WIPocalypse Jan 2012

Good afternoon how are you all getting along with your new year goals?  I am getting there slowly - the good thing is I have kept up so far, so I am probably doing better than last year......

Anyway today is the day I show my WIPocalypse progress - there is a link at the top of page which lists all of the projects I am wanting to complete this year.

This is number 16 on the list - French Washer Girl.    I have hardly any time to stitch this week so I have not done nearly as much as I wanted to.  I am going to have to pull my socks up to complete the huge list I have!!!  This is from yesterday where I managed an hour. 

The design is from a french cross stitch magazine called De filen aiguille. I am stitching it in DMC 99 which is a wonderful variegated pink thread.  This is what the completed picture will look like

Thank you so much for looking hopefully next time I will have a lot more to show you!!

If you would like to see what other stitchers have been up to have a look at Measi's blog HERE

New Year New start

Hello it's been a while since I have been on here.  I hope you all have had a happy Christmas and are excited about the new year ahead.

2012 is an exciting year for me I am going to turn 30.  I was nervous about this year but I am fully going to embrace it.  I have alot of plans for this year and here is where I will be sharing them all with you, so expect a few posts a week from now on!!!

Here are some of the projects I am taking part in this year.

1 - WIPocolypse - all of the details Here

2 - A month in numbers - details Here

3 - 366 things that make me laugh - I have a mini book which I have done and have put it by the side of my bed and each night I am going to write something that has made me laugh that day. 

4 - 366 photos/project life - I am taking my own spin on this where I am going to take a photo a day and write bits down each day and then each month I will combine them both to make a double LO.  I will not be doing this all hardcore with journalling tags for each day it will just be snippets.  I will also not be posting my photos daily as I would not put you all through that ;-)

So there it is, it may sound alot (or not for some people) but it's enough for me to be kept busy and hopefully get me scrapping some more!!

Do you have any goals at all this year?
