Happy 2012 everyone. (I know this is 4 days late but you know what they, better late then never!).
So the beginning of the new year was of to a good start. I said I wanted to sort out my bedroom and I started to do that on New Year’s Day. But the big job still needs to be done. And that is to sort out the cupboard! It shouldn’t take long, maybe even just a mornings work. And as far as I am concerned, most of the stuff that is in there can go to charity.
You may have noticed that I have added a new page to this blog, Rotation Rotation. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it simply means I have now got a rotation plan for my cross stitching. Since I have got two projects that I would like to carry on working with, I have decided to do one project every other month. So in other words, for Leonardo I am working on him in January then the next time I will work on him will be March. In February I will be working on my second project, The Snowman and then going back to him in April. Does that make sense?
Anyway, this is how I left Leonardo in 2011.
A nice half of the project finished.
And this is how I left The Snowman in 2011.
You can just make out the white even though I am stitching on blue frabic.
I have done the stupidest thing with The Snowman. Thinking at the time of starting back in Barmouth that I didn’t need the key chart page, I did! The blue that I stitched in full stitches was in fact meant to be half stitches!! I couldn’t be bothered to correct it. No one will know unless I do actually point it out to them!
I have other finished projects to show you that I haven’t shown you during last year, but I have forgotten to take a picture of them for this time round. Hopefully next time!!
Not only am I having a rotation plan for my stitching, I am also having one for my writing. I have got three stories on the go at the moment. One has got a dead line while the other two haven’t. One of them is my current long story ‘Hourglass School’. The other two are short stories being written for challenges. One I have made really good progress with, the other I am still working out if I’m going to stick to the beginning that I’ve got.
So one day I will be working on ‘Hourglass School’, another day I will be working on the longer running story and then the next day after that it will be this month’s writing challenge. Or will I throw that rotation away and just write on what I feel like?
Thanks for looking…
