Here we are at Christmas again!

Well, this year has certainly flown by, and here we are at Christmas again. I don’t know about you, but I still find I don’t get enough time to do my stitching.

I am going to try a new approach in 2019 – I’m going to make a list at the beginning of January, of the projects I *realistically* think I can get done during the year, and then focus on enjoying the making of those, without worrying about the ENORMOUS stash of projects I’ve yet to start. It’s supposed to be fun, right?!

How about you? Do you have a plan? Or do you just take it as it comes?

However you approach your stitching hobby, I hope you continue to have fun with whatever you make.

Thanks so much for following along with me during 2018 (most of it being the Strawberry Fayre Heart Etui, which is now finished and sitting nestled in my Edwardian china cabinet, along with my other stitched goodies).

I hope you have a great Christmas, and a peaceful New Year.

  1. I have decided I am a stitcher AND a collector of patterns and supplies related to stitching. Occasionally I will raid the collection, but it’s a separate thing from stitching. 😊😉 Kay

      1. I often think about your very large project, I think it is in cross-stitch, and it is done in sections. Do you know the one I mean? It takes a long time to do each section.

      2. Yes…the Heaven and Earth Designs one? I got a bit stuck with that….too little progress, and too many other things calling to me! It’s rolled up in a cupboard at the moment!

      3. It was an interesting project, especially regarding its size. And you did progress, but I remember the hours each bit took to do.

  2. Merry Christmas Janet! I have also made a list; it’s what I want to touch on with only one set of “obligation” pieces. My daughter wanted the Hands-On “Hello There” set, so I’ve stitched Dec/Jan/Feb. They only take a couple of days to stitch, so I’ve got a bit of a buffer now before I have to get March done!

  3. Thank you Janet for everything you’ve done this year. The finished Strawberry Fayre looks truly fabulous. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and a terrific New Year with realistically achieved sewing projects. Sounds the best way! 😀🌲

  4. Janet, you have achieved a major project this year, the Etui. Really beautiful.
    Wishing you a Peaceful Christmas Day and a New Year full of Hope.
