Review 2018

Hello! Happy New Year!

Last year during the weekends I stitched a quaker piece, my intention was to show it today, but with the Christmas season been so busy I did not finished in time, I also made a big mistake in one part of the quaker and I need to frog it… Big failure to me… So I will show it in my next post. Big failure is also the number of stitched pieces that I did not frame… I also made three starts that I never posted about it for lack of progress… I really enjoy each piece from last year! I also learned how to knit, but I aware that I am quite slow in knitting…. I’m knitting a cowl since November…

So lets take a look at my 2018 year review stitching:

My focus piece is this old work in progress, a big sampler by Reflets de Soie called Mystery Maria Alice 1889 Sampler, I sign up for the stitch a long in 2012… add some stitches that year, and worked a little more on the sampler in 2015…

I will be able to finish this Sampler this year? I hope so!!

This morning I also put some charts aside for this New Year:

Do you have some stitching plans for 2019?

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great stitching year! Happy stitching,
