You can see a list of what I'd like to stitch this year by clicking on the 2015 WIPocalypse which you see at the top of my blog. The link will take you to the list. I've shortened it a little from last year because I didn't complete all the projects that I originally hoped to. I've found over the years that I'm what I term a mood stitcher. My moods change throughout the year and I just stitch whatever my mood dictates. If you want to join us, follow the link here and sign up! It's a fun way to share your stitching with others with no pressure of deadlines or competition.
One of the pieces on my list is Plum Street Samplers Promised Lamb. I started this design at the tail end of November. As Christmas approached I had very little time to work on it and I knew that it would be a carry over into the new year. Pretty much anything is that I start at that time of the year unless it's a small.
Here's some pics of my progress at the end of the year and my progress since the start of the new year.
I had hoped to have that house all stitched by now but I got interested in another new start. This is another Christmas design although not too much so.
It's by With Thy Needle and Thread and is called Heaven and Nature Sing.
I'm stitching this on WDW 30 ct Cocoa. I try to stick to the designated floss but quite often the dye lots differ or they don't look right on the material if it is not the same as the designer's. In this case, the proposed colour of the dress, Gentle Art Lexington Green, just sort of faded away into the material so I substituted with WDW Dove which is working out quite well.
I'm enjoying both pieces very much but will be starting on a small soon as I have also continued my participation in the Smalls SAL for 2015. Perhaps a design for the New Year or a Valentine? Time will tell!
The weather here has turned bitterly cold after having received only our second storm of this winter. Yesterday we received 18 cm of snow followed by freezing rain, then rain and finally a small dusting of snow again overnight. Talk about a mix of weather!
My stomach tells me it's time to get supper on the go. How about a pot of chili on this cold winter's night? Sounds about right to me!
