Change of Plans

This is L*K 12 Blessings of Christmas which I finished in January of this year. I really enjoyed stitching this. I am going to wash and iron it and then take it to the framers.

I have changed my christmas stitching plans. I am not going to stitch the patchwork name. I have other presents for the receipent and not for the other people I have something planned for so as time is getting on this is the decision I have made.

I am going to carry on with Orlando Bloom and then L*K Whatever and then the birth sampler for Callum which will be for his 1st christmas. I also want to stitch some christmas cards and I have the first christmas ornament to do for Callum also.

I think this will keep me going until christmas. I have also decided next year I am going to stitch for MEEEEEEEE other than birthday cards. I have so much I would like to get done for myself and most of which I know where they would go in the house. I know this sounds selfish but I only have one thing on my wall that I have stitched.

I have a couple of days off work now to tidy the garden. Whatever the weather, enjoy your stitching.

I love the Blessings, i stitched this and made it into a wall hanging and donated it to our local hospice. It's their focal piece for the prayer room at Christmas.

I think we all need to be a little selfish sometimes and stitch just for us, whatever you stitch, be happy!

Nice to read some one else is going to stitch for themselves just like me as I have dropped out of some of my exchanges, I just never did my own stuff until I was desoerate to do a bit for an end of the month 'show'!! I love that big Blessings and it would look super framed.

I do like this piece - maybe I'll get to stitch mine one day! LOL Lovely work. :0)
Not selfish at all - you need some of your own pieces to display on your walls. :0)
