Happy New Year! A 2021 Summary

In 2021 I had 28 finishes. It is much less than the number of finishes as 2020 (42 I think?) but most of them were a good deal more complex. And several of them were off my “bucket list,” projects I deemed to be high priorities in my stitching career. I also had a good …

Oh happy day! Strawberry Garden is finished!

Yay yay yay! Strawberry garden took only 3 more stitching sessions to finish up! I just love it! Goodness it was a lot of lazy daisies. But towards the end I was a lot less particular about perfect placement. They may be off by a thread here and there but I think for this design …
