A very belated Happy New Year! I know I disappeared for a month - we were actually in Japan spending the holidays with my parents-in-law. It was so lovely. Just to have some help with the baby, to be able to leave him with his grandparents for an hour or two so I could take a walk or go shopping...priceless!
We got back a week ago. I've been trying to catch up with everything, including reading everyone's blogs, and I'm nearly there. The laundry has been done, the house has been cleaned, the fridge has been restocked. Back to normal!
Speaking of normal routines, it's time for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL! Jo from Serendipitous Stitching has started it up again for 2017, so make sure you swing by her blog to sign up! We stitch on something that's been gifted to us through
exchanges or giveaways, whether a pattern, kit, fabric, floss, whatever,
and post on the 15th of the month.
A couple of months ago I started SamSarah's 3D Fresh Apple to add to my fruit bowl. You can see my last progress post here. I'm a little late, but I managed to get some more stitching done this week:
Quite a bit more stitched up. The apple is nearly finished. The problem is, I've run out of the Oatmeal floss, and I'm definitely not paying postage to order one floss, so sadly this project is going to have to wait on the backburner until I have a big enough order to warrant the postage price.
On the bright side, this means I'm going to have a poke around in my stash to see what I can stitch up for next month! I've got quite a few gifted goodies, so it really depends on which ones I can kit up easily...
I'm also going to be announcing my annual giveaway soon, so stay tuned for that!
