Something new...

Hello 2014!

I really would like to finish a lot of projects this year... last year have been my most unproductive year and have only finished 2 projects!  That is why I would like to make up for it this year.

I have things NEW this year... and I am really happy with them...!
First, I have my crossstitch corner! :-D... It's not really all that I wanted... I still want a drawer cabinet and some other things. But for now... it's all fine with me. Here are some pics...

Then, here are my current projects...
Meowy Christmas Kitty Bookmark... a free design from Charles Craft....

Then, here's another one... Mini Lighthouse!

....really hoping for more updates to come! :-D

New Projects 2014

Happy New Year! :) 

I'll still be working on with my WIPs of 2013, especially the butterflies :wub: . For this year, I'll be working on new projects with varied designs but of course, butterflies will still be my forever favorite! 

I have updated my Stitching Journal and realized that I have made a total of 126 finished projects (small & large ones) from 1998 to present! :applesauce: I've only finished 2 projects last year (my most unproductive year)... mainly because I had eye concerns and have been forced to use progressive lenses. I do hope to make up for it this year amidst household chores and office works. :ratherbe: 

And so, here it goes:

My first finish of the year 2014 - "Follow your Dreams"


...and I have started a new project to start off the year... "Psalm 23"... it's a 19th century style sampler with traditional motifs and it's my first scriptural sampler project! 

This is how it will look when finished...

Hope you like it! :-) Thanks for lurking in :wub:

My Stiching Journal

Hi, happy new year! :)

I have started a stitching journal since 2008. I have it in four parts:

1. My Finished Projects 
A list of all my finished projects since 1998 (photos are in a separate pic album in my external hard drive).
2. My Xstitch Stash
A record of all additional new stash I bought from 2008. I have attached pics of my previous stash prior to 2008.
3. Links to Xstitch Sites
A list of crossstitch sites with freebies. I indicate types of designs featured in each site. I use 1 page per site.
4. My Xstitch WIPs
A record of my current WIPs. I used 1 page for each project. This is were I record the details of each project: designer, size, fabric used, where it came from, whom i gave it for, date started, date finished, etc....
5. My Xstitch Friends
A record of all my friends who shared same interests with mine... friends who sent me xstitch gifts so I will be forever thankful...
