My Sunday Stitchy Update 01/14/18

Happy Sunday Everyone! 

I hope everyone is still stitching away on their plans for the year! I always love the beginning of the year as it is full of excitement and hope of finishing lots of projects!

First up, a finish!

Well Hello There!
January
Designer - Hands On Design
First Stitch 01/07/18
Last Stitch 01/11/18

I love this series because they are such quick stitches.

Next up is a one of my new starts for the year.

Christmas Rules
Designer - Lizzie*Kate
First Stitch 01/12/18
Progress as of 01/14/18

I don't know if you can see the start of a snowman over there on the left right above the snow? I think I am about to rip him out and change the color to B5200 the DMC Bright White. Right now it is a cream color and I didn't think of a floss toss before I started. At least it is a quick and easy fix but I will probably still use the DMC 712 for the letters because they will be boxed in with other colors.

Normally I switch projects on Mondays but I am keeping this out since I started it late in the week and I want to rip out the snowman while it is on my mind!

Next weekend is hermiting weekend! YAY So be ready to hermit and stitch the weekend away and I will be looking forward to your hermitting posts!

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

Congrats on your finish!

I think I fixed my "no reply" status. But, I have no idea what I'm doing so I can't be sure.

Cute finish! I always sub the 712 in LK designs for BS5200. I don't think 712 shows up well unless you're stitching on white fabric.

The Hands On Designs are charming and it's always so rewarding to have a quick finish. Hermiating weekend sounds good to me!!

Another adorable Hello piece. Love it! I see the snowman. But I agree with you. The bright white would make it pop better. I'm looking forward to IHSW. I just don't know yet what I plan to work on haha.

A quick small finish, it looks lovely.
I found from experience that stitching on the sweet LK designs mean that you have to do some colour swaps.

Hi Faith: Nice finish.
I have changed the colors in designs myself, sometimes I am not sure what the designer was thinking.
