2013 review, 2014 plans

I haven’t stitched in weeks. I  was trying hard to finish 6 bats and a black cat before the end of the year but I just got so busy, It’s getting close though.


I ended WIPocalypse 2013 with 8/17 done.  I’m not real happy with that. I tried but feeling forced to work on something just…got old.


I made a list for WIPocalypse 2014, but I deleted it. I’ve decided I am not going to do any challenges in 2014.  Instead I will stitch what I want, and stitch for the process not the end result or some goal in mind. Just to enjoy it. I would like to get Fire Goddess and Japanese Garden done, but we will see.


Here is some highlights of 2013



I made great progress on Japanese Garden.  It’s so close to being done.


I finished a few pages of Dragonflies Whisper, my HAED.




I framed quite a few pieces that I finished stitching in 2012.







 I did a quick valentine’s piece, that I really adore.


I did this one for my mom. I’m so proud of it.

I also finished stitching a few pieces that I have not yet finished.




Although I did a terrible job of posting monthly on TUSAL, I did add to my vase throughout the year. Here is where I ended up.




I had A lot of additions to my vase this past month. I had lots of thread from cowboy dreams. On the top is my additions from cirque.

Tusal January 2013

This is my first Tusal post. I wanted to join last year but didn’t get to it in time.  I picked a pretty vase, it used to be my nana’s so it is a sentimental thing.

What is Tusal you ask?  Basically, you collect your thread ends and save them. Each month you post your growing collection. Sound like fun? Hop here to find out more

I’m afraid I haven’t much to show for my first month. My appologies for the crappy photo. It’s January in Ohio and sun is hard to come by.
