My 2011 Annual Report of the Stitching

Hard to believe it’s the last day of 2011 already and tomorrow we’ll start a fresh new year. One of the benefits of keeping a stitching blog is it’s easy to look back through the posts and see what I’ve accomplished (or not accomplished) stitching wise for the year. So I present my 2011 annual report of the stitching…

Gosh, I feel like such a stitching slacker. I hope to accomplish more finishes and stitching time in 2012! I did have a few other random moments of stitching where I picked up a piece and put a few stitches in, an hour here, an hour there, but didn’t get progress pictures of them all. Will definitely do a better job of keeping track next year as well.

How did your year of stitching turn out? I’d love to hear from you.

Cheers to a fresh new year, may it be full of stitches!

About Loretta Oliver

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.

Trackbacks

  1. [...] Last year alone I went through several episodes of blah where I would go an entire month without stitching. I started off 2012 pretty good and then recently things really dropped on me recently, I just wasn’t making time to stitch. [...]

  2. [...] Last year I didn’t have a lot of finishes to share at the end of the year, or even a lot of progress to share. Fortunately, 2012 has shaped up to be a nice year of stitching for me. Let’s have a look… [...]
