The first finishes of 2010!

This is my first finish of 2010. Started on New Year's Day, I finished 'Here we go a haunting' from Shepherd's Bush at quarter to nine last night, January 2nd.

Here we go a haunting
I also have the matching scissor fob to go with it. The little box also very nice. This is the first time I've stitched anything by Shepherd's Bush and I really enjoyed it. A good job as I have three of their snowmen in my stash!

My second finish is 'Simply Snowdays' by Waxing Moon Designs. By rights this should have been the last finish of 2009 but I ran out of one of the Weeks Dye Works colours and had to wait for some more to come in the post. This photo was taken on the phone so is not of very good quality.

Simply Snowdays
Recently my mind has been on my stitching plans for this year. So far this is what they are looking like. Starting with the first full week of the month
Week 1
Something from the stash, starting off with 'Icy Hill' or 'Barnabee's Quest' or maybe 'Lady Scarlet's Journey', any way something from Just Nan.
Week 2
Something else from the stash starting with 'Simply Spring' from Waxing Moon Designs followed by the Autumn and Winter Arbors from The Drawn Thread (Spring and Summer were completed last year)
Week 3
St Nicholas Tree Skirt
Week 4
White Nights in St Petersburg
Timeless Elegance Christmas decorations for Yoyo's SAL
Mary Wigham
Where the month has five weeks I am going to do 'Open House', which is nearly finished, followed by something that can be done in a week.
Well that's the plan, let's see what happens.

Wow! Your just blazed through Haunting didn't you? It looks great. That fabric is lovely!
Snowdays is lovely (but reminds me that I need to go out in that stuff and that's making me grumpy)

Sewing is beautiful as always. Looking forward to seeing your choice of Just Nan. I wouldn't know which to choose they are all lovely.

A finish already.... I'm so impressed. Both designs look lovely, I've never stitched a Shepherds Bush design myself but could have just been inspired to add to my stash :-)

I see your stitching fingers haven't lost their touch with New Year festivities.
Beautiful finishes. I'm in awe of your rota. I still can't get the hang of rotation stitching.
Happy stitching to you as always.

Two beautiful finishes to begin 2010 off with "happy dances". Looks like you have a wonderful plan to get things accomplished. I look forward to reading about the progress of each and seeing the finishes.
Take care!

I just love all of your cross stitch projects. They look so nice and professional looking; and I like the way you show them all framed up and finished. You are a good inspiration to me. Will always look forward to seeing what next you might have. Good start to a New Year!
