I've seen on a few blogs recently that we're all eyeing up the new releases coming out at Nashville this year. As Karen says, ABC Stitch Therapy has a really good list (over several pages) of what’s coming up. I'm trying hard to resist as I already have far too much stash, but of course, this caught my eye - how's that for timing?
This is Just Nan's Floral Fifteen and isn't it gorgeous? I'm not completely sure about the Charm Garden Pins, but I'd love to stitch the biscornu. I think the stitching will be a bit more drawn out than my snowflakes as each square is more densely stitched and there are a number of colour changes. I'll have to get hold of that one!
Now that I've finished my snowflake biscornu, I've made some more progress on my SB Family Sampler, but forgot at the weekend to try and get a decent photo.
I've also been doing a little crochet, initially as a birthday gift for a friend.
A crochet flower brooch - as I rather liked what I came up with, I made another for myself!
Crochet Bouquet and I crocheted the inner rounds using a varigated Debbie Bliss yarn with the final round in a finer mohair.
Finally, the recipients of my PIF will be SGVChicago and geeky Heather - I'll be in touch soon to get myself organised!
I've also been spending far too much time recently setting myself up in iGoogle having too much geeky fun! I'm constantly struggling to find a good way to manage my favourites and the blogs I want to follow. Bloglines and Google Reader just aren't spontaneous enough for me and I keep loosing track of things I want to keep up with!
Oh, and I'm starting to pick up a few stitchy friends in Facebook, so anyone else who'd like to be my friend, let me know - you never know, I might become a Facebook convert!
