TUSAL - 2014

Yes, I know I've not followed the rules and posted my TUSAL much at all for the past few months.  I have, however continued to collect my orts in my little fabric pouch and transfer them every so often to my TUSAL bottle.
As it is now the end of the year, it is time to show all the orts collected in 2014, before I start the year afresh.

(in comparison with previous years, this is a shameful total of stitching.....)

Now to move forward into 2015

Happy New Year everybody!

Rounding out 2014 - and a promise to re-energise my blog

Current progress on an old WIP- Shores of Hawk Run Hollow
Hello Friends,

A table runner for my boss -
it has pretty Christmas fabric
on the back.
Well, it's been much longer than I expected, but here I am again.  It's now after the Christmas rush and I've time to sit down and reflect upon my year.  I have had time to stitch, but nowhere near as much output as I had in 2011 or before.

I have been lured away from my blogger habit by facebook over the past 18 months.  It is my intent to remedy this during 2015- call this my NY resolution.

I did manage to stitch one or two items this year, and I'm sure I'll find the pics somewhere on either my phone camera or laptop.  The pics here today are from my Christmas week of stitching

Yes - I have changed my surname this year.  I took my mother's maiden name of Blackburn as my own.  This keeps my initials, barely necessitates a signature change, and honours my mum.

My first ornament with my new surname.
