Happy New Year!

 Well, it’s the end of the first week of the new year and I’m just getting round to my first blog post….not the best start for the new year – at least things can only get better!

I’m joining in again with Daffycat’s  TUSAL, ( Totally Useless Stitch Along). One of the easiest things to join in for any stitcher. For those of you who don’t know about the TUSAL, all you need to do is to keep all your thread snippets (orts) and store them in a small jar or container then at the new moon (or as close to it as you remember!) post a picture of your jar. There are no prizes for having the most (or least) threads in the jar, but it does keep you motivated to keep stitching! (No-one wants to see a picture of an empty ort jar! :) ) Details of the TUSAL and how to sign up can be found here. Even if you don't fancy joining in with the TUSAL, Daffycat's blog is also a great read!

I have a couple of Thank You’s to mention too. First of all a big thank you to Nancy  who was having the most generous Christmas giveaway. I won this chart from her…

 And just as an FYI....Nancy's blog is also another fab read!

And another thank you to Michelle  who had a  giveaway on her blog (more great reading!) and I won the magnifying glasses! 

And with these two prizes I’ve no excuse for not getting any Christmas ornaments finished on time this year!!!

Until next time…happy stitching!

Nice gifts/prizes. Good luck with stitching ornaments (though I am seriously hoping you are not contemplating beginning just yet).
