WOYWW # 187 Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to you all.
So here we all are in 2013 and I hope all my fellow WOYWW’ers from over at The Stamping Ground are fighting fit after the revelry of your New Year’s celebrations and are ready for another year of reveling what’s lurking on your work space.
I myself had a rather quiet Christmas but made up for it New Year’s Eve, when eight of us booked into a local hotel. We spent the afternoon enjoying the use of their pool and Jacuzzi and then it was a snack and drinkies in the bar before getting ready for a five course meal later in the evening and then partying until 1.30 in the morning. I’ve not done that for many, many years and the old body is still protesting about all the exercise it was put through….don’t know where I ache most, Lol, but we had a fantastic time.
Now, knowing that I’ve decided to step back from the card making a bit in 2013, I didn’t ask Santa for any new stash., but my table does have something new on it.
I mentioned a while back that seeing everyone’s knitting popping up everywhere was giving me itchy fingers again, not that I’ve knitted in over twenty years, and I began to think it might be nice to have a bit on the go myself.
But what to knit?
The answer to that came just before Christmas when news of a new baby reached my ears….can’t say to much about it at the moment because she hasn’t announced it to everyone yet, but it was my excuse to get the needled clicking.
So as usual I was in at the deep end…….
and I’m knitting a 3ply shawl……….that should keep me quite for a little while!
Despite not asking Santa for any paper craft stash he did actually did fetch me something crafty after all. This lovely lot……..
This will be my next large cross stitch project and she’ll be my fourth of the Celtic Ladies, Celtic Autumn.
There are still a few of the Needlepaints and silks to come because I’m guessing Santa didn’t have room on his sleigh for them but I have everything else I need to get started on it as soon as I finish the Sampler which is coming along nicely. Ive stitched quite a bit more than when that picture was taken. The whole botton is done now and I'm working on the top left-hand quater.
Well, that’s all there is to see on your first visit in 2013 to my work desk.
I’ll be along in the next few days to see what you’re up to but I doubt it will be tomorrow as I’m off to the pictures to see The Hobbit.
Thanks for popping by and ………….
