New Year UFO Project or Projects?

Cross stitch, embroidery, patchwork, quilting, painting, dress making?
Plenty to chose from with anything with hand needlework as the predominant area for selection.
This year I'm planning to start 2016 with Patchwork. I have a major piece,  needing my attention. In order to have it completed, I'll need to hand quilt it after the top is finished. This particular item has been languishing  in my "to do' collection, partially completed, for several years, so now is the time to bring it out & get it done. I'm sure there will be moments when I'll need a distraction, other than patchwork or quilting. I certainly won't be bored with all the choices life has to offer.

I've been working on this piece trying to have it completed  by the start of the year. Now moved from the "to do" list,  as the first completion for 2016, to make a total of 10 Shepherd's Bush stockings.

The photo is not good, another try  later. For now, it is very subtle in colouring, I did change some of the colour choices & I'm thrilled with how it actually looks. I've moved on to the quilt, progressing slowly, keeping enthusiastic.


  1. Kay the pic is fine and of course would be better in person but it's a finish great.
