Happy New Year! 2016!

Happy New Year everyone. Unfortunately, ours was spoiled by neighbours partying till 5am and so we didn't get very much sleep and I ended up being quite ill - painful throat; feels like it has razor blades in it. You know what I'm talking about.

But, not allowing that to put me off my Crazy 7 new starts, I thought I'd show you where I am up to. 

Day 1

Robin's Song
Little House Needleworks

Very pleased with my progress here and loving the jobelan fabric I am working on. Thank you to Tracy for the fabric.

Day 2
The Moon Shell
The Sampler Girl

Super excited by the progress on this one. I have almost completed one page and it is only two pages long so a definite finish is in the bag already. I am stitching it using DMC and some lovely blue mottled fabric 28 count but not sure what it is. 

Day 3
Morning Glory
The Drawn Thread

Pah! I am not happy with this at all. The design is way too fussy for me - chock full of backstitch and other stitches and the fabric count seems quite small 34 count legacy - which I have stitched on before so go figure.

So that's it from me for now. 
I've been into work then home again due to this horrid sore throat so Day 4 is coming up. 

Ciao x

I'm sorry neighbors ruined your new year and your good sleep....our neighbor's dog howls and yelps and barks to beat a band on most evenings and it is enough to make me want to beat my head on the wall...I understand :(

LOVE your starts :)

Sorry to hear you're poorly. Lack of sleep isn't fun! Your new starts are all so beautiful, especially The Moon Shell.

Love all your new starts. I think the Drawn Thread one would drive me nuts too. Sorry about the inconsiderate neighbors. Hope that sore throat goes away quickly. Strep?? Sounds painful!

Great new projects you started the new year with. Not so good is your sore throat, I hope it already feels somewhat better by now.
