A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Cross stitch


Last year I managed to complete 4 projects, one of which was the huge project – Precious Dreams, so I was chuffed to bits with that.

This year I’m doing another Hooties stitch. This one is Year round Hooties and has a Hootie for each month. I’ve decided to stitch each Hootie in its month as something to break up other projects.

After looking at everything in my stash that I had to stitch, and there’s a lot of it, I then went and bought three more charts and started one of those instead. Sigh. I do hope to finish a couple of WIPs this year as well as starting new projects, and with the SAL to keep me honest, I might even manage that.
