So far so Good!

Helloooooooo Everyone!

January started off in a good way... especially New Year's weekend.  So far I have a few stitches in each of my planned New Year starts!  Yay!

The one that has gotten most of my attention is Scarlet Letter's Jenny Bean....I am having a lot of fun with this one.

Ann Tarbox also got started.  This is the first time I am working on floba fabric and I love it!  

The next two have not gone very far at all, but even a few stitches count :)  Here is Mary Gail and Hannah Pepper.  

I love them all so it is hard to decide which one to work on when!  

On the Scarlet Letter Years blog, a new interview was posted up for Melinda of Merry Wind Farm!  I know many of you, while not on the Scarlet Letter Years blog read Melinda's blog and may enjoy checking out her interview here!

Had some fun last weekend... went to my favorite place..... NYC!  

Met some friends at Jazz Standard to see the awesome Lisa Fischer!  She is well known as back up singer for the Rolling Stones and also starred in the movie 20 Feet from Stardom.  This time she was in the spotlight with her band Grand Baton and it was a truly magical evening!  

So that is what I have been up to so far this New Year.  That and trying to stay warm in this polar vortex weather!  lol

Hope you all are staying warm and having lots of stitching time!  xxx

Your starts look good, Krista! What is the fabric you are using for Mary Gail? What count is your Floba?

All great projects.
The pic of NYC is cool.

I can see why it would be hard to settle on which project to work on Krista--they are all so pretty. So glad you enjoyed your trip to NYC :)

Vickie said...

ooOoo! Busy girl. You are up to fun. ;)

Melissa said...

You are off to a great start with all those lovely projects, Krista! I can see why it's hard to know which one to work on first! Have fun!

Margaret said...

Love all your stitching! so exciting! Love going to NYC!

Catherine said...

Love your project choices! I haven't been to NYC in a long time ~ looks like you had a great time!

I always have the same problem with my WIPs. I usually have a hard time puting a project away in order to work on the next one. And with the next one it's just the same, lol.

You have some wonderful WIPs on the go. I also love Floba fabric and I usually choose the 35ct Floba.

Gorgeous starts on these samplers!
Looks like a wonderful evening out too.

Nice progress on your SLs, especially Jenny.
Looks like a great night out too. Can't remember last time I went to a concert, I think I was pregnant with the six year old!!
