2011 in stitches

Time to bid farewell to another year, and prepare for the new.  2011 was a very good stitching year for me, although not so great on the employment front.  The two may be related.  🙂

So here’s what I managed to complete this year; considering my initial plans were simply the 4 Seasonal Fairies from Joan Elliott, and maybe a present for my mother, I did pretty darn good.


Tentative 2012 plans:

I have joined two Round Robins, one for Mirabilia, and one for Joan Elliott.  In addition to those, I had previously started a RR type design on my own that I plan to finish, featuring Mirabilia faries.  My first Large project will be South Seas Mermaid, and I also have plans to eventually stitch the collection of 25 (so far) Couture Pixies from Nora Corbett.  We’ll see how many I can finish this year.  It will definitely be the year of Nora!  But Joan Elliott is also coming out with a new Garden Fairy series, and I may get sidetracked by those.  Who knows?  I would love to get a Passione Ricamo design stitched, but they are just so much larger than the others.  I may pick one and just work on it a little every month.

Hope everyone else has as productive a stitching year as I did, and even if you didn’t, as long as you enjoyed every moment of stitching time you did get in, it was a year well worth it.  See you in 2012!

    You’ve had a very successful stitching year and your fabric choices are great.

    Wow, that is an invisible amount of stitching, and all so beautifully done. So impressive.

      Thanks! It’s amazing how much pattern and fabric choice affect my enjoyment of stitching. 2011 was the first year I’ve stitched in quite a while, and it was so wonderful for me to find all the fantasy designs, and lovely fabrics to work on.
