February stitching report

I just managed to squeeze one more finish into the month - Michelle's HAED RR piece. This is part of Fire Mermaid by Selina Fenech, charted by Heaven and Earth Designs. That ends a month of mostly obligation stitching, although I did fit in my SALs, some stitches on The Token (picture to come soon) and a start on the Quaker Stocking.

Finished
Early America (Little House Needleworks) - gift for Becky
'A' (A Mon Ami Pierre) - gift for Anne
Coeur Encadre (De fil en aiguille) - gift for Karen
A humbug for Lina
Redwork exchange for........!
Quaker Friendship RR round 1

It's March 1st so I'm officially on the Wagon Challenge. I've actually been on the Wagon since Jan 1st, but I haven't announced it formally here. So now you know! I'm on the Wagon all year for rather obvious financial reasons (The Move!) So far this year I've spent NZ$18 (about £6) on ribbons and pins.

I have one exception, which is St Reatham by Long Dog Samplers with fabric and thread to stitch it (Carol and I are going to SAL at some point if anyone else wants to join us). I'm also allowed thread for existing WIPs if needed and stuff for finishing or to make gifts. So plenty still to look forward to!

  3. Wow, Nicki, that's a gorgeous finish! Congratulations on squeezing it in!

    As for a year on the wagon - you're awesome! Good luck. I would gladly stitch out of my stash for a year (or even longer!) if we could move back to Maine. Hmmm, maybe if DH read this, he'd want to move .... LOL!
