2012 - My next obssession outlined - and GIVEAWAY WINNER !!!

Stitched by me so many years ago
Comes out every year from the decoration box
It seems that I am the Queen of Theme - I realised n 2009 that I liked a LOT of Snowmen Charts and decreed 2010 - The Year of the Snowman. Simple rule - any new chart started in 2010 HAD to have a snowman in it.
I stitched a whole 21 snowmen (running total) - and true to form, started 7 snowmen projects on Dec 31st.
Of course it was Sheep that caught my eye during this time. I elaborated on my personal rules.
Any new chart MUST contain one sheep - exceptions: WIP's, Halloween, Christmas and Compassionate Stitching. (This explains 7 WIP snowmen!)
As you have all joined enthusiastically into my enthusiasm (OCD) - this year, my flock of sheep numbered 105.

What's for 2012???                                

 Cats & Cottages.

I have a number of cat charts and I desperately want to stitch Shores of Hawk Run Hollow - as well as a few pieces of architecture.
Rules have changed this year - to try to relax my obsession.
Week 1 = Cats
Week 2 = Christmas Stitching (I've stitched ONE ornament this year!!! Fleece Navidad!)
Week 3 = Cottages/Architecture
Week 4 = WIP's
Week 5 = Anything Goes.
I will also allow compassionate stitching to sneak in when required and Halloween can creep in with Christmas Stitching from August.

I currently have NO INTENTION to create a monthly stitched item as my wall-o-sheep (still needing batting & backing which I was supposed to have done yesterday)

This brings me to the announcement of my giveaway winner. I have started this morning (31.Dec) the final sheep - 105 - to be one side of my scissor fob. The first cat for 2012 will be the other side of the fob.
All names were put into the bowl of destiny - and the winner
(you were all pretty much spot on for answers - I'd not made much secret of the fact had I???)

is . . . . . . . . .


SHEBAFUDGE !!!!!!! (should that read She-baaaa-fudge ????)
(I'll contact you next week to confirm your snail mail address)


For the very last time, thank you to all for indulging my obsession and joining in the fun and frivolity that became 2011.  Let 2012 be the same (although perhaps not so intense on the stitching - my family would like to see me from time to time!). - may all your floss be untagled and your needles point straight - I'll see you all in the New Year!!

Woohoo! How lucky am I? I got a new pair of scissors for Christmas and they desperately need a fob on! The only fobs I have are Halloween and Christmas. Thank you so much!

To save you hunting my email is but I think it is on my blog too. Thanks again

Happy Stitching!
