Daffodil Sampler and Acorn Hill Updates

Apologies for the lack of posts and comments from me lately. I've been in somewhat of a blogging slump which I'm finding difficult to get myself out of. I have been stitching though and here are two progress pictures, firstly of PS Daffodils Sampler.


Secondly, this is how Acorn Hill is progressing.



I'm now stitching a Christmas ornament in this weeks challenge on the Let's Stitch blog. I was lucky enough to win a copy of this years JCS Ornament issue in a draw that Carol had recently, and I'm stitching Prairie Schooler's Snowy Night ornament from it. I won't be able to finish it this week though, as I need to get some more thread for it and won't be able to do that until the weekend. I've also been naughty and ordered Prairie Schooler's Santa's and Snowmen ornaments chart from Down Sunshine Lane today, as I've got the ornament bug and these are just gorgeous.

Many thanks, as usual, to everyone for reading and commenting on my blog despite me going AWOL.
