Week 2 Progress!

Firstly, I must thank Lisa for very kindly me sending me Lavender and Lace's Spirit of Christmas. Lisa saw that I wanted to stitch this design and sent me her chart as she is not going to stitch it. Thank you so much Lisa, I really appreciate your kindness.

I have spent the week working on Retro Lady again this week. I spent most of Wednesday unpicking what I had stitched Monday and Tuesday as it didn't meet up. So on Wednesday the whole lot came out and I started again so there is not a lot of progress. Despite all of this I am enjoying stitching it.



On Sunday I picked up Lizzie Kate Snowman 10 which I started as an SAL with Sally and Chris on 1 December 2011 and haven't touched it since. I am hoping to finish it this week and will post a picture when I do.

I am also hoping to stitch an ornament a month and have made a small start on January's which I will also show at a later date.

Congratulations to everyone taking part in the 15 Crazy Challenge. I have seen some gorgeous new starts and look forward to seeing your progress on them over the year.

Until next time, happy stitching

Do you have a wishlist? I was curious because your friend found out something you wanted to stitch? Do you have a to-stitch list? :)
