Lizzie Kate December Flip-It Stamp - finished!

Hello again!

I am going to start by saying a lot of big thank yous.

First, thank you to everybody who left comments regarding my attempt at designing the November poppy. Despite your positivity I'm still not completely happy with it so may re-attempt it next year but under less pressure!

Second, an even bigger thank you to everyone for such lovely comments about Owls In Love. I have been truly overwhelmed with how well it has been received by so many of you. In one personal email a stitcher pointed out that the design and fabric were so different it was a like breath of fresh air. Thank you. I hope you'll think the same once you see the project framed!

Now, back to business. I have finished the final LK monthly stamp. I am pleased to have stitched them all as planned and on schedule but am a little sad to have reached the end. Nevermind, I haven't finish-finished them yet so I still have that to look forward to. Here's the last stamp:

Stitch count 47 wide by 47 high
Stitched on 16ct Rustico Aida 2 over 1
Started - 1st December 2015
Finished - 8th December 2015
Total stitching time - 10 hours 50 minutes

But it's not all doom and gloom on the LK front as I shall be stitching some of her Tiny Tidings next year as my one-a-month and Smalls SAL project.

As for my stitching for the rest of the 2015 - all of my obligations are out of the way so I'm free to stitch on what I want! I might pick up a big project, I might try to finish some more Challenge pieces or I might pick up some of my neglected Challenge pieces. But one thing's for certain - there will definitely be no new starts before 1st January 2016!

I hope all of your plans for the festivities / holiday season are going well. I've still got some decorating and all the wrapping to do but that's about it. Let's hope Santa is busy wrapping lots of stitchy goodies for us all!!

Take care everyone :)

Congratulations on stitching all of these cute designs in 2015! I think this mitten is one of my favourites.
I'm looking forward to seeing which of your lovely WIPs you choose to work on next...

Congratulations on fulfilling your stitching commitment for yourself! Sometime I think those are the best commitments to fulfill. The Tiny Tidings charts are nice and I will look forward to seeing yours stitched up.

Isn't it a great feeling when you have accomplished all the stitching plans that you have had for the year? So nice to see the last stamp that you finished stitching. I'm very curious to see how you will finish-finish them all.

Katie said...

Wohoo you finished them!! Great job sticking with it!! Sorry you aren't happy with November's design. I think it's perfect. I know I am my own worst critic though so I understand how you feel. Can't wait to see what screams for you to stitch on it. I have all the wrapping to do too. Just a few more things to shop for though.
