A Blaze of Glory.

Well , November certainly wanted to go out in style.
 Just look at the sunset we were privileged to see on Saturday.




And , yes the colours really were that vivid.

Done a bit of stitching. I finished two charity squares off at last .
So pleased with how this one turned out , I love it .
 This one was just waiting for the border . It took me a while to decide what to do. I spent most of Sunday afternoon/evening stitching and Monday morning unpicking and re-stitching the bottom right hand corner as it didn't line up . I am happy with it now it's done though .
And , that's about it .
I am still suffering with this rotten cold. Very fed up with it now .
And , I have still done absolutely nothing for Christmas. Very behind and so not feeling it this year . Must get in the mood, for the kids' sake if nothing else .

Thanks for dropping by ,
Cath .

Hi Cath~So sorry that you aren't feeling well. These colds seem to hand on way to long. You get some rest when you can.

Great finishes and there isn't anything prettier than a sunrise or sunset.
