I also joined a birthday and exchange group on Facebook shortly after Christmas called Hearts and Stitches, well one of the members (we are a small group) sent me a stitched card and some skeins of floss which were DMC Flourescent Effects E1010 and E1020 plus DMC Secret Perfume floss in Toffee skein colour 977. This was really speedy as I was not expecting anything before my birthday.
I also received some handmade/stitched cards from Friends Who Count members, a postal/web group that I have been a member of for several years now.
Here are the first two :-
I had a really enjoyable day starting off by a lovely walk on the Common with the dog for once in sunshine and finishing off Christmas food and wine before returning to the health kick.
I spent the afternoon listening to the Top 40 Number 2's that should have been No. 1. The song I voted for from the 100 selection did not make the Top 40 - that was Blondie's Denis and I only chose it as I liked to many of the list but it was the first single I bought. I did however guess that the No.1 in this chart would be Vienna by Ultravox. I think this wins these sorts of lists not just because it is a great track but also because of the injustice of being denied getting to No. 1 by Joe Dolce's Shaddup yer Face.
WIP/UFO Challenge 2013
Back to stitching now I have also joined the Finish your "old & lost" wips 2013 group on Facebook. Well the five I have selected are really UFO's but I suppose we could reclassify them as "lost".
So here are the 5 I am going to attempt to complete over 2013 - ( I am beginning to think I am going to need more hours in the day but what the heck)
1. How Does Your Garden Grow by Papillon Creations
3. English Garden Blackwork by Just a Moment
4. Elizabethan Peonies by Purple Patch Design
5. Winter Seasonal Sampler by The Craft Collection
Hopefully I will complete all these but any progress will be good :-)
A Happy and Healthy 2013 to all my readers, I really appreciate the comments you make and do always try and respond where possible.
