Happy New Year!

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2012 is good to you.

I have been going to do this post for a few days but have only just got round to taking the pictures.

As promised here is the giveaway I received from Lesli. I am absolutely thrilled with it and hope to stitch it sometime soon. Thank you again Lesli for pulling my name.

Before Christmas I was stitching like a mad women finally got my great nephew's sampler finished. I am so pleased. I was hoping to find a frame and frame it myself but unfortunately I haven't been able to so when I go back to work I will take it to the framers near there and get it done.

I am going to work on some of my larger projects in 2012. I have six wips to finish:-

1. Winter Band Sampler
2. Snowman '10
3. Lanarte Poppy
4. CCN A Bee C Sampler
5. Vervaco Pink Lady with Red Rose
6. L*K Halloween ABCs

I would like to start the following designs at some stage during the year.

1. Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Snowmen
2. Historical Sampler Cupcakes
3. CCN Ice Cream Sundae
4. CCN Pie Menu
5. Vervaco Lilac Flapper
6. Lavender and Lace Spirit of Christmas

I would also like to stitch an ornament a month which will probably be a weekend project but I am not sure so will see how I feel as I am not very keen on finishing them lol.

All of the above, except Lavender & Lace Spirit of Christmas, I have in my stash and as I have jumped on Sally's band wagon I am hoping to stitch only from stash this year and only buy fabric and threads needed for each of the projects I start. My son was looking over my shoulder when I was on facebook and said how lovely the Spirit of Christmas was and I really should stitch something as good as this. So I will buy this for myself later in the year when I have finished my wips.

I have had a new start but will tell you more about that next week, I think this post is long enough as it is.

Again Happy New Year to you all and thank you to those who visit and leave comments I can't tell you how much I appreciate them.

Until next time, happy stitching

Lesleyanne xxx

Enjoy those giveaway goodies, Lesleyanne. Like you, I'm planning on stitching from stash this year. I've set so many lovely charts that I already own aside in favor of "the newer model" so I really want to go back and stitch them :)

Wishing you a most happy new year!

Gabi said...

Wishing you a Happy New Year and looking forward to see you stitching up your goals :)
Lovely give away

Lisa said...

Congratulations on your giveaway win and your recent happy dance.
Love the designs you have planned for 2012, welcome on board the stitch from stash wagon, hopefully I can help you hang on a little longer there....
I have L&L Spirit of Christmas in my stash, have had it for a few years and if I'm honest, as much as I love it I don't think I'll ever get around to stitching it. So I would love to gift it to you if you would like it. Just let me have your snail mail address and I'll get it in the post to you.
