2011 was a very, very good stitching year for me.
I participated in the Crazy January Challenge and finished all 15 projects!
I joined a Make & Take class at my LQS and added several mini-projects.
I also finished some large projects-
City Stitcher's Adam & Eve-
Mary Hannah Gipson-
With Thy Needle & Thread Mystery Sampler-
Blackbird Designs Mystery Sampler-
Heartstring Samplery Permit Me Not to Stray-
Jardin Prive Sampler Aux Bouquets-
Debbie Stiehler's Timeless Tomato-
Whew! Looking back makes me tired!
There was a total of 62 finished projects in 2011! A new record for me!! Of course, not all are "finish-finished"
And I won't even try to beat this record in 2012. Not with a new grandbaby coming next month and living right across the driveway from me. Rocking the new little one is more important than stitching :)
But I have started 2012 with a bang-
CJC Day #1-Goode Huswife June Morning
24 ct Congress cloth
Called for DMC threads
Pretty pathetic start but I worked all day yesterday
CJC Day#2-Tree of Life Samplings Penny America
36 ct Lakeside Linen Maple Sugar
Combo of called for threads-WDW and DMC
You might recall that I actually stitched the gold threads early in 2011 and got distracted by something else and never found my way back to this one. This one is "practically" new :)
Becky is hosting a 2012 BAP Challenge and I joined in just to pull this one out and get started. It has been kitted and actually on stretcher bars for a year!
Plum Street Samplers Paradise Lost
36ct Lakeside Linen Vintage Light Exemplar
Vikki Claytons HDF conversion silks
Still a very long way to go!
Thanks for sticking with me thru this very long post! I hope all of you had a wonderful New Years Eve (we spent ours quietly at home with friends and watched the original True Grit)
I am enjoying all the new blog postings but have fallen dreadfully behind. Don't worry-I'll catch up!
