Stitching in 2013

It’s Autumn in Australia and I’m so looking forward to the cooler weather it promises. Statisticians have confirmed that it’s been the hottest summer on record. It’s a long weekend in Perth (Bank Holiday) and March already (how did that happen?!) so it’s time to update this blog and journal my stitching plans and progress for 2013.  The grand plan is to select four to six design at a time and stitch them on a rotation system of two weeks max per design. Hopefully, this plan will help me maintain focus, which was an issue in 2012.  Simple enough? Let’s see how I go.

Here’s progress on the first four designs I’ve chosen to work on:

Project 1: Birds in the Bower, The Goode Huswife

Project 2: Three Things, Moira Blackburn

Project 3: Butterfly Garden, Drawn Thread

Project 4: Sampler 1663, Permin of Copenhagen

Project 5: A Red Cottage, Plum Street Samplers

    Lovely choices Pokua. My favourites are probably the first two, and I also love the Plum Street design.
    When the weather cools down we should catch up again.

    That’s a lovely selection to be stitching and I’m positively drooling over the colours of those threads.
    I may need to add some of those to my wishlist. Definitely Red Cottage. I may go and look for that one now…
