Happy New Year....happy new stitching!

Glad to see the back of 2010. That was a horrible, tough year for me. I'm hoping 2011 will be better.
I started the new year with a new cross stitch. I know that's very naughty, but some of the girls in the Cross Stitch Cafe on MSE are doing a stitch a long with the Cut Thru designs by Bothy Threads. I have 4 of these, so I'm going to do Princess Palace first. I gridded the fabric with my washable pen on New Years eve (whilst watching a film & enjoying a glass of wine) and put the first stitches in yesterday. It's gonna be a long project, but I aim to work on it one day a week. I also started a Mill Hill beaded kit just before Christmas and I'm well on my way to finishing that. I'm enjoying the beading much more than I expected to. I'll post pics up tomorrow if I get chance. Off to Gloucester on Tuesday for my belated Christmas with Mum, then to Swindon for a few days break. I'll be taking some stitching along!
My goals for January are to finish the Mill Hill kit (it's called Queen Anne House) and finish 3 squares of 'Cakes' on my DoC kit. Plus work on the Princess Palace SAL. It's gonna be a busy year... :-)
