  1. Did you finish the Tardis Starry night chart? I found it on your old blog and wondered if it was available for purchase?

    • I never did finish it. I didn’t like the fabric so stopped stitching with the intention of restarting on something different. I never did get around to it though.
      As far as I know, the chart is not for sale. It was done specifically for members of the Cross Stitch Forum.

  4. Wow! You have finished a lot of projects. I love them all but I especially like the month by month designs. The quilter in me would never be able to resist making them into a wall-hanging. They would look gorgeous together 🙂 Happy New Year! Avis x

  5. I didn’t notice until after I sent my last comment that you read as well. I looked at your booklist for 2013 and can’t believe you have accomplished so much reading and stitching. I, too, am obsessed with reading. I have a Kindle full of books and shelves in my room full of books waiting to be read. Have fun. I’ll be watching your blog and waiting for updates.

  6. Really nice work!!! The Wildflower picture, is that from Just Another Button Company, or whatever their designing name is. Can’t remember at the moment. I love seeing other people’s work. The months are pretty and look like Country Cottage Needleworks. I did the Cafe Latte picture and collect a lot of her patterns. At any rate, these are really beautiful.

    • Thanks for your lovely comments Karen 🙂

      I think I’ll add the designers to each piece in case anyone else is curious about them. I should credit them anyway, thinking about it.

      Wildflower is by Sam Sarah but yes, the buttons are JABC. The months are indeed CCN. I love both CCN and LHN – designer of Caffe Latte and The Bookshelf. I’m working on another LHN at the moment and have several more by both companies in my To Be Stitched pile.
