Hi everyone! Time for an update I think although I can’t say that my stitching is back in full gear yet. A first finish for 2011 though, this one…
BBD’s Sweet Heart from the Joyeux Noel book stitched on some 32ct cream that I had in my fabric stash and GA threads. I did substitute a couple of the colours, Chamomile for the stems and leaves and Harvest Basket for the basket. I’m sending this one off to be finished.
Without making any definite New Year resolutions I do want to follow on from last year and stitch more that is already in my stash. Looking back on my 2010 finishes I’ve realised I did quite well in that regard. The majority of my stitching was what I already had (although that didn’t stop me adding to my stash!!). I’m also going to add in fabric and threads and try and work more from what I have. Too often I convince myself that I have to have the suggested fabric only to order it and when it arrives realise that I already had a suitable alternative. That’s what can happen when you are so reliant on online ordering I guess.
Stitching more smalls is also on the agenda for this year plus working more on AaHRH and Christmas ornaments. I’ve finally got round to deciding what ornament to stitch for this month and plan to work on that this weekend. I also want to pick up BOAF’s Happy Hearts Sampler again. This one has been sitting sadly neglected for about a month now.
Happy New Year everyone! May your year be one of health, happiness and lots of stitching enjoyment. As always, thanks for dropping by and thanks to those who take the time to leave a comment! It’s always lovely to hear from you.
Until next time…..
