A trip to the framers

I am feeling much poorer this weekend after Carol collected my framing for me. I really must not leave it so long between visits next time! I cleared a few pieces out from the drawer in the bedroom, took them to be framed and you can see the results for yourself............ I am really pleased with all of them!

The first finish of 2009

Well, Here it is - my first finish of 2009. My dad was here for Christmas and we sat up to watch the New Year fireworks in London. Dad went to bed shortly afterwards and I stayed up until I finished this piece. It was officially finished at 1.30am on Ist January 2009 - my first ever New Years Day finish. It is the top of a bigger sampler from Little House Needleworks, called 'Winter Whites'.

Playing catch-up

I always start the new year with lots of plans for getting better organised and achieving more stitching and this year was no different. I went through the entire process in my head and then, sadly, failed to follow through so far..... In an effort to start to tie up some of the loose (stitching) ends from 2008, here is a photo of the completed mail art which I stitched for Carol's birthday back in September 2008.

I have plans to list my finishes for 2008, current UFOs and plans for stitching during this upcoming year shortly, but we shouldn't get too excited as most of this years UFO's were also last years UFO's. Still I finished a few other pieces over the year, so all is not lost! :-)
