Tuesday, January 3


We visited our 'Zoo-that-is-just-around-the-corner' yesterday and stumbled upon this tree-cozy. You could even do a bit of knitting yourself (with help of volunteers) surrounded by the Zoo's snakes and lizards (safely behind glass). I didn't though. I don't know how to knit and I might start to like it if I tried it. And I definitely don't need another hobby. Embroidery and a bit of sewing is quite enough at the moment. This year I'm going to try and do a bit more drawing as well.

This month I already have some nice crafty stuff planned: one is to finish this embroidery and the other is stitching a piece for my swap partner in the Phat Quarter Embroidery Swap! In my last Feeling Stitchy post I also pledged to 'stitch something neat on a doily' but I first need to find some vintage doilies to stitch on. Oh and there is of course the launch of the &Stitches e-zine too! What are your crafty plans for 2012?


  1. To finish all my unfinished projects before buying anything new! Love that pink and white fabric, so pretty!

  2. oh yes I have good intentions to use more of my stash fabrics before buying new fabrics and definitely need to finish lots of projects too!

  3. I'm CRAZY exciting about your new stitching e-zine. LOVE stitched letters!!

  4. Hi Nicole,I've just found your blog and I'm really enjoying browsing through your archives. I love your embroidery style, I too use lots of animal characters in mine, it's just too difficult not too! Your patterns are lovely too. Great work!
