From Me

Happy New Year friends, well, 2013 is here already. We had a very quiet New Year's Eve evening last night - a bbq dinner followed by homemade berry icecream, followed by a couple of glasses of bubbles for me, Baileys for Glenn and lemonade for Hannah :) We didn't see the new year in, but then I don't think we have since before Hannah was born.

Today I thought I'd share a few of the gifts I was making secretly over the past few months:

For Clare, a cat stitchery from Natalie Bird's Red Home

I made several stitcher's wallets, this one was for Kath

A Shepherd's Bush cross stitch, using the Joy freebie, also for Kath

Merry Christmas Hanging Sampler by Pineberry Lane, also for Kath - I'll definately restitch this design one day for myself

I have been getting loads of stitching done over the break - early morning seems to be a productive time. I still quite haven't got into complete holiday mode, waking around my normal rising time of 6am and some days I haven't been able to fall back asleep.  I have finished Santa's House, the first of the new series by Country Cottage Needleworks so I'll be back tomorrow with an update.

Until then, Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year Katrina. Lovely projects. I especially love Merry Christmas. Our neighbourhood was very quiet last night, you wouldn't even know it was New Years Eve, a few fireworks at about 9pm. My sister said it was the same in her suburb in Hamilton.
Have a great 2013.

You made some absolutely gorgeous gifts! The Pineberry Lane Merry Christmas is one that I want to stitch as well.
I'm so fortunate to have something stitched by you. Your work is just lovely!
