As usual, I have lots of things I want to do in this New Year.
But before I get into that, I figured out what happened in 2018......We remodeled our house in Texas so I was living in the RV as well as in the yard and everything was packed. It was horribly dusty so I spent alot of time packing, cleaning during the construction and unpacking once it was finished so early 2019 was also a loss for stitching time. Whew, glad to have figured that out thanks to my husband!
Now to 2020:
I am thinking that I want to finish 20 projects and start 20 projects (2020, get it?)
I have plenty of things ready to go so starting 20 things should not be a problem.
As far as finishes, I would like to finish anything that was started prior to 2019 first....some of those projects that are ages old. Like the HAED Books Reading Books; Evergreen Sampler; Chatelaine Knot Garden; the 2017 Mystery SAL by Linen and Threads (expecially since I want to start the 2018 and 2020 SALs)
Then I will work on finishing the 2019 starts and go from there.
2020 seems to be the year of the sampler for me. I have been drawn to several projects that are samplers. My problem is that I don't really like stitching words. Kind of a drawback.
My new starts for 2020 so far in the sampler genre and are;
Bluebird Out My Window by With Thy Needle and Thread
Done on 28 count Chime by Picture this Plus...It is a yellow moddled fabric that is not showing up too well in the photos but it is very "springy". I am using the threads called for except for the bird....the color was "Cadet" but the skein I had was too green so I changed it to "Old Blue Jeans". Am enjoying this and should be finished with it in less than a week.
Mary Oakley 1818 Sampler by Pineberry Lane
I decided to use what I had on hand for this smallish sampler. I am doing it on 36 count Old Mill Linen by R&R. It is an aida evenweave that came in a Stitchy Box last year or the year before. The threads are just random pulls from what I have on hand. The jury is still out on the "white" looking thread, but I am going to leave it. I hope to complete the border this week.
Thanks for visiting. I am determined to keep posting this year. I will be posting all my current projects with updates this week (I hope).
