was my new start in January this
year so it seems kind of appropriate that having talked about that in my first post
of 2012 I’m going to talk about it in my last post of 2012. Having finished it in May it then sat for
Christmas Garden weeks months (!!) before I finally left it in with the framer in October. With everything else going on I sort of forgot
about it (my framer can sometimes take a while) but come December I did begin
to think it was about time it was home and hanging in my house. Just over a week before Christmas I got the
word that it was ready to be picked up and here it is…..
I love that I had this in time for Christmas and I’m thrilled with the job she did.
At the same time as leaving
and is another one that I’m thrilled with.
While I’m not really into the whole making resolutions thing I do like to start a new project in January. As you will know, I love having something to work on each month. Well, I’m not sure whether I’ve bitten off more than I can chew but, this year this is the one that’s going to be my monthly stitching project…..
A Sampler Story by Brenda Keyes. At 24 squares I’m thinking I can manage two squares a month and, with a bit of luck, I will have this one completed in December 2013. I did think of just one square a month but the thought of it taking me two years seemed a lifetime! I’ll see how I get on, if it starts to feel like that’s all I’m working on and I’ve no time for anything else I might need to rethink.
We did have a different Christmas this year but the good news is that a couple of days ago my mum changed hospitals and is now in one where she’ll spend the next few weeks having physiotherapy and help to get back on her feet. My dad is having horrible nerve pain from the shingles but the rash itself has stopped spreading and isn’t looking so nasty. Unfortunately he’s still not allowed to visit my mum.
Thank you for all the lovely comments you left last time about my PS stitchings. In 2013 I’m hoping to stitch some of the BOAF santas and likely there will be some PS ones in the mix as well.
Whatever your plans to see in 2013….enjoy. DH and I will see in the New Year very quietly, hopefully we’ll manage to stay up to midnight! Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2013 with lots of stitching going on!
Until next time……
