October WIPocalypse

Here's my WIPocalypse post for this month. I didn't actually think I would get around to any stitching at all this month so these two pictures are pleasantly surprising.
First up I'd my Elisabeth Lillie sampler. Such a sweet design with lovely bright colours just right to brighten up these dull autumn days.


Secondly, here's my little SAL start of the Sampler Girl's Glad Tidings. Really loving how this is working up and I am thinking there is a possibility of getting this finished before Christmas! One can hope!

Speaking of Autumn, we had a wonderful walk round Yorkshire Sculpure park on Saturday. There are some quite bizarre sculptures but the weather was exceptional and autumn was out in all her glory. Here's are a couple of snaps. 
 
 
 
 
Other news is that I have ordered some more yarn for a new blanket I am going to be starting. One can never have too many blankets. It is going ot be Cath Kidston inspired so look out for that soon.
Also want to say a big hello to all my new followers. I have been taking some time to visit your blogs back. Loving the inspiration.
Have a good week everyone.

You are right, Elisabeth Lillie seems to be perfect for November with her lovely colours. And also The Sampler Girl's designs usually have wonderful colours. I will stitch the one you started here, too, it' so pretty.

Your sampler is so pretty, love the colors. Nice pictures too, we're moving into winter here so not much green anymore, but it made me really appreciat your lovely wristies in your earlier post. They looked so warm, hmmm, may need a pair of those myself :)
