Ooh love how you have made this card, it's gorgeous Grace :D

I was hoping to finish my Christmas design but I still have a fair bit to do!

I have been away for a few days so thanks for starting this months page off Grace, though if you could maybe edit the title so it fits in with the rest of the SAL pages I'd be grateful.
I have done the stitching for this month's piece but have to press it and make my card up - hopefully over this weekend. Yours is beautiful Grace.

Sorry I have no idea how to edit the post. I was just rushing to post my pieces this month as after 4 months of waiting this 70 year old is having her wisdom tooth extracted on Tuesday at the Hospital. The doctor told me it might need digging out, so I expect I shall be feeling poorly for a wee while afterwards as there are going to be stitches and as I have a plate I will not be able to use it until the stitches come out. I am so fed up with eating macaroni cheese, mince,
yogurts etc. and I had my big birthday in January and received three food related gifts which I have been unable to use up to now, so I have lots to look forward to.
Will probably not be around for a couple of weeks, but I'll catch up after that.
Grace

Hope everything goes ok Grace and it really mightn't be as bad as you are thinking. Hubby has just had all 4 of his wisdom teeth out at the age of 64 and he was only really sore for a couple of days although I have to be careful what I give him to eat until he gets his new teeth.
Anyway here's my May submission - finished stitching last week but didn't get chance to make it up before we went away. It's the first stitching I have ever done on linen - it was easy enough to stitch as there are fractionals in it but a bit tricky to cut it with straight edges, think it would be easier in an aperture card.

Had fun making these using up all my old thread and raiding my button tin.Just need to be washed and made into cards

Lovely stitches as well ladies.Sue think those designs are my next projects thought they would be nice for my craft ladies who are regular church goers.

They are lovely designs but be aware that there are fractional stitches in them. I did the first 2 on aida as I wanted to use up some pale blue I had but they drove me mad - so much easier on the linen.

Happy to be back at last - wisdom tooth removed then I was one of only 5% to develop empty socket so have been out of it for almost two weeks, just the pain of the stitches under my denture now to deal with - it's a breeze compared with the other things that went wrong.
Smashing cards this month and I am reminded to look out my button stash to start adding them to my Christmas card making - looking good from everyone. Grace
