It's been a while....again

It's a bitterly cold day in Derbyshire but once the housework is done I'm going to sit by the fire and stitch. Last year wasn't a good year for stitching or blogging and I thought about closing my blog down but there are lots of things that I've done that I like looking back on so I thought I'd give it another try.

Youngest daughter's wedding took up a lot of last year as did re-modelling the garden and redecorating the house and the fun doesn't stop there as my eldest daughter gets married in just seven weeks and I've not even got my outfit yet.

I am getting back into stitching and at the moment I am really enjoying it again and I'm trying to do a bit each day. I found a couple of photos that I'd not put on here from last year so at least I've got something to show.

CCN Snow Love

LHN Warm Winter Woolens which was a gift from Barb 

And a new start in the parlour at Needlecraft Haven , Peace on Earth by LHN

Three more teapots have been put on the shelf, just another three to stitch and it's done. These are quick to stitch so I don't know why it's taken so long to do.

A few more stitches have been put into Celtic Noel, I really need to finish it this year.

I'm still knitting away on DH's jumper that I started before Christmas and I've had more stitching goodies for my birthday so I shouldn't be short of something to do.

I know it's a bit late but I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year,

until next time, take care,

There was a lot happening for you last year. But good to see that your stitching mojo is back. And you have stitched on some very nice projects.

Nice to read a post again...the thing about our blogs is, we can post as we wish and have time. Maybe once the next wedding is over you will find some time to stitch and post so we can visit with you.

Hi Sue. I just love all your work. The winter woolens is so cute. I have been a member of your blog for a long time, but it was under my old blog which was CrossN My Stitches. Somehow I wound up not being able to get into it. So now I've rejoined you with my new blog which is Lov'N My Stitches. So glad you're back to your blog again. We all have busy lives and at times, just too many things are going on. We can't keep up with everything. LindaLee
