It's been 2 months since I blogged and I'm sorry I didn't post link ups for theme-tas-stitch, life has been so hectic due to work, family, college and all the other things that take up time in the run up to Christmas. I hardly stitched during November as I decided to do the School Christmas Fair and did my usual thing of making 100 felties in a month. (+40-odd pairs of earrings). I did make time for Flosstube - I guess that is still a new and shiny thing so still holds my attention, and is easier than blogging believe it or not!
So on to the end of year round up, Here is my 2017 plan I posted in January...
Winter biscornu - Completed 05.02.17
- Celtic Bird - Started 01.03.17 - finished 05.05.17
- Necklace Kit Started 18.03.17 - finished 18.03.17
- Jubilee Heart Started 30.03.17 - finished 07.08.17
So I wanted 17 in 2017 and to only carry 3 wips from the list into 2018 - so that's a win!!!!
I also had an additional 55 starts and finished 46 of them to that brings my total of finishes to 59 for 2017. I couldn't be happier! So what happens to the 10 (including Elizabeth Shepard) they will be carried forward for YEAR OF WIPS...
This is part of the Soulful Stitchers group on Facebook and the challenge is to have at least 15 wips and to finish at least half so until the challenge begins on 18th January I'll be starting a few new projects to get me up to the 15 I need. I'll do a post in January to show the projects I've chosen.
So here are a few pics of my stitching since I last blogged:
I finished Plum Street Samplers - 12 days of Christmas - stitched on 25 count over 1 with DMC 321 & 470 and FFO'd it. It is my absolute favourite finish of the year.
Merry Christmas hoop designed by Emma Congdon and was a cover kit with Cross Stitcher.
Joined the Tiny Christmas SAL by Armada designs.
Started the #fancyouthousesal stitching the Michael Powell design from his 20 to stitch book
and discovered Stone Street Stitchworks and started this awesome free design called Winter Village. I'm stitching it on 38ct? I'm not sure, it came out of a grab bag and is tiny!
I've celebrated my birthday and got some lovely stitchy gifts, including stashquisitions at the NEC and stitchmas haul too!
