into an ornie.

Thanks for wandering through my garden (with an umbrella as the weather is showery today)...
