New Year Update

Well it's a new year. Last year was pretty good stitching wise, well, for me. Not that I stitched much for me. I finished 7 projects in all.

1. No Smoking - for my mum
2. Poppy Coaster - one of a set for a friend
3. Coaster - for Deborah for my group coaster exchange
4. Humphrey's Corner 'Lottie & Lulu Dolly' - for ME!
5. Heartstrings - RAK for a friend
6.Stitched block - secret RAK
7. Pincushion - gift for my Secret Stitcher

Nothing huge but I'm hoping to get some larger projects done this year. I also accumulated a LOT of stash especially DMC threads. This year I've decided I need to work on:

1. Completing my DMC threads set
2. Finishing some of my larger projects
3. Supporting my local LNS more
4. Making a floss cupboard.

One of my ideas is to buy one skein of DMC from my LNS each week. Then I am doing two goals at once.

I'm currently working on my Teddy Bear Stocking and my Special Commission. (Cos I got bored of the stocking last night and fancied doing something else!) Here's some pics:

I've done more on my stocking since this pic so I'll have to get a more recent one. The special commission only really needs touching up in places and one or two big areas but that's it. I did the top bird and have nearly done the branches so far. The stocking is getting on my nerves cos it's so bitty but I will keep going with it. If I keep swapping projects I'll never complete anything!
