Happy New Year 2017

Happy New Year everyone,

I was quite surprised when I looked back at all the mini finishes from 2016.Happy New Year 2017A lot of cross stitching has been going on and it’s given me many hours of pleasure.

These finished projects include two large SALs and a secret present which can now be revealed. If you want to see the posts relating to the individual finished items, click the photos on this page.

There is also a patchwork and quilting round up on my other blog Oh Sew Tempting.

Thank you to everyone who supported my blog last year, whether you’ve been reading anonymously in the background or actively liking, commenting and emailing. It’s nice to know I’m not talking to myself.
