Stash Shopping

I ordered the new Just Nan's Spring Mouse in a House and Rosebud Tweet from my LNS (Stitcher's Place).  
 
 
While I was there on Saturday I found some great deals on 28ct Lugana (2 different shades of brown) and linen (blue whisper) remnants and a full piece of 28ct Jobelan Christmas Red.  
 
I also bought a new Imaginating pattern called Let's Retire.
 
Another pot holder but it is a lemon pattern and 5 DMC Perle Cotton.

Let's Visit Canada

I don't remember the last time I spent hours doing nothing but cross stitching while watching movies on Netflix.  I worked on Let's Visit Canada by Imaginating.  This is my before photo taken on December 8, 2016.
 

Here is my progress from today/tonight.
 

I also did some shopping at my LNS (Stitcher's Place).  I bought 2 more Imaginating patterns.  Let's Do Coffee will be for my friend Lisa who loves her coffee. .  
 
 Let's Be Frozen will be for my Christmas/Winter decorating because my husband Dave loves snow globes.
 
I found a few patterns I would like to stitch in the new Stoney Creek magazine.
 
I love stitching gadgets so I bought this one.  Not sure when I will use it, but it looked neat!!

Goals for 2017

2016 Stitching Review
Last year started out ok, but I soon lost my stitching mojo and didn't get it back until the end of the year. My stitching and blogging suffered because of it.  I hope this year will be better.

2017 Stitching Goals ... It looks like it is going to be a Just Nan year!!
Finish stitching
Let's Visit Canada and sew it into a Canadian Flag by July 1 (Canada Day).

Stitch all my Just Nan Limited Edition ornaments (no particular order)
1. Gingerbread Santa Mouse
2. Gingerbread Reindeer Mouse
3. Romeo (Groom) Mouse
4. Juliet (Bride) Mouse
5. Miss Witchy Mouse
6. Witchy's Sister Mouse
7. Emma & Eliza's Christmas Hat (tree)
8. Gingerbread Garden Cube

Stitch other Just Nan charts (no particular order)
1. Feathers and Flowers (Tiny Biscornu)
2. Spring in the Meadow
3. Amethyst Snowflake
4. Floral Fifteen (fifteen sided Biscornu)

Assemble 3 Just Nan Limited Edition Ornaments I stitched in 2016.  Not sure if I'll wait and assemble them all when I'm finished stitching the other 8 in the list above.
1. Gingerbread Angel Mouse
2. Strawberry Bunny
3. Little Hedgie

These should keep me busy for the year, but if not I have a few other projects on my waiting list.

Winding Bobbins

I started winding the DMC floss onto plastic bobbins.  These are the ones I got done today.

I had to stop until I find more plastic bobbins in my stash.  Hope to finish these tomorrow.

Christmas Cross Stitch Stash

The following cross stitch items I bought myself for Christmas.  There are a few patterns in the Stoney Creek Cross Stitch magazine that I want to stitch.

I added the Just Nan Gingerbread Santa Mouse kit to my collection.  In 2017, I hope to stitch all of my Just Nan Limited Edition Ornaments.  I have several mice kits (bride/groom/Santa/Witch/Witch Sister/Reindeer).

I went through all my DMC floss, these were the only colours missing from my stash.  I also bought extra black.
