2011 was not a good stitching year for me. Due to many factors - some within my control and some out of it. I stitched very little, and don't think I started or finished any projects. So far 2012 is a much different (and better) year. Below are projects I already this year :) I'm re-arranging my priorities to include more stitching time - my happy meter appreciates it!

I can't remember in what order these were made, but these are the first two "big" projects I remember working on. I think Sleeping Beauty was the first, I did not do a very good job of keeping track of such things back then. I should have listened to my Mother - ha ha ha :) Both were found from cross-stitch magazines my Mom had, don't know the name or issues though.
In the end the quilt turned out alright, but I learned an important lesson about frogging from this project. I should have done some right after I started and chose not too. I ended up paying for it for the rest of the stitching. Lesson learned!

My Parents have recently been under going a major clear out of the family home. Here is one of the treasures found.
I think the fabric count is 7. This was one of the first things I ever stitched. It was fun to see it again. Within each vertical line the crosses are going the same direction but not all the lines are the same - I laughed at that :)
