Next year...

I'll probably be editing this post regularly but I think I need to write down all the stitching commitments I have for next year and also any ideas I get along the way. It seems I may have signed up for way too much.

Needleprint Beatrix Potter SAL
Christmas Ornie SAL
Prairie Schooler exchange (1 every 2 months - no extras)
Birthday Exchange (around may/june)
4 PIFs to do
BB exchange (Jan)
Winter House (Jan)

and I have this idea....

Basket of Biscornu!! Stitch one biscornu a month and have a lovely basket of 12 of them by the end of the year. Anyone interested??


Oh and I have some cool cool news as well.... Is anyone doing the Papillon mystery??? Well I have been collecting the parts and umming and ahhing over all the gorgeous ones in the gallery and itching to start. I emailed Yvonne from Papillon to say how gorgeous all the pieces in the gallery were and to thank her for this wonderful design and I happened upon asking her whether she thought this piece could be made into a stitcher's wallet. A couple of days later I got the most wonderful reply saying it could be made into a stitcher's wallet and my suggestion had prompted her to do some instructions on how to make it into a wallet and she had spent a little time designing some extra bits to go inside it. She said she would post out an extra newsletter in a couple of weeks time!!!!! Wow!!! So look out for that one ladies. I guess this means I better get and start that one too hey? I did actually go and purchase some Anchor multicolours for it.

If anyone does not know what on earth I am talking about go to the link in my sidebar and the mystery is called How Does Your Garden Grow. It is free for this year but you need to sign up for the newsletter to get it so if you haven't got it - better get it now before it is too late!!

Allie said...

Basket of biscornu sound wonderful, as does your idea for the Papillion mystery. I too have been undecided whether to stitch it or not. You may just have made up my mind for me.

Irene said...

Basket of Biscornu is a wonderful idea. I thought of that for last year, but didn't follow through.

Love the idea of the basket of Biscornu, how cute that would be. With some being seasonal, you could rotate which is on top too. Good luck with your list of commitments for next year, sounds like we'll be seeing many lovely stitching pictures.

I like the idea of a basket of biscornus. That's a finish I can do pretty easily. LOL. I've been collecting the Papillion mystery charts but hadn't decided upon doing them yet. I LOVE the idea of a stitchers wallet. Can't wait to see the extra newsletter.

What a fabulous idea for the stitcher's wallet, Hazel!! I'm going to wait then to stitch mine. I wish I knew how to finish a biscornu..just that would make me happy. I'm friends with Lody...I should know how by now. Want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a warm and joyful stitchy new 2009. Hugs, Deb
