This year has flown by and here we are in December. Don't bother asking if I'm ready for Christmas, because I'm not. I suddenly realised today just how close it was and that almost caused a major meltdown. I needed to do something to calm my nerves as I worked out what I have to do to be ready. To help me chill out I decided to prep some more embroidery. There are 12 stitcheries in the Noah's ark pattern, so I had 11 to choose from. John liked the two penguins and so I traced this one out first.
I used my red frixon pen to trace the pattern after I had increased the size to 160%. I decided I needed a second pattern as I have holiday booked over the Christmas period, giving me more time for stitching! For the second piece I chose the tortoises and birds.
My goal for December is to complete both of these pieces of embroidery. i should be able to complete both pieces with time to spare. I am linking this post with Patty from Elm Street Quilts for her One monthly goal Link up party
