Thanks to Measi and a few others who shall remain nameless I have joined the 2012 WIPocalypse with the aim of actually finishing some of my older projects that are beginning to mutter and gang up on me.  There is a bit of a list coming

1. Queen Mermaid
2. Chatelaine Holland Springtime Mandala
3. Chatelaine Ostsee Mandala
4. Chatelaine Japanese Garden
5. Chatelaine Egypt Garden (bit of a theme there)
6. Mirabilia Blooming Bride
7. Mirabilia The Dreamer
8. Long Dog Samplers Time and Tide
9. Jan Houtman Liberation Sampler
10. Permin Windmill Sampler
11. Sue Hillis Pirates
12. Passione Ricamo Galatea
13. DMC Unicorn
14. DMC Lighthouse

There area few more that are lurking around like this and this.  There are a few more but these are the ones to be concentrated on this year.  The first finish should be Queen Mermaid as I am putting the beads on it now.

New Year, New Blog

I've been longing to change away from my old Multiply blog for a while. Then I stopped blogging for other reasons but I need to restart for a couple of reasons. One is to give me a voice again and the second is to give me a timeline on projects.

I'm also going to try (bad word that) and blog on a regular basis again. This blog is solely to be for my stitching in its increasingly varied forms. The quilting and ranting will have separate platforms!

I'll try to include some cross over pieces to add interest like how come quilters are starting to stitch, knot and crochet as well and how we are becoming these crafting polymaths!

Right, that's a start. Off to join the WIP-ocalypse and get more finishes this year
