I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and I wish you a happy, healthy, wonderful 2016!
I had a great stitchy year in 2015 and hope to have another great one in 2016. Usually I grab something new to start on New Years, but this year I decided to work on a WIP. And this one may as well be considered a new start as I didn’t have much done on it when I picked it up. It is Ella, The Frog Princess from Mirabilia. Here is Ella when I started her in November, 2013..
Not much of a start, so that is why I say it’s like a new start 😉 Here she is after I put her down last night..
It sure is a lot of yellow. But I am trying to keep her going until I finish her. Or until a wonderful designer releases something that I just have to start right away 😉 The lovely flowers give me a nice break from the yellow when I need it.
I only received one stitchy gift for Christmas this year, but it is one that I have been wanting for quite some time. A dear friend gifted this to me..
An adorable yarn bowl!! And I have used it to make a couple of scarves already 🙂 I love it. And it looks so pretty on the table with yarn inside it.
While this next gift isn’t a stitchy item, I have designated it to be.
It is my stitchy journal made and gifted to me by my VBSF (Very Best Stitchy Friend). She made this amazing journal cover from clay. She is so talented with her new clay hobby and she knows me so well. I just love this little journal and will keep all kinds of stitchy info on projects and materials and such, inside.
And one other gift that isn’t exactly stitchy per say, but stitchy related..
Hubby bought me the Yoshi’s Wooly World game for the Wii U and I am so addicted to it! Everything in Yoshi’s world is knitted, crocheted or sewing related. Even Yoshi 🙂 As you can see in the picture, the trees and walkways all look like they were knitted or crocheted. There are buttons and crochet hooks and needles throughout. The object in each level is to find all the yarn balls to knit a new Yoshi back together. So cute and I love that all the scenery is stitching of some sort.
So that is my update for the beginning of 2016. I have a long list of things I want to accomplish in 2016. Most are stitching or craft related, like finish up WIP’s, scrapbook all of my page kits, stamp more cards, use up my yarn stash, etc., etc, etc. What do you hope to accomplish this year?
