Here we are at the start of another year. I am looking forward to finishing many UFO's and am getting myself organized to help achieve this goal. Last year I met many new bloggers and hope this will continue in 2013. If you pop in for a visit, please leave a comment as I love to read what you have to say. Let's all have a great year.

1 Xmas Item a Month, Aiming for Accuracy Blocks 4 and 5.
A day late in posting my 1 Xmas item for this month hosted by Narelle from Pins and Whiskers. Use the link to go over and see what other bloggers have made this month. The pattern had this stitchery placed on the front of a gift bag but I decided to make a Christmas Card Holder instead of the bag. These days most people send emails instead of cards at Christmas but I usually get a few and so thought this would be nice to keep them in the stitchery pocket. Haven't got the right hanger in my stash so will need to get one at the Brisbane show in October. The stitchery is a Hugs and Kisses one and has some colour added to it using a Derwent pencil and sealed with fabric medium.
I also managed to finish two more blocks for my Aiming for Accuracy QAL.
Below are Blocks 4 and 5.
These photos don't show the colour of the fabrics that well so hope I can do better with future photos.
I also added some fabrics to my stash on the weekend. I love word fabric and so I was pleased to get some of these. No idea as yet what project I will put them in.
Well must go as I have some secret sewing to finish off. Happy Stitching till next time.................
