A New SAL for 2015

I always start something new on January the First, and this year I found this SAL - A New Stitchy Start 2015 - that suits that perfectly.

I think there are still a few openings left - limit is twenty.  I've put in my 'application' :D

If I get to join, I will be doing this lovely thing that I got for Christmas - it's a HAED!  Like I need to start another, right?  But I'm doing it anyway.  It will be my January start whether I get to join or not:

Unspoken by Adele Sessler:



This is the stitching mock-up that the site uses;  I've been wanting to do one of these black and white Elves for a long time!

More hats!

Pics taken at my Mum's house.  My youngest sibling in a requested 'Jellyfish' hat, and my BIL Rob with his (finally finished) Kittens in a Row afghan.  I also made the little amigurumi ninja laying on the books.



And then Rob in his Viking Hat!  I like the colors of this one best.

Back to Blogging!

Wow, I've been gone a REALLY long time!

This year has been... interesting... and I am so very ready for 2015.

I have practically no cross stitch progress to show off; I seem to have taken an unintentional break from that particular craft, but I'm ready to pick my needle back up!  I've signed up for YOTA and the Turtle Trot and I plan to do IHSW again.

I did do quite a bit of crocheting for Christmas presents this year and I'll show some pics of those over the next little while.

Here's my brother in his crochet Viking Helmet.  He loved this and wore it for hours!
