At some point in January I want to a post about all the things I've carried over from 2018 but I need time to get them together, take photos ect so today is all about the new starts.
A small group of us on Facebook are doing an ornament SAL. We started out with good intentions last year to stitch a Christmas ornament a month, well that didn't turn out too well, but undeterred we are setting out yet again to attempt to stitch twelve ornaments in 2019, some are alternating between Christmas and Halloween some will stitch just Christmas, we will be sharing our finishes on the last Sunday in the Month, although mine will more than likely not be fully finished as it's such a pain to get all the finishing paraphernalia out for just one thing.

My new start on New Years Day was "Good Tidings" by The Drawn Thread
I'ts been a while since I've stitched anything using just one strand of thread but I do love the way it's looking.
This coming week I will be alternating between these two pieces with perhaps a little bit of scarf knitting when the light becomes to poor to stitch by.
I hope 2019 got off to a good start for you, it was back to work for us on Wednesday and it was nice to get back some routine to the days, I like routine, I function better with routine, plus I always start the new year with a new 'back to work wardrobe' so I get to start wearing all my new clothes, of which I got quite a lot this time, all in the sales I hasten to add. I don't really go in for sales but I chose shops where I could buy good quality clothes at more or less half their original prices and that will last more than just this year, a lot of the time I bought on line, so no trekking around shopping centres winner all round!
I hope you all have a good week whatever you are doing
See you soon
