Happy New Year! I hope that 2013 has started off well for you all.
Over the past few weeks I have been deciding what my projects will be for the new year. It has been quite hard to pare down to only a few!!
I already have two WIPs that I will continue, although one of them is quite close to finish!
This would be SM1678...

and also my SAL that I am stitching along with Nicola, Michele, Robyn, Elaine, and Shannon, the German SDW Band Sampler by the Scarlet Letter....

I am so enjoying both of these right now. The colors, the flowers, the history behind them.
But, there are others also calling me!!
That would be Permin's 1826 Museum Celle Vierlande Sampler. I am doing this one as a SAL with some facebook friends in the Sampler World group. I am very excited to get this one started. I have been wanting to do a Vierlande sampler for a while now and this was finally the push to get me going. I am very glad that there is no hurry on this one, just go as we can.
Then the next two BIG projects are for the Scarlet Letter Year challenge....
Ann Grimshaw, for which I have a beautiful piece of 32 ct cream Sienna linen I plan to use. I am just so unsure of what color to choose! This is the pile I sit and stare at hoping one will jump out at me! lol! If any of you like a color let me know, PLEASE! :D
The latest color I seem to like is the one to the left, but that could change tomorrow!
And the second sampler for the Scarlet Letter Year Challenge is Dorothy Walpole.
This one there are no worries about picking a color! I am planning on using 36ct flax Edinborough linen.
So I guess I will also have to master the art of multi-tasking this year!
and hopefully stitch a few ornaments here and there too!
I hope you are all having a fun stitch-y weekend!
I am looking forward to working on SDW this afternoon and evening while watching the Golden Globe Awards. I am glad we are getting full into awards season. I saw two of the nominated films this weekend.... Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook, both I feel are excellent on their own merits. For Hugh Jackman fans, Les Mis is a must, he gives an extraordinary performance. Still my favorite film of the year is Argo although I still have a few more to see. Hopefully, next weekend!
Happy Stitchings to you all!!
