A Brand New Year

December 30, 2012

I have been thinking over the past few weeks about what the new year will be like and what projects I should focus on. 2012 was a total flop for me for finishing all the new projects I started and the WIP stack is near to toppling over. I guess this year I am making a pledge to myself that I will not start any new projects (except the one SAL I signed up for) until I finish at least 2 WIP’s. Stash acquisition I will try to keep to a minimum (we will see how that goes) and use of things in my stash comes first. I have multiple large bins stuffed with patterns and I really should stitch some of those before I buy new ones. (The new ones are sooooo tempting though.) These are my stitching resolutions for 2013.

I think this will be my most challenging year!!!


It’s been awhile since my last post. Life has been too stressful and busy and I just did not have the time.

This post will have many images, so be patient with me.

I have worked on several RR’s in the last couple months.

Mira RR’s in the last few months:

We are now on the last round of the Mira RR for this year. My Mira RR is already on its way home. I can’t wait to see it and finish my parts of the piece. I still have the flower border, the title and finish my Mira Lady (Elizabeth). I will post when it arrives.

Band Sampler RR’s:

I think we are at least half way through this Band Sampler RR and I am looking forward to stitching on the rest of the Samplers.

It’s time to post my February TUSAL:

Quite a bit of stitching this month. Working on RR’s, WIPocalypse and the Crazy January Challenge.

WIPocalypse February Update

February 7, 2012

I had my first finish for my wipocalypse list. It is Aunt Ina by Indigo Rose.

My next focus project for the WIPocalypse is my own design (a medieval/gothic style) sampler.

Day 14 – I chose to start a project that I am stitching as a gift for my sister. It is called Sister by Gail Bussi from a past issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. It is a colorful and delicate alphabet and it is going to be fun to stitch.
Here it is:

Not a lot of time to post today but here is my Thistle Sampler start. I started with the large thistle corner motif.
