Last finishes of 2018, and first ones of 2019

I’ve come to realise today just how woeful my online activity has been over the last 12-18 months or so, and my online albums are missing a lot of information and projects haven’t been added at all … my blog used to be the ‘source of truth’ for all my projects and chart information etc, but not any more. After spending an entire day today doing a bit of a tidy-up (nowhere near finished yet though), and trawling through a few years of photos on my iPhone (!), it’s prompted me to add the details of my last finishes from the end of 2018, and the first finishes of the new year. So, without further ado, here are the details …

  1. What lovely projects! I’m a bit like you with the ‘online journal’ dropping off a bit lately. Fingers crossed for a productive year of stitching and blogging!

  2. What lovely ornies. I wonder what inspired you to stitch those particular designs? LOL I love the Glendon Place one, it’s nice to see a city in cross stitch rather than the more usual country cottages.
