Let's Go...

At the beginning of 2014 I still have quite a few WIPs rolled over from the 2013 challenge. My main aim this year is to finish my Castles in the Air, keep up with Around the World in 80 Stitches and work hard on Cruising the Information Highway.

So where am I at the end of January with them?  Not much further on realistically *sigh*  We've had a busy month with the kids returning to school and all their clubs starting up again. DS2 went into the Childrens Hospital for dental surgery and DS1 working hard in Taekwondo ready for his grading in February and a competition.

I have finished the first row of my HAED "Cruising the Information Highway"

Stitched on 25ct 1 over 1
I did finish my Positive Thinking SAL

I also started another project, it's called "Charles" by John Clayton but to me he's "Mr Darcy"
stitched on 28ct evenweave
I've worked on my Storykeep HAED as well
Courage stitched on 25ct 1 over 1
Heaven & Earth Designs
But most of the month I've had my head stuck in a book as it's a bit too cold to take stitching with me to the kids clubs, most of them don't have heating :-(  I think I may have to up my reading challenge on Goodreads this year as I had no problem hitting it last year :-)

  1. Charles, nonsense, absolutely it's Mr Darcy! Love the positive thinking, Jo. Do hope the weather improves for you all soon.

    Please please please send ring our way, we'll take it all. Most of Australia is sweltering :(

  8. Charles is probably one of Mr. Darcy's middle names, don't you think? :) - I do love your Positive Thinking SAL - merci!

  9. Ah. I love Mr. Darcy, I cross stitch often to Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth. (Handsome guy) I get excited when I see the women stitching in the different scenes of the movie. I call Pride and Prejudice as one of my "Movie to Stitch to"
