One year in review : 2010

All I can say is that it's not been a great stitching year. I usually stitch more than this year with an average of 10 pieces stitched. This year I only stitched 5. Not good. Not good at all. I can mainly blame it on my mood that had more ups and downs this year than usually. I still love stitching so I hope I'll go back to more stitching this year ( because I didn't loose my mojo for byuing kits and charts ... bad bad me . )

My first finish of 2010 was a Christmas cat by Margaret Sherry ( Anchor) . I really loved that one . Isn't it cute?

FINISHED - 01.05.2010

Then I moved to Summer fruits by Lanarte, a Marjolein Bastin design. I wouldn't be me if I didn't stitch at least a Lanarte a year, right? I totally fell in love with that one. It does look like a painting in real. Marjolein Bastin designs are so beautiful. I can't really resist !!!

In march, I also stitched a design that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it: Stitch in time by Margaret Sherry ( Anchor kit). I chose a hand dye fabric by Silkweaver and I don't regret it at all . They both match perfectly in my humble opinion.

03.18.2010 - FINISHED

My next finish was Pink poppy flower by Lanarte. I'm not very fond of that one and still not sure if it was the right decision to not stitch the green ???

And it won't be a good year if I didn't stitch a Somebunny to love pattern: I stitched room for one more by DMC on a Silkweaver fabric. I always love stitching for Christmas. Usually I stitch holidays patterns on july.

The one was left behind. Yes, there is one that makes me hide in shame, one that I like but one that has too many white/creams ... I got so bored that I had to start a new one. It's a cute pattern though. I just need to get the desire to pick it up again and finish it ( a little bit like with my fuschias). I have spent already 4 months on that one.


As you can see, it's a disapointing stitching year as I stitch usually more. This is what I had stitched in 2009 if you want to compare. I'm mostly happy with my choices. My next one will certainly be a smaller one as I have a bad habits of choosing larger pieces that take forever to complete ( especially when I get bored with some colors - like right now with the greens on my Lanarte.)

I hope you all had a great stitching year. I'm hoping to go back to blogging almost daily. I missses it but got ... lazy? I'm hoing to stitching more ( maybe by choosing smaller projects? ) and I'm especially looking forward peeking at all your beautiful stitching that always inspires me ( and makes me buy more stash !!! )

Thanks for your great support. I wishing you all a great year. .
