Plenty of mids

How are we mid way through November already?!?! These are my November new-starts, and they've got a good portion done to them.

It's always fun to see what other stitcher's have done each month over at Stitching Lotus's Smalls SAL.

I finished these 2 mittens.

I started on 2 more.....

Finished this little Noël. There is a heart s…
