Happy New Year

Last year when very fast, the older I get the quicker the years seem to go, reading everyone's blogs there are loads of sals and challenges to join, I would have loved to join stitch from stash but I do not think I could be stricked enough, I have plenty of stash I can use up so that is one of my goals this year to try and stitch some of what I have.
I have plenty of works in progress to complete as well. This will be my 1st the Christmas Advent Sal from iStitch.


I did decide to join the Gifted gorgeousness Sal anything which is stitched from the below list is included which I have plenty.
  • Any chart/kit which was given to you
  • Any chart/kit which you won in a giveaway
  • Any chart/kit which you bought using a voucher given to you/won by you
  • Anything stitched on fabric received in the above ways
  • Anything stitched with floss received in the above ways
  • Anything embellished or finished with items received in the above ways
  • Anything which is intended as a gift or prize for another person
  • Anything else you can somehow shoehorn with word "gift" into!

These are a couple of things I can start with both gifts received for My Birthday.




I like stitching for other people and taking part in exchanges so should have plenty to share.

I see you like Sue Hawkins designs - I've stitched one or two of them over the years. They can be fun to work on.

Two great projects you can start with. Although one is a mystery I love the threads that are used in it.
Have a Happy New Year, too!

Hi Jayne, just popping-in to let you know that we have been partnered in Tracy's swap. Maybe you could email me at some point and let me know what your likes and dislikes might be. Lovely to 'meet' you.
