And an end at the end .
After feeling that I hadn't accomplished much this year with my crafty finishes , I set to yesterday , late afternoon and all evening to stitch on LK ABC Lessons , and... finished it! The last stitch went in at 11.21 last night, and made the end of the year for me .
I have to say though , that I was unimpressed with the threads. The colour variegation was hardly noticeable at times, which was a little disappointing. Lettuce Leaves was very blue , I hope I never get lettuce that colour , lol , and at least three times the thread just snapped as I was stitching, the ends also got very fluffy .
I did end up with over a full skein of Cocoa Bean left , so if anyone is stitching this and buying the threads separately, if you are careful with thread, you will only need four of these .
So , this brings my stitching project total for the year to 41 completed.
They are , two large, LK and Calm Seas , three squares for LQUK , three medium projects and the rest are small or small-medium. Less than in previous years, but I haven't been churning out the charity squares as much , and there have been a lot of times when I haven't stitched for weeks on end , so not too bad .
I have read 120 books in the year , and made seven swirly scarves .
And here is my ort pot for the year , now I am hoping to start again today with a new project ,lol .
It has taken me over two hours to read all the posts for the last 24 hrs, everyone has been busy ,lol .
Take care , and enjoy the start of the year.
Thanks for dropping by ,
