Happy New Year everyone, hope everyone gets plenty of stitchy time. I think 2007 was a year when I stitched more than ever before, and this time I kept a diary of how much time I spent stitching and on what. I can't believe I stitched 43 things, although I haven't blogged about everyone, and I haven't uploaded pictures for all of them. I think I must do better on that front this year. There are also plenty of things that need making up, so I'm going to try harder with that too.
This month I have to get my SBEBB Valentines exchange finished and in the post. This will be the last SBEBB exchange, as the sadly the board is closing. All the best Becky.
I also have my Quaker RR to start.
I've joined a monthly challenge, and will be stitching Elizas Pyn Pillow. The challenge is to make it up into anything you like, and then we all post our finishes at the end of the month.
And then my new start for this year is:
I've joined the group at Just A Thought and we will be stitching this over 6 months. Here's my first progress pic. I started on New Years Eve, and this was taken on New Years Day, I've done a lot more since then. First I chose my colours to match my lining fabric, but then decided the colour I'd chosen for the birds and animals didn't show on my fabric, so I've now gone for a blue colour.
And the good news is that Mylene received my Stitched Gift Christmas ornament I sent her. And the bad news is that my Christmas Tuffet hasn't arrived, but I've not given up hope on that yet. It is absolutely stunning, as I've seen a photo, and I'll post it on here soon. It was designed and stitched by Judy Odell, and it's wow, so please everyone cross your fingers for me.
