December Swirls

Holy crows! I nearly forgot to post this!!! I did finish the main part of Bent Creek's Snapper Year. I've been contemplating starting the border soon. This was a really fun project to stitch...except for frogging that May block when I had that disaster of a miscount! Every block was very easy and I will miss this one after the border is done!

I never did decide what to stitch in 2011. Unless I come up with something quick I suppose I will just stitch whatever comes to hand. It's not like I don't have three large WIPs and that border on Snapper Year to do! The past two years of having a set monthly stitch have been very enjoyable. I really like the 12 month blocks but one can only have so many calender-type stitches hanging around, right? Maybe 2011 should be my "finish stuff" year?

Best wishes in the new year!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Congratulations on such a cute finish, Sharon! I have no plans for my 2011 stitching other than an ornament a month again (I am addicted to stitching those little things!), but your idea of "finishing stuff" sounds like a great one...

Wishing you a year filled with love and laughter :)

demeter83 said...

Sorry chick, this isn't technically about this post (although the stitching is very pretty). I'm asking someone knidly about how I do something.
When you've got your WIPs down the left handside of your page, how do you set that up? I'm presuming it's something to do with adding a gadget, but I can't work out how to do it, please help!

CathE said...

I've enjoyed watching this one progress, it certainly looks like a fun stitch.

NEEDLEWINGS said...

And a happy new year to you too! Lovely stitching as always! I even got a cross stitched table cloth from my sister for Christmas! I love it!

That last block looks great. I sometimes get an empty feeling when I finish something bigger. I hope you will find many fun charts to stitch this year. :)
