I also have 3 items I just sent off for gifts so I can't show them here. Since the last post, I did sneak in the Soweth Sampler. It was a fun stitch.
After 'Soweth', I started the Silk Sampler by Birds of a Feather. Here's the progress.
Another WIP I will take to 2011 with me is Elizabeth Easton, by the Goode Huswife.
I've really enjoyed the pieces I stitched this year. One thing that's been painfully obvious to me as the year wraps up is that I have some physical issues to tackle in 2011. I will let you know how it goes. I am committed to getting better because I want to keep stitching, pain free, for many years to come.
For 2011, I hope to stitch mostly from my stash. I know I will buy new things but I will focus on kitting up existing charts. To that end, I will de-stash and sell some charts and linens so watch this space.
Some projects on my immediate radar are: CHS Garden Glade, BN Lo, How a Rose, PS Boris, SP Sarah Woodham. I hope to stitch more Carriage House Samplings, Goode Huswife, and Prairie Schooler in 2011. I do want to stitch at least one reproduction sampler... One thing I do know, however, is I change my mind all the time, so who knows? ;-) That's half the fun!
Lastly, I want to thank you for another wonderful year playing here in Blogland, all your wonderful support for all the ups and downs, and all your efforts with your blogs and stitching as well. Wishing you Health, Love and Happiness in the New Year! Cheers!
