This is how far I got with the pears block on fruit bellpull... actually not too much to go to finish this block, at which point I'll have done 1/3 of the bellpull. It's weeks since I've stitched on this.

I started this on Christmas day - it's a birth sampler for one of my best friends niece's. The backstitching around the edges of the bear is horrific, and the chart is really dreadful - the lines are so think I have to guess where some should go. But it's looking fine, no indication some bits were fudged...

I started this little BBD piece during the Olympics. I probably finished it then too... I actually have no idea (and I'd forgotten I'd stitched it until I saw the half done photograph when I was looking through them yesterday. So it's a very late happy dance! It's dark here now, and the camera has darkened the corners of the photo - but you get the general idea!

Finally, here is my final ORT report for 2012... All of the orts I've created since the new year have been gathering on the arm of my sofa! The greys on top are from Tatty Teddy. There are lots of green in here - not surprising given this year I've focussed on Gaelic Banner and Fruit Bellpull!
And all ready for the new orts for 2013...
I started a new piece today (very small), which I want to finish finish before I post a picture, I never seem to finish anything properly. I should have made that a goal. Anyway, backing fabric has been chosen, so it's time to dig out the sewing machine.
