The year is flying by and almost at its end . How worrying is that. Seems as if years slide off the calendar at a great rate of knots. November brings back memories of Portland Fair which took up the length of one of the streets, we thought it absolutely fantastic to be given a complimentary free ticket for a ride, all the pennies we saved during the year would get spent on trying to win a goldfish (which promptly died the next day poor things) or the inevitable china ornament that seemed to be made of a chalky substance which went to the next jumble sale collection that came along. It was always this weekend of the 5th. Then bonfire night included oh what fun.
Oh well times are different and all has changed no more the up and down horses , the strange and wonderful side shows that you could only see if you were not a child, the boxing matches etc which were oh so tantalizing to an inquisitive child not to mention the bearded lady and so on.Yes folks I am that old!!!! Oh the smells too ,of candy floss and hot dogs toffee apples etc, still I am not here to drift into nostalgic memories of my childhood.
This is the weekend I can start thinking of Christmas as it always seemed to follow the fair and bonfire night. So on that note this is my little finish this week .Sally and I decided we would try and get these done on Sundays as a sal, I started mine on Saturday last so got it finished on Sunday.

I have not got a lot to tell you this time and I really must get my stitching fingers working as I have loads to get done. I was going to start, I have got my love to keep me warm ,but it looked really heavy the little I did, so that has been put on hold ,instead I started this and it is stitching up delightfully.
Got a job to put this one down. Martin said why are you stitching a witch Hallowe'en is over, well it is still Autumn ,but it will be done for next year won't it, I said. I would like to stitch the others in this series too.
Last Monday and another Monday is looming is Jane Day with Sally ,this is lovely to stitch ,but I am dreading the mansion that is next,or it seems like a mansion! Anyway here is progress so far
SO that is all folks this time , thankyou for your continuing comments they mean a lot . Take care of yourselves till next time
