Happy New Year - I hope you all had a great Holiday Season.
This post will contain what I got done from 8th December (my last blog post) to the end of the year. I will review the first weeks stitching of 2016 and at the end of the post show the stitchy stuff I had for Christmas.
Since my last post in December I finished my December Pin Cushion (design by Sheena Rogers from Cross Stitch Collection magazine)
On the First January which was also my 47th Birthday I started working on both January Pin Cushion and Prairie Schooler Alphabet.
On Sunday the 3rd January 2016 which was also my husbands 50th birthday, I started working on Orangutans by Jayne Netley Mayhew and to which I refer to as Simon. The finished design will look like this
Finally the last bit of stitching I have done since the New Year was my first rotation. Now it was supposed to be Little House Needleworks - Home of a Needleworker Too, but my planned projects for Rotation 1 included 2 largish projects so I decided to move the LHN one to the second project I do in Rotation 1 as this should not take so long. So on the 4th January I started working on Victorian Charm by Sunset/Dimensions. When finished it should look like this
So that's it for my stitching. I have done 37.5hrs in the first week of 2016 so that is £3.75 into my money box. I have had no finishes so no bonus pennies to add this week. I have not bought anything this week. So off to a good start.
Below are some of the stitchy things I got for Christmas
Finally whilst out shopping over the Christmas period I went into my local The Works shop and saw these two boxes for £15 and so because they are quite well made I got them
Future blog posts will be named Week " " - 2016 Update, if they are stitching related and I aim to post every Friday. If any of you are curious about what I am stitching I post daily on Instagram my id on there is loubie69. If my post is non stitching/craft related it will have a named title as opposed to week this or that.
So that is it for the first week of 2016, I don't expect to be as productive as this week every week. This week was more a case of I did so little for a fortnight I needed to stitch and so I have. If I can get about 20 hrs in a week I will be more than happy.
Bye for now
