New Year, New Stitches, New Goals.
There is a roll over of 23 WIPs/UFO's that are tagging along into the new year. I have a selection of patterns I would like to start from last years purchases and with this year definitely being my lean year for purchases, it would be a good idea. Last year I declared it was going to be "Frugal '15"....of course that didn't work out so well when I found myself in a good spot financially. Then all the issues we had with our eldest happened & hubby didn't curb any of his spending despite barking at me to do so & we've fallen into the catch-up game. I didn't get any crafting materials gifted to me for Christmas so its a good thing I bought my own. It was a preorder I had done during the fall but didn't expect them to arrive until sometime mid/late January as they were coming from a distributor in France. Excitedly they showed up the week of Xmas.
I'm especially eager to start the Baby Faery; the house brownies flipping pancakes & the Cat...who reminds me of Dragon except with the colouring of Nicodemus from Secret of Nimh.
The first new starts of 2016 will be belated holiday gifts for a few of my customers. 1st up is SCC's: Snow Angel from the Autumn 2015 Collection Magazine. I started it this morning on gold sparkle Charles Craft & am almost finished.
Although I have been snickering (down side to having teen boys w/ simple tracked minds) at the key code selection of the runner band as it repeats this 'boob' over an over 😉
I signed up to participate in a Valentine's Orni exchange; I've settled on a simple perfume set as I don't have any clues as to what the lady receiving is like or likes. I've also signed up to participate in another SAL w/ Lisbei ~ she just sent out the 1st email installment. As well as the monthly Smalls SAL over at Stitching Lotus.
And I've pulled out another 5 patterns to stitch straight off the bat. 4 of which are SCC & the one which is for my daughter is "Alice" by Brooke Nolan.
