I have two final finishes for 2013 to share with you, I have stitched ornaments for the children, as usual I haven't got the 'finishing' done yet (whoops!) Both ornaments are from the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Edition
A Victorian Christmas Tree copyright Needlecrafts Unlimited Co. 2001
Snow Joe copyright Heart in Hand Needlearts 2000
With these two finishes that takes me to 8 stitching finishes for the year. I was most pleased to finish Juda Hayle in Miniature and to get it off my wip list this year.
Because of this I've had a long hard think about my stitching goals for 2014. I have purposely not set goals since I had the kids but now Christopher is at nursery 3 days a week and will start full time school in September, I'm starting to have much more predictable stitching time so I'm going to set a few. The other thing I am going to do this year is go back to having a rotation. Joining in with Theme-a-licious has been fun for the last few years but now I really want to finish a few of my long term class wips. I have decided to focus on finishing CA Wells Danish Whitework Portfolio (from 2005) and Forget Me Nots in Stitches Anniversary Roses (from 2010)
I am also going to join in with the SAL on The Scarlett Letter's Dorothy Walpole over on the Sampler World Group on Facebook. I have wanted to stitch Dorothy for several years so I decided that now was a good time! These three projects are going to be the core of my rotation and I will also have a couple of small/medium projects from my stash as well.
Congratulations if you've made it this far! I would like to wish you all a great New Year.
