Not Much To Say, But Lots Of Pics

I've been trying to work up the motivation to do a post for over a week now, to no avail. I'm also way behind with blog reading and commenting which is stressing me out, so if I haven't visited and commented on your blog recently please forgive me, I will try to get back up to date soon.
Unfortunately I've been in a real funk since between Xmas and the New Year, and I can't seem to snap out of it. Hubby isn't well and is off work sick and as he's not sleeping properly neither am I, so maybe it's that, or maybe it's the lack of my usual routine, not sure, but I just hope I can feel a little brighter very soon as it's awful feeling so down in the dumps.
Anyway, although I'm not feeling much like talking I thought I'd at least post some pics for you all to have a look at, to prove I've been stitching lol.
First up is a finish from ages back which I forgot to post. Waxing Moon's Spooky Greetings Bellpull. I still need to finish this into a bellpull for Halloween this year, but I think I have time don't you?Next up is Nouveau Encore Designs Personalised Sampler. I finished page 4 on this with just a few hours to spare on New Year's Eve, and will be starting page 5 soon hopefully.
Next is HAED QS Alisha by Hannah Lynn. I finally finished page 2 in December. Will be starting a new page soon.Final pic is of LHN Winter Whites which I've been doing as a SAL with Sally, Chris, Lesleyanne, Hazel and Claire. I know some of the girls have already finished theirs but I'll get there in the end.
And last but by no means least, I was a very lucky girl last month.
Firstly I won a giveaway on Carol's IStitch Blog of this lovely scissor fob. Next, just before Christmas I received a lovely RAK from Claire of HAED's gorgeous Milk & Cookies Stocking chart by Donna Gelsinger. I'd love to start this, but am trying to stick with my wips for now at least lol.Then on Christmas Day I was stunned to open this gorgeous gift from Sally. Sally tells me it's part of the LHN Peace design which was done for Unicef. Don't you just LOVE that pom pom trim? I need to get some very soon. Although I've thanked you all personally, please accept my apologies ladies for not posting my heartfelt thanks and the pics sooner on here.
Til next time, happy stitching....

Lovely progress on your stitching. A gorgeous gift from Sally. I hope you feel better soon - I think New Year does make people a bit down in dumps.

Sorry you've been in the dumps - it's not an uncommon thing after the holidays, is it? Sending cheery thoughts.

Love your Halloween bellpull!

Oh, I love pompom trim! Every time I see it at the store I almost get some. Then, I chicken out because I'd have to figure out how to sew the darn stuff on!

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling yourself and down in a funk. I get that way from time to time and its hard to know what its going to take to snap out of it.

You HAVE been stitching! Everything looks great, and what wonderful gifts you've received!

Sally said...

All of your stitching looks gorgeous Lisa. You're making fantastic progress on everything.

Congratulations on winning Carol's giveaway. What a lovely fob :)

So glad you liked the wee Christmas pressie:)

Hope you are feeling much brighter soon. I was crying before I even got out of bed this morning. Not a good start to a Sunday! {{{hugs}}}
