Blog Hop Time...

Good Saturday morning, dear friend!

As the picture below states, it is time for...

The 14th Hop and the first one of 2013.

The topic is...

What was your biggest stitching accomplishment in 2012?

Hmmm, let me think about the first question...well, I would have to say starting and finishing the 2012 CCN Cottage of the Month series, and keeping up (mostly). I always say that what I lack in consistency I make up for in passion, because sticking with a year long project is not my strong suit...but stick with it I did!

Check out my year of pillows...

CCN Monthly Cottages 2012


What was your favorite stash acquisition in 2012 and will you be using it in 2013?

That one is easy squeezy, as I discovered on a prior Blog Hop (thanks to Stitching the Night Away), it would be my Pako Needle Organizer...

This thing rocks so much, that I bought myself a second one for my 2013 HAED WIP, which answers that question...yes indeedie, I will be using it in 2013!

I can keep all of my needles threaded and ready to stitch for any WIP...Brilliant!

Thanks for the visit, dear friend, and I send you off with a warm, cozy hug!
