Happy New Year

So first I decided to brighten up my blog for 2011 and went pink !
I have also changed the girls photo to one taken over Christmas.
Now to stitching...... lots of cards to show so far for this year. I am really happy with how they have all turned out.
This one is for Becki's friend Amy, she is at college with Becki doing dance. The A on the chart had different shoes while the D had ballet shoes... so I swopped them over!


This one is from the same alphabet charts, this time for a friend of both girls who they have kept in touch with from school. E for Emily !


The latest issue of The World of Cross Stitching popped through my door last week and I choose one of the cute bears to stitch for my friend who is about to start cancer treatment. The charts were aimed at being for Valentine's Day but I thought this one would suit a "thinking of you.." card. I actually stitched it in just 2 evenings !



Then today I made a quick decoupage card as I suddenly remembered another friend's birthday which is next week. I got the paper and design from papercraft inspirations magazine, they were free to download. Pretty cute.


So what's next? Still a few more cards..... but I have also started my Poppy Pixie but not much to show yet. I am also taking part in a 2011 SAL and have chosen SafeHaven by Derwentwater Designs. I will try to post updates on these when they begin to resemble something!

Anyway as I am back at work I better get myself off to bed !

Happy Stitching
