Hello everyone! I’ve the feeling that 2018 is going to go as quickly as 2017! I can’t believe we’re almost to the middle of January. Usually I find January drags but not this year!
This was my pick for my first start of 2018…..
Plum Street Samplers Hello Winter. I loved this one as soon as Paulette released it and knew it had to make it into my stash. Once again I’m using fabric from my stash. I originally thought this was 32ct but have realised it’s 28ct. It’s Permin/Wichelt’s Dusty Millar, a grey/blue shade and I love how the colours are popping off the fabric. I’m using a mix of the suggested WDW and DMC, just going with what I already had.
I haven’t got back into the routine of #santasundayxs on IG yet. I tracked down and added to my stash, With Thy Needle & Thread’s Noel Sampler. It’s an older chart, from 2013. I’m thinking of splitting the chart into monthly sections so that I’m setting myself monthly goals and will have it completed in time for this Christmas.
However, when I bought PSS Hello Winter I also bought this one….
With Thy Needle & Thread's Jingle All the Way and I’m keen to stitch it too. I’ll have decided by next time I blog.
Now it’s time to say ‘thank you’ to my dear friend Carol over at Stitching Dreams. Some of you will have already seen this ornament finish on her latest blog post. What a gorgeous ornament she stitched for me - LHN’s Seasons Greetings
As ever, Carol’s finishing and her over one stitching on black……well, she’s just the Queen of both those things! Also in the package were these goodies……
a sweet LHN chart, some lovely woollen fabric for finishing and sweet trims. Carol, you already know how much I love everything but thank you again, my friend.
And I think that’s it for this time. Thank you for your lovely comments last time around, I do appreciate each and every one. I know blogging seems to have gone out of fashion a little bit but I’m enjoying getting back to having a more detailed record of my thoughts.
Until next time….
