So , 2017 was a bit of a flop stitching wise , I had 32 starts and 29 finishes , 21 of which were squares for Love Quilts . No big finishes and not as many small ones as usual. I fell into a bit of a funk towards the end of the year , mainly due to stress and jury duty ,but thankfully things are improving now .
My Orts for last year :
Books read last year came to a grand total of 133 , quite a bit more than previous years but with not as much stitching , I had to be doing something , right?
Christmas saw a big enhancement to my book stash .
This was started last year , but finished on the 2nd of Jan and is a sign up for Love Quilts.
This one was started 2nd Jan and finished on the 9th , another LQ sign -up. They have both been posted now along with the Green Lantern logo which was originally an a/c square but has since been used for a sign-up.
I love doing my Love Quilts squares but I really do need to start doing more of my own stitching , my stash is languishing and has been for far too long , so I am now stitching on a personal project which is quite different to what I would normally do , but I'm loving it . I will show that next time .
I did have a teeny bit of stash for Christmas , I ordered it before hand as I knew I would be getting mostly money , so just a few bits. Most of my cash went on new clothes as I have lost over a stone in the last few months and I was getting a bit fed up of my bottoms falling down ,lol .
So , Happy New Year , here's to a year full of stitching , stashing and reading and whatever else you would like .
Thanks for dropping by ,
