I haven't yet decided on all my projects for 2013. So far I have a stitching list which almost entirely is made up of Christmas ornaments (the list is in the side panel). Usually I stitch myself a large Christmas project each year, but this year I'm thinking I'll give that a miss. Wall space is at a premium in my house, and it's hard to see where I can hang any more cross stitch projects - at Christmas or during the year. I do have in my stash a TW sampler (of an English Tudor style house - I've forgotten the name of the design) that was sent to me by a British stitcher many years ago. She had started it, and decided not to proceed, so sent me the entire kit. My youngest sister absolutely loves the design, so I am tempted to get out the kit and stitch it for her. The jury's still out on that one, though.
I have had one finish this month - the Wedding Sampler I started last year for my niece and her husband. It's adapted from Rosewood Manor's Baltimore Rose Wedding Sampler. It is currently with the framer.
In January I also stitched four Christmas ornaments, but haven't yet made them up. The pictures are in the post below. I did finish stitching the border and back for the heart Santa ornament (but haven't yet added the beads):
and I've started another Santa ornament. It's from Donna Kooler's 555 Christmas Cross Stitch Designs paperback (2000).
I had wanted to make the ornaments up before the end of January, but it's more likely to be early February now. I do like to 'batch' my ornament finishing, so they'll all have to wait now till the latest Santa is ready for making up.
