Happy 2014 and an update on ornament stitching

Hello everyone on the threshold of an old finishing year and the start of a new year full of possibilities ...



I would like to warmly thank each and everyone that left a comment for my birthday last week. Although I didn't find the time to respond to everyone, they were highly appreciated!

In the meanwhile I've finished two other houses of the Christmas Village and I'm still waiting for the last three months \ charts to be delivered on my doorstep.



Wishing you all a lovely, happy, prosperous and creative 2014.

P.S.: I'll post a stash busting report soon (the things I've bought with my birthday money :-) !

Happy Birthday to me!

Today is my 39th birthday! I never figured out whether mom did this on purpose or not ... just before Christmas (my birthday is never celebrated big time)! :-)


I've received some money and a book coupon so I guess I'll do some stash enhancing ... cross stich, quilting or knitting ... what will it be?

I'll keep you posted!

Progress report

It's December and for the moment it seems like I'm turning in rounds like a cat following it's tail. I'm into stitching Christmas designs and yet I know they won't be finished before the ending of the year. With each season - Spring/Easter, Summer and Halloween - this is a repeating thing!

Let's take the Santa's Village ... I'm still waiting for parts 10 to 12 to arrive and I will be finishing part 8 shortly. Am I happy with it? No, but I'll have to live with that!

Enough venting! To stay a little bit in the Christmas stitching spirit I've found some great Gingerbread cottages offered on this really nice - German - site where you can also find quite some other freebies as well. I like them all but favourites are the middle two in the top row and the left and middle house on the last row. In order to obtain the chart, you'll have to send a mail to the owner or leave a comment .

Stickeule Weihnachts-Knusperhäuschen

I also plan on doing her Halloween sign (next year) :-)


In the meantime I've also subscribed to the Christmas SAL from Sara Guermani (up to part 9 out of 12) and I received the Renato Parolin charts I talked about in my previous post :-).
 
Plans ... and not enough time to execute them! :-(
 
Have a nice day!
