I Hate Little Snowflakes...

Wait, let me rephrase that...

I hate stitching little snow flakes, they annoy me...

I didn't always hate them, and I don't quite know why or when it happened, but one day I just woke up and decided, "I really hate stitching those little snowflakes" on...everything.

I have chosen to step away from the monthly winter themes and focus on learning some new techniques...such as gridding, confetti stitches, and Hardanger.


This leads into my 2013 Stitching list, which is smaller than usual and contains some first time and rather lofty designs, not to mention my carry over of current 2012 WIPs...

2012 Finishes...

Blue Ribbon Designs "A Little Quakeresque"
Ink Circles "99"
Cottage Nest Interiors "Downton Abbey ABC Sampler"
Prairie Schooler "ABC" series Stitching Bee

2013 Starts...

Victorian Sampler "Birds of a Feather"
Victorian Sampler "Gingerbread Stitching House"
Mirabilia "Bliss Fairy"
HAED "Tis The Season"

This will be the first time that I have undertaken either Mirabilia or HAED Designs, and since I have been wanting to discover both, I am really excited!

I have also signed up for my first stitching course, a Cyberclass from Victoria Sampler, which will feature "Birds Of A Feather"...yaaay...I cannot wait for January!

You will little snowflakes included...booyah!

I am hoping to include some RAKs here and there, throughout 2013, to say "Thank you, dear friend"...for I have received so much from the blessing of our friendship!

That would be it for this edition, dear friend.

I send you off with a final post before the hustle and bustle of the Teakettle Clan Christmas begins, and, with it all of Ma's attention...


I wanted to take a moment to wish you a very Merry Christmas, filled with Peace, Joy, and all of the Blessings that this Holiest of days holds!



  1. I love your new start..good luck with 2013 stitching projects..merry Christmas and a very nappy new year xxx

  2. Maybe you should sew on a few tiny snowflake buttons instead! Huggles.

  3. Looking forward to seeing these new projects in the new year!
    Have a wonderful Christmas with your clan!

  10. Well, I think little snowflakes will be my nemesis by year's end. Ha!

    The cyber class sounds interesting. Enjoy!

  11. I don't enjoy stitching snowflakes either - too much starting and stopping! Good luck with your 2013 stitching list...I haven't dared make one yet as it would be a mile long LOL. Thank you for entertaining us all year with your lively blog...have a wonderful holiday season and happy new year!

  12. The four projects for 2013 are a great choice. I have been thinking about starting a Mirabilia for quite a while myself but maybe I should first finish some of my bigger WIPs. But who knows what I will choose to do in 2013 ...
    I wish you and your family a happy 2013.
