A New Year, A New Start

I just cannot resist a new start. I saw this design being stitched in blogland and fell in love with it. Here is my progress so far.

I am stitching this sampler over 2 on 40ct Newcastle linen using Valdani threads as charted. So far, I am enjoying stitching on 40ct.

Here are my stitching resolutions for this year:

1) to complete my three big wips started last year, namely, Christmas Quaker, Beatrix and LK monthly blocks

2) to stitch LHN monthly ornaments,

3) to be timely on Joei's Her Flower Garden SAL, which started in Dec 2009

Joei's SAL consists of six designs, one each month starting from December 2009. I have chosen to stitch the designs individually instead of a sampler. They will be finished later into stitching accessories. Here is a picture of my first instalment - Rose.

Please visit Joei's blog to see the same design stitched on different fabrics. They are all beautifully stitched.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love and appreciate all the comments in 2009. Looking forward to more visitors in 2010.

Hope everyone had a Happy New Year and all the best in 2010!
