Gentle Friends, well, we have arrived at 2013, and stretched out before us is a brand new year. Although last was a less than stellar year for me, I am hoping that 2013 will be better.
At least on the stitching front things are good. With two great SAL's out there - Santa's Village from CCN and the new "Little Sheep Virtue's" from LHN. The first sheep "Hope" is super cute and I am sure that the rest of the flock will be also!!
On my own stitching front, I did not finish the grass on ATS, and I'm still stitching "Green Apple." I am sure it will wrap up in the next week or so, so it will have to be a first finish for this year.
I did get my New Year piece going on January 1st, actually I worked on it all day. I just couldn't get it to come out even and there was lots of frogs and restitching!! Here's a snap of the start...
I am stitching "Autumn" on a piece of 36ct Light Vintage Sand from LL. I am using the recommended NPI silks, as I did on the two previous HRH pieces I stitched. I think, or hope that I can get this finished up be the end of the year and have Christmas at HRH as next years New Year Start. I don't know why I was having so much trouble with this simple single stitched line, but, for some reason I just couldn't keep my count..... it couldn't have been the "Downton Abbey" Marathon going on with my BluRay player?????
Yes, that is the quiet thing we did all weekend - watched the 1st and 2nd Seasons of DA - and now Rico is hooked!!! We can't wait for the 3rd Season to start up this Sunday!! And, we cant wait for the sparks to fly with Mrs. Levinson (Shirley McClain) coming over for Lady Mary's wedding.....
There will sparks a plenty between the two grandmothers!!!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!
