This first page is of some stitching my Nan did for me when I was about 7. It was originally frames but the frame has been broken for a while & the aida was starting to go yellow so hopefully the acid free scrapbook page will help preserve it!
Finally found the groovy chick stitching I did when I was 12!!

So picture 1 is of the 8 kits I bought, from top to bottom, woodland enchantress, aroura cabin, sitting pretty, dimensions stocking bell pull, baby footprint birth sampler, humphrey's courner 'Humphrey & Rudolf', Solo 'contented christmas' & spot the dog!
Picture 2 is the Aida I bought from the sew-it-all stall for £15 (£6 each or 3 for £15) and because I'd spent £15 I got the fairies cross stitch book for free!
Picture 3 is all the other bits & pieces I picked up today, a mini frame, tail grabber, bead catcher, button embellishments, magnetic needle keeper, beads, bobbins & some coasters.

- complete all my current WIP's
- start & finish 'popcorn flower's for you' in time for my grandma's birthday
- learn how to do french knots once & for all
- to complete at least one large project (one of the mirabillia or passione ricamo charts i have in my to-do pile)
Other Resolutions this year are:
- pass my driving test
- put any bonuses I get from work into my savings account (and not spend it!!)
Got a lovely stash of stitchy stuff from my mum & dad for xmas, had lots of aida (mostly sparkly & one hand dyed), 2 mirabillia charts, reusable project cards, some petite needles & short beading needles & a chocolate scented kit by DMC which I can't wait to try out!
