New Year, New Start, New Finish

In celebration of the New Year, I’m pleased to show off my first finish.

 This little Dalek was created by Dork Stitch during Sprite Patterns December.  A big thank you to her for that and all her other great patterns.

Dork Stitch's patterns will come in handy for the two SAL’s I’ve joined this year.  Stitching Lotus is hosting a Smalls SAL.  That will be fun.  And I decided to join the Stitch from Stash SAL.  With a trip to JoAnns to indulge in their year-end floss sale and a Christmas gift certificate to 123 Stitch from my daughter (Thank You!) I was ready.  I’ve spent the better part of the last few days looking at more things than I’ve been stitching. I’d say organizing but that would be stretching reality.  Here’s a random sampling of some of what I’ve come up with.


Hopefully it’s not just me, but I’m looking at this as an opportunity to start things.  Small, medium, large, it’s time.  I have everything I need to start these two.

This, of course, means that today I started a Dr. Who picture.  The pattern is from Witchy Kitt and features the 9th Doctor, Rose, Jack and the Tardis in a circle.  Either it will drive me crazy or be great fun.  Throw a couple of HAED patterns in the mix and you have a party.  They should all go well with everything I already have started.  J

Happy stitching World


  1. Your dalek is adorable. I love the peacock, beautiful colours and I am going to have to look up the 9th Dr picture. My daughter would love that!

  2. Ooo I like the sound of your new start, I'll have to check that out! To buy next year maybe as I'm also part of the stitch from stash group!

  5. Aw, how cute a dalek can be! An adorable finish! Good luck with all the SALs and challenges, and thanks for joining mine too! Looking forward to your new Doctor Who start.
