End of January already

I cannot believe it is already the end of January, I do not have much stitching to show for it, I have been trying to finish the LHN Monthly Ornaments this is my 2nd one this month, just 2 more to go, I have signed up for the auto shipping for this years LHN ornaments and the 1st one is in the post from the USA so should arrive anytime.
My Birthday was in December I forgot to show what my mother bought me it is one of Sue Hawkins Biscornu's stitched on canvas I also got a pair of scissors to go with it.
I told my Husband that I wanted a glass frog for Christmas and I thought this might be an impossible request, I had seen quite a few on eBay but he will not buy of this site so this left us going into Charity shops, Antique shops and Flee Market and luckily we actually found one in Pickering on the North Yorkshire Moors, I am very pleased with it so I can now display my Scissors, We know a chap who does wood turning to I am going to see If I can get a little dish made for it to stand on.

I know this is a strange picture but I just had to show you my new hammer, there is a great Hardwear shop in York called Barnitts which just has everything in you would every want for the household, when we were wondering about the other week my Hubby saw this hammer and thought it would be ideal for my stitching as I do occasional need to use a hammer so I have my very own one now it fits nicely into one of my stitching bags.
