Sunday Stitchings & Starts

This week has been a good week stitching wise, I have made good progress with Snowman 10, I'd say I'm about 50% finished? The trees, snowflake band and scarf are all finished, just the snowman, hat and bird left to go :)

I ended up taking Snowman '10 and my crochet project to my group on Thursday, good thing too as when I got there I realised I'd left the instructions for my crochet project at home!

My orts for this week are looking good too, all the threads are from snowman 10 except two little tiny ones which I'll tell you more about in a second. The container they have been pictured in is my stitching cupcake, it's a trinket pot I was given for Christmas a couple of years ago and because the lid is slightly padded it makes a fairly good pincushion, once a week I add my orts to my TUSAL jar and I'll show that on the first of each month (following my own rules for TUSAL this year!)

So those two little orts I told you about... Saturday I was hit with a bout of start-i-tus and rather than hope it go away again rather quickly I endulged and after sortingout my basket of small charts into seasons/holidays/month I picked out a chart to stitch that I had most of the threads for (I've had to substitute 2) and late on Sunday I started.

This is my new start (first one of 2013!), I'm not going to tell you what it is until it's finished but this is as large as the design gets, it's designed by Lizzie Kate, is approx 3.5" by 3.5" in size and there are 12 designs in the set, feel free to have a guess at what it is I'm stitching :)

Next week I hope to finish Snowman '10, start hooking up squares for my crochet project, finish my new start and possibly do some work on Nose Garden :)

Happy stitching!!
