Tag Archives: 2013 Woodland Sampler

On a happier note, my stitching bug seems to have returned in the new place.  So far in 2013 I have finished:

Finished, not ironed.

My Big Toe – Cheaper than Therapy



Imaginating – Meowry Christmice



Cross Eyed Kat – Angle of Love

As well as finishing all of these wonderful WIPs (chosen by you – the readers on that side of the computer) I have also started two pieces.

This is to be my travelling piece for when I visit JulieD for a Stitching afternoon.

Mystery start

Any ideas which project it is?

Finally, I have started a new SAL: 2013 Woodland Sampler by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

This is NOT my usual style of project.  This company promotes themselves as “seriously cute patterns”. However for the first time in years, a pattern and a company has caught Claire’s imagination and she is wanting to stitch again, so I said I would stitch along with her.

This is a monthly mystery sampler and as my last cross stitch purchase before moving, I bought the kit for this piece.  Unfortunately the kit was popular and back ordered so it only arrived this week.

I immediately threw out the fabric (I have a problem with beige) and substituted a light blue.  Mr I Ain’t Dead Yet was here at the time and agreed that the colours looked better on the blue. At this point I’ve just started the little box borders …..

The SAL can be bought here if you are interested in joining us.  We have been teasing Rosanne mercilessly who is convinced she doesn’t need another WIP.  What does need have to do with it I ask you?

In other stitching news, I’ve removed Turple from the list of WIPs.  I’ve had some inspiration of how I want to stitch that one and it involves unstitching and restitching the work I’ve started.

The March Poll looks interesting Cirque des Cercles and Dragon Feathers Afghan are tied in the lead.  Both meaty projects that wont be finished within a month!

Anyway, that’s what I’m up to.  Hmmmm ….. 6:30 pm – so much for cleaning the house today …..

Time for dinner.
