I'm still here!

So lets see what's new. I finished Plum Street Sampler I before Thanksgiving and had planned to finish version II but the black fabric was getting to me so I had to set it aside for a while so here they are as of today.

To relieve my eyes from the black I picked up my Rose Sampler to give it a little attention and it went from
to here
and this was after I found a mistake and had to frog the border back to where it is on the left side.
I got a little frustrated with the frogging so I stitched this little muffin top from the Just Cross Stitch 2013 Special Christmas Issue.

Now I just have to take the time to finish it in my cupcake cup.
I picked up a couple of charts at last night's stitch night
This is as far as I have gotten on the "Sweet Shop" in the LHN Hometown Holiday series
but at least I have all of the current charts and can get caught up before any news ones come out next year. Last I just want to share some other stash enhancements.
As I've stitched I've listened to "Bone to Ashes" and "Devil Bones" by Kathy Reichs, I have one more to go "Cross Bones" before I have to make another library run.  Thank you all for stopping by and please make sure you have an email so I can reply to your comments. I try to reply to everyone.  So away I go to make some more wonderful little xxs.
