Many thanks for all your lovely comments on my IHSW post - they are greatly appreciated.
I gave the cushion yesterday, and you were all right! She absolutely loved it - big sigh of relief.
I worked on Monday night for about 6 hours on the Geisha, but you wouldn't know it, filling in the gaps is very time consuming - so much so that I think I will have to aim to finish it for my mums 60th on March 7th - which is much more doable. It is one of the problems when you have been working on a project for so long, I must have started it about 10 years ago! Good intentions and all that :) But many of those years I didn't stitch a thing. I think she would be great stitching from scratch - if anyone plans to - I chose her out of all the Geishas as she has so much colour, and I didn't want to get bored. The colours are much brighter than the photographs show them to be.
I am now finishing off a couple of ornaments that needed putting together and wondering what the next year will bring. I have joined theme-a-licious and will definitely be taking part in IHSW. It was actually a search for international stitch that landed me on Joyces blog Random Ramblings - and got me into this whole stitchy blog malarkey - so you can blame her! lol :)
I am starting to think that I should have some clear plans of what I will be stitching.....hmmmmm....I am definitely not up for the WIPocalypse as I don't have enough stash for that. I will be stitching a Mirabilia and hopefully at some point start a HAED I have. I think I will wing it and see how I get on - I am sure my WIPs combined with knitting and then I hope to learn to crochet next year - will keep me very busy indeed.
**edit** I am also doing some book reading challenges next year, some hopefully will be audio so I can stitch and some graphic novels too! All the info is on my other blog off the island.
So without further ado...I would like to wish all visitors a very merry christmas and a happy new year! I didnt want to infringe copyright, so I tried to draw a xmas pic on paint - yes, it does look like a 5 year old has done it - so lets just pretend it was my invisible child!
and a happy new year!
