My Year in Stitches!

Happy New Year Stunners!!!

Hi stunners!

I hope everyone had a good Chrissy and New Year's. I spent most of my time at work which would have been fine if it weren't so busy and I could have stitched more.

For my stitching goals I endeavour to only stick to my 62 wips that I have kitted up and no new starts outside of this until I bring this number down to at least 50. 

I also pledge to finish 4 wips in 2015

These are: QS Fragile Heart - HAED - Hannah Lynn



QS Theatre of the Absurd  - HAED - Ciro Marchetti


Gold Dimensions Petite - Geisha (sorry I thought I had a wip but it's about 3/4 of the way through)

and 

"L" letter - HAED - Selina Fenech 



Here is my work colleague and stitchy friend Mrs. Dibble at our last craft day  in 2014. Mrs. Dibble and friends were about to be a guinea pig for my first attempt at a Triple Choc Cheesecake! And yes that big glass of wine is mine :D !!

Wip's from Kimlicia SAL

My gorgeous friend Kim decided that since we had 70 plus charts in common it would be cool to pick a chart a month and stitch it together. I picked 6 and Kim picked 6. We started in August and all charts were (of course) new starts.  Here is my progress. Kim's blog can be seen by clicking the link in the left column.

Well that was my Year in Stitches! I really thought I accomplished alot more. Sad face :( But at least it fires up my rocket to achieve more this year.

I've enjoyed seeing everyone's year in stitches for 2014 posts so far. I still have over 100 blog posts to read though. I have only had 1 full day off since the beginning of the year as work has been crazy and being short staffed I've been called in for overtime almost every rest day. But I have 2 more night shifts and on for the first time this year I will have 4 full days off and I plan to spend it stitching. So hopefully by my next post which will be for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL I will have something to show.

That's all from me stunners.
I will be reading all your blog posts in the next 3 days or so and hopefully will catch up with your progress.

Take care everyone and don't forget to embrace life, Love BIG and when it comes to yourself - only your opinion matters.

Big hugs and kisses
