A Pretty Good Start

Stitching wise, the year is off to a good start.
My first finish – Summer Blackout by Heart in Hand.  The fabric is a piece of damask, slippery stuff.  The floss is some blue Threadworx.

Inspired to look for other things in my stash, I did this.


The chart is from a booklet called Fab ABC Chartbook that came with an issue of World of Cross Stitching.  The design is by Rhona Norrie.  The floss was included too.  Curious colors, but I really like the design.


And there’s progress on the camper kit.  I’m easily distracted, of course, or there would probably be more.  I’m a collector too, which is why I caved and bought the fourth kit in the set when I found it on sale. J

Here’s to more progress and finishes in February.

Happy New Year!

I’ve decided on my goals for 2017:

Stitch more.

Blog more.

Keep it simple right.

Christmas was fun. J

Then I got a cold for New Years K

So my new start was put off – for a day. J

This was in my stash.  When I got 2 more in the set for Christmas, J I thought it was time to start.

I have to admit, what I really thought would be a great start was this.

This was a birthday gift.  It will get started sometime this year. Right after I finally decide on a color.  Or colors.  Could you see this in more than one color?  I can, which only adds to my confusion.

No new finishes to show.  But I did put some older pieces to work.

This was the first time I tried this.  I can see it making a return appearance next Christmas.

As for me, I’m off to do some stitching so I can have something to show next time.
