Out With the Old and In With the New!

Tomorrow starts a new year. Time for some changes in my stitching. For the past 3 years, I have had a year long project that I worked on monthly; still been involved in a fair amount of exchanges; and setting monthly goals. Not this year. 2011 is going to be more “freestyle” stitching for myself.

Yesterday I went through my stash to pick out pieces that I really want to get done…quite a pile. I started with a handful and got them all ready to go. I will still stitch pink and red pieces and probably work on Christmas things throughout the year, but am going to really focus on my stash.

I am currently working on Birds of a Feather “Friendship Sampler”. 2 of my stitching buds, Joan and Cathy have done this piece already and it is so beautiful.


I really love the colors. I am almost done with the border.



I am going to keep my New Year’s Day tradition going though. I have always started a new project on this day. Tomorrow I am going start “Clara’s Skating Sampler” by The Sampler Girl. I have had this for quite awhile and figured this was good as time as any for this piece as we are in the middle of yet another winter storm!



Thanks to all my readers and for all the comments throughout the year. I appreciate them.

I finished the friendship sampler in 2009 and just love it (I stitched one girl and then my friend stitched the other for me). Your new start is so pretty and sweet.
Happy New Year!

I like that term "free style stitcher", lol. I'm more like that but to try to put some rules on myself so that stuff will actually get finished.
