Late TUSAL once again

It's that time once more where us stitchers from across the globe post pictures of rubbish :)
Yes you guessed it's Totally Useless Stitch A Long time

First my stitching orts and I've added ones from Funky Street, Victorian Fan, Daffodils, 3 models and sewing thread from hexies

And my beading orts, all the red is from Santa and his Sleigh the white is from Stan and the 3 Christmas Puddings I've made over the weekend

November progress and December goals

For November I said
Get the next RR stitched when it arrives    It's not here yet
Finish something   No :(
Get the silk ordered for Alchemical   No :(
Work on hexie flowers    Yes
Make a dent in the beaded Christmas gifts/ornaments   I've got a couple of gifts done
Sell some stash  Yes a huge pile found a new home
Post every day for NaBloPoMo    Yes

For December I'd like to
Order the silk for Alchemical
Finish Alchemical
Work on hexie flowers
Get the beaded gifts/ornaments done
Finish something else
Sell some stash

I stitched for 54 hours 36 minutes in November, not to bad a time but it would of been more had I not spent 3 weeks making grime guards.   I had 3 starts and 2 finishes none of which I can share for a while yet as they models and I stitched every day although some days it was only a few stitches :(

Current PHD total = 29 :(

Not quite :(

I didn't quite get to finish him today after all :(  I had a couple of appointments today and they took longer than expected.

He only needs his face and buttons adding and I'll do that in the morning before heading out to go Christmas shopping with Mel and other family members so I can hand him over to her

New beading project

Since finishing Santa a few days ago I've made 2 stars but can't share either of them just yet but I can share the project I started yesterday  (and should finish tomorrow).

This is Stan the Snowman Candlestick Holder from Oak Tree Crafts (well there's a surprise :) ..... not )

I have made him before only this one is for Mel.

He would of been almost finished today had I not missed out a row and had to frog everything from the start of his hat to about 1/3 off the bottom :(

It's been a while since I last managed to get any hexies done but today I sat and made a couple of flowers up

Hopefully I should have more time for them now

New stash

I've been up to Harrogate today to help Kate out on her stand (C265 just in case your off there over the weekend) and I had time to do a little bit of stash enhancement :)

I've been lusting over the Union Jack cushion for a while now but it's always been out of my price range :( today I found it at a price I couldn't turn down.
The Nimble Thimble is selling off their LHN and CCN charts at half price so a couple of those had to come home with me the other chart was a gift off my fella (Oooooo future Gifted Gorgeousness project).

I splashed out on some Tulip beading needles a couple of beading friends have raved about them so I thought I'd give them a go and the pearls are to make Christmas tree's

I also picked up an order of Delica's from Spellbound but forgot to put them in the pic :(
