Another resolution is to get my stitching supplies organised. My threads are usually kept in an assortments of bags and boxes spread all over the house so I bought 4 storage boxes with adjustable compartments for 2.99 GBP from QD and organised all my threads onto bobbins and sorted them in the boxes by number and brand. It is brilliant to have everything so organised now, the boxes hold about 50% more than large thread boxes and I won't keep buying doubles, which I seem to have done rather a lot. The picture shows my Airedale Terrier, Archie, admiring my handiwork.

With four dogs constantly reclining on them though, I am not sure how long they will last. Still it gives me an excuse to make more!

I also love stitching Christmas ornaments and here are three I made last month.
Cute as a button design - Cross Stitcher no 220
Christmas Shimmer - Cross Stitcher No. 220
Hardanger: Cross Stitch & Needlework - Nov 07
The weather is very cold here with snow still on the ground so I am looking forward to spending some time in front of the fire, with my dogs, stitching this evening.
I am not so good with computers so hope I have done this o.k. Time to take the plunge and press publish. Wow, this is scary!
