New Year Beginnnings - Be it a Bit Late!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! I know, I know it's February!

For me it was really quiet, New Years eve was spent at home watching movies on TV! Not that I really minded, it was nice to sit down and write down what I wanted for the year coming up.

I had 3 new starts for this year, yes 3! Like I need more WIPs! Though there isn't much to show on these hence no photos.

I also had 2 finishes so far, hooray!!!

Pattini d' Argento
By Cuore e Batticuore
Stitched on 32-count natural Belfast Linen
Recommended Floss

Parisian Street Scene
By Maria Diaz
28-count Lugana
Recommended Floss

I don't know when I started these exactly but they are now finished!

Another update on Italian View


Lately I have been watching Stargate Atlantis, unfortunately they only made 5 seasons of this but it is my absolute favourite!

Hopefully it won't be too long before my next post but since being back at work I have been so busy, work really interferes with my stitching!

Happy stitching 


  1. Hi Michelle, I am your newest follower, I just popped over from Jo's blog. I love your two finishes, especially the Cuore di Batticuore design as I have just bought several of her designs but I hadn't seen this one. It looks great on the spotty fabric. My blog is at if you would like to come visit. hugs, Kaye

    1. Thanks Kaye! The Cuore di Batticuore designs are fabulous and relatively easy to stitch up! I will pop over to your blog to have a look too! :)

    1. Thank you! I don't often have finishes because I take so long to finish anything, you should see how many WIPs I have, though I'm sure I'm not the only one with many WIPs!

  3. There's a very European feel to this post! I love that first design, the spotty fabric is great and the figures are so cute. Even the trees are adorable!

    1. I really seem to be drawn to european designs and I love Cuore di Batticuore designs, I have another one already to go :)
