Years End

Well almost.
I hope this post finds you all well and that you have enjoyed a peaceful Christmas.  We have had quiet, family time so far ~ New Year celebrations are ahead of us and we will be spending time with my Sis2 and her DH who from here on in shall be known as McBiL ~ being my brother in law who resides in Scotland.
GB1 has been home from university ~ his final lecture was December 13th, however he was committed to work until 19th when we collected him to bring him home.  With the studying/revision he has needed to do and also working back in his old Costa store we've seen very little of him.  It's still been lovely having him home ~ not sure that GB2 agrees!
I've signed myself up for stitching only from stash during 2014 ~ check out my page link across to the right ~ I've made a start listing the charts/kits that I have in my stash and as you will see there is plenty to keep me going!  I'm sure I can do this, do you fancy giving it a try?
I'm watching The Holiday again while sorting out fabric for my New Year's Day start ~ Home of a Needleworker by LHN.  I already had the thread pulled and stored in the pattern wallet so it seems like an easy option.  I may even make 2 starts as I am planning to stitch a Christmas piece a month ~ with this in mind I have The 12 Days of Christmas Parts I & II  from The Little Stitcher so my 2014 ornaments will be themed.
Being reasonably certain that I won't be posting again this year I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for reading my meagre posting efforts this year ~ I'm hoping that I will be better at updating my blog in 2014.
Here's wishing you a Happy, Healthy & Stitchful New Year.

Stitching only from stash in 2014, hmmm. Does that mean I've got three days to go shopping? ;)
Have a very happy New Year

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family. Look forward to seeing your stitching from stash progress in 2014.

A lot of ladies seem to be stitching from stash Kate next year, I have so much it seems sad that it justs sits in the drawer, I did it this year and only bought a few items so will be carrying on again next year.
Wishing a Happy 2014, I hope its a good one for you!

Mm, think I am going to join you, Kate! Will head over to Mel's blog now!

Maybe we should hold each other accountable on the small matter of regular blog posting, lol!

We can cheer each other one Kate in the Stitch From Stash. I'm hoping I can keep it up. I do have autos to finish but Mel has allowed for that.

Barb and I are stitching one a month of the 12 Days too. I just fell in love with them after seeing Carin stitching them on her blog.

Happy New Year!
