Happy New Year!!!
Here is hoping that 2013 goes a little smoother than 2012!!
It is the first day of the new year and I have a finish and new start...
My finish is 6 Fat Men by Lizzie Kate. I really enjoyed this pattern. I had hoped to finish it by Christmas or at least by the end of 2012, but life intervened. Lots of color and fun in this one, it's a happy design.
I should be finishing up some of my works in progress but yesterday I received the latest Mirabilia Roses of Provence and I couldn't resist starting it. Here is my start on Lilac by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.
It's not much to look at yet - but the pattern is amazing I can't wait to see it develop.
The Haro family ended 2012 on a sad note. Our beloved dog The Return of Jafar got out of the yard and was hit by a car and killed. The boys, particularly Mark, were heartbroken so we decided we would get a puppy. Yesterday we picked up our new family member Gollum. He is a very cute little lab/hound mix that we rescued from the shelter. He is approximately 3 months old.
A few stitching resolutions for 2013: I will finish The Thimble Fairy; Madonna of the Garden; and Dress Makers Daughter. I will also try to work on at least one of my HAED's. In addition, I would love to finish the Muses and stitch the Red Ladies series as well. I am also going to try my hand and framing some of my pieces on my own. I have a ton of completed designs that are boxed up because I can't afford to have them professionally framed and still buy more stash. And finally I will try to post updates more often.
