I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

TUSAL & Stitching Update

TUSAL

A new year, a new moon and a whole lot of new ORT's to collect!

ORT's December 2015 / January 2016
The picture shows all the ORT's from the last TUSAL pic to the other day in the small tin... the big tin is all of my 2015 ORT's.   I managed to collect quite a few last year... let's see what happens in 2016!

Stitching Update:

As I mentioned in my 2016 stitch goals post I am again doing the January challenges and a couple of other SAL's this year.  Below are the pictures from the last 14 days of stitching starts.















As you will probably notice most of these are little starts from my collection of magazine freebies... which means I should have lots of finishes this year!

Before I go, I must apologise as I haven't been around blog visiting for ages - I just don't seem to find the time at the moment but I am working on a plan to organise my spare time (what spare time!) so that I can fit in blog reading again......

Thank you to everyone that visits my blog and thank you for all the lovely comments everyone leaves.... I noticed that a lot of you liked my mention of Fantales from the "F" post so I think it might be giveaway time soon with the prize being "Fantales"! :o)

Be back soon with start #15 and more info on the previous starts as they become finishes....


Til next time, happy stitching

Oh you have all sorts of sweet stitching going on don't you?! That first little bunny is very, very cute!

Some lovely new starts Noni. It seems a lot of stitchers are choosing more manageable starts this year, hoping for finishes!

lots of pretty stitching in a single post! Great progress, I'm sure your 2016 orts container will be full in no time. I love the owl, yet every start is adorable. Have fun:)

You've chosen some very sensible starts this year Noni, and like you said, that should mean lots of finishes! I'll keep my eye open for lots of Happy dances! :)

Lots of lovely new starts. What a lovely selection you have chosen. I see the Joyful World SAL in there, quite a few bloggers have that on their list this month.

Great choices - I did the same a couple of years ago when I took part :)

Brigitte said...

All your stats are so lovely, and when they are finished they are all so perfect for cards and little gifts. And it won't take long until you finish them.

Great starts on everything and good idea to stick with small charts!

Kaisievic said...

Lots and lots of pretty new starts, my dear. Yes, sometimes it is hard to keep up with the blogging, isn't it? Sometimes, I feel it is like having another part time job - lol! That's okay, we all come and go at times - just look after yourself and keep stitching, of course!

♥ Nia said...

So many new starts, so many wips!! But I'm sure you will finish them all very soon :D Cute choices!! And a good excuse to put those freebis into good use ;)
