Happy New Year everyone!
I hope that 2013 is a good one for you all.
I wish you health, wealth and happiness and lots of fabulous stitching!
As 2013 starts I have been thinking back over 2012. We had a real up and down year.... the highs were our trip to Hong Kong and getting Mitzi, but the real low of the year was losing Daisy.
Stitching wise I managed to stitch more than I did the year before... just!! I didn't quite get all my stitching goals completed, but that's ok I just moved them onto the 2013 list....
So what did I manage to stitch in 2012? All of these gorgeous designs... As you will no doubt notice most of the designs that I stitched last year were Margaret Sherry designs or kitty designs!!
In 2012 I managed to stitch 29 designs. I put the final stitches into my MS Santa on New Year's Eve! Most of my stitching in 2012 I made into cards and some I even managed to make up into pillows or ornaments, but some are still waiting to be "finished".
I do have three more finishes to show you... but two haven't as yet arrived at their destinations so I will leave them and my MS Santa for another post.
One final piece of stitching that I was hoping to get finished by the end of 2012 was the last of the Margaret Sherry Cool Cats Summer - but I didn't quite get there. That will be my first goal for 2013. Once I have stitched that one I will then "finish" Winter, Spring and Summer into pillows.
So what are my stitching goals for 2013....
1. Stitch more than I did in 2012
2. Start another Chatelaine (and hopefully finish it!)
3. Finish Bonsai and Buddha - this has been a UFO/WIP for at least 12 months.....
4. Stitch a Halloween design - I have never stitched one and I absolutely love them especially the Lizzie Kate designs
5. Stitch either Christmas cards or ornaments for 2013
No doubt this list will change over the year... like life my To Do Lists are very fluid!!
I will leave you with a couple of photos of our little Mitzi. She is now 6 months old and was recently sterilised... trying to keep her quiet after the operation was not exactly easy... She has recovered really well and is back to normal - getting into puppy mischief!!
