My Sunday Stitchy Update

Welcome and Happy New Year!

This year I decided that I am NOT joining a bunch of different groups and starting lots of new things. I have done that for the last couple of years and the only thing that did was add to my UFO / WIP pile and my stress level!  LOL I already have lots of pieces to finish (I hope) and LOTS more to add into the rotation.

I did rejoin the Stitch From Stash group though because I feel it made me really think about any purchases I wanted to make instead of just throwing it in my cart and hitting the BUY button!

Since this is my first post of 2015 I
must show you my new Ortament
This was made with my
orts from my 2014 stitching.

And this is what I have been working on so far this year...

Shades of Blue
Progress as of 01/11/15

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Love the ornament ball!!
Very pretty stitching!
I did the same thing one year. Joined a crazy january and still have them sitting, unfinished.
Stitch from stash does keep one in line, doesn't it.

I love the ort ornament!! I think I am going to do this for next year! What a great idea! I didn't join a lot of groups this year either, I started to feel like stitching was a job instead of something that I did to relax. So I have 1 Sunday SAL that I am doing with a friend of mine that we have done for years now and that's going to be it. I should do the stitch from stash because lord knows I can do that from now until the end of time
