What's stitching 2015

Opps I did write this post 27th Dec but it's from a draft so sorry it's came up with 4 days ago.

Hi, I hope you all had a great Christmas.

First I would like to say a big thank you to all of you that have left me a comment or become a follower this year. I might not reply to you but I love all your feedback to my stitching. I hope you will leave me many more in 2015.

So what's on for 2015?

I have 3 charts that must be stitched in 2015. 
They are gifts but I will still get to show you as I stitch them because they don't look at my blog. 

Over Christmas I stitched on all 3 so here they are:

The Rose Of Sharon

Here is what she looks like as of today

Sleep Time (New Start)

And So far

Story keep Seasons Spring

So Far (New Start) 

I also hope to get the PR Sal all stitched up in 2015
This is what it looks like so far

Now as you know I'm not doing the stitch from stash sal in 2015 but I did want to join a sal, something fun and easy and so for 2015 I'm doing

Just put your cut off thread in a vase or jar and take a photo by the date every month.
My photo's will also have angels or fairies I have around the house it's where I got my blog name from. So I hope you all don't mind if I post a vase of thread every month, after I post the thread will go into the bin and I start again. I just have to remember not to put them in the bin before the photo. 

So that's the plan for 2015 and everything else I stitch or start is a bonus. 
Happy stitching!! And see you all in the new year.

Stitch From Stash December

My last post for Stitch From Stash.
I'm not joining next year as I have plans to buy a lot of threads and fabric for charts I have and want to stitch next year.
I'm glad I was in the group this year. It made me think and ask myself "Do I really need that?" Most of the time, the next day when I went back to the chart or kit it was a no. So I know I saved money this year and that's why I joined. I also got a free chart out of it so not bad. 
I wish everyone who join's in 2015 all the best.

I've been so busy with non stitching stuff, I don't have much to show you. I did need away from my needle for a while so it's all good.

I've been stitching a Santa by Joan Elliott, it was from a bonus book last year with cross stitch crazy mag. I've put it into a coaster I found in my stash. Now I can have a little bit of christmas all year round.
I've changed the greens to what I had in my threads and the Kreinik from 028 to 102 as I think it looks better, I'm more a silver girl at heart. 

This month I've spent $50 on the 3 charts and threads for the storykeep.

I don't think I will be posting until after Christmas so I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
I hope it's a good one with lots of family and friends.
 Happy Stitching!!!
