Goodbye 2011 Hello 2012

End of the year already and it’s flown bye.  It’s been a good year for stitching though, I’ve finished Train of Dreams and then started and finished QS Curl Up With a Good Book and Little Princess.  I’m not sure what 2012 will offer for finishes perhaps Mini Lost In You if I put some effort in.  2012 will mostly be spent concentrating on Whispers and Computer Catastrophes, they’re both too big to be finished by the end of the year.

I haven’t had so much time for stitching the last couple of weeks with being busy with christmas.  The cold is also inteferring with my stitching of Computer Catastrophes I’m on the third page now and just about getting started on stitching the cat.  The window is nearly finished now but there’s still a lot of black to come because of that cat.

Mini Lost In You is being worked in the evenings when it’s too cold to sit in my stitchy corner.  I’m still on the first page of this one, I’m stitching her using the q-snaps so I’m only stitching with one hand which I find much slower than my usual two.  Once christmas things are out of the way I shall try to find room for a stand to hold it on which might speed me up a little.

Finally I’ll finish with a picture of my ort jar, there’s about 18 months of thread ends in this jar and it’s getting a little full now so for the new year I have decided to empty it and begin afresh in the new year.

A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing projects and tips for others to enjoy. I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.
