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!
