Woodland Sampler - November

Moving backwards a bit from Christmas, I thought it was time to finish my November stitching.  Only one more row remains, so hopefully the next couple of months will see a finished piece!

For the time being I left out some of the single stitch snowflakes, because I wasn't sure of a good way to secure the metallic thread.  In my experience, single stitches aren't very secure and metallic thread does like to unravel!  But regardless of what I decide to do about the flakes, I've still got one more cute critter!

I saw a squirrel!

Christmas Buttons!

These past few weeks have seen more shop hopping than sewing, but today's shops gave me the perfect opportunity to start a collection of "ornaments" for my advent tree!

Yes, that is a dinosaur.  :)
