Last Update of 2012

Just a quick update to end 2012. I've blogged so little this year, but hopefully 2013 will be different in so many ways.

I have two New Year's Day starts for 2013. The first is Jane Pattison, and I am very excited to start this one. I love the border of boughs and little motifs scattered outside of the border. 


Jane Pattison, 1806, Shakespeare's Peddler
Vintage Light Examplar, 40 Count, Lakeside Linen
Conversion to silks by  Attic Needlework 

My second start will be IAMEK dated 1801. This sampler feels very joyful to me even though the motifs depict serious topics.  It looks like Adam and Even are waving hello instead of getting ready to pull apples off the tree.  I am stitching this as part of Nicola's Scarlet Letter Challenge


IAMEK Dated 1801, Scarlet Letter
Vintage Sand Dune, 40 count, Lakeside Linens
Recommended AVAS threads

I've also been working on Sara Elizabeth Brooke by The Scarlett House, and am about done with the top third of the brick house. I should have a picture of that progress in my next blog post. 

I wish each of you a very happy and blessed New Year!

Gorgeous new projects for the new year. I have ordered Jane P but no floss yet. I was going to try the wool but now am wondering whether I should try the silks!

Have fun and Happy New Year!

Jane P is one I hope to stitch after the SL year so will follow your progress with great interest.

Happy New Year dear friend. I wish the New year brings you lots of happiness and joy. May God shower his abundant blessings upon you all year round.
