I've reached 15!

Technically, it's 16 finishes this year but one of them is a secret for now.

I'm sorry he hasn't been ironed but I was just glad to get him finished. You may remember that I stitched two companion pieces back in 2012/13. I started this guy around then as well but as it wasn't finished in time, it was put in a box and forgotten about! 
I've also finished another trolley duffel from StudioCherie. This was one of the two that I had planned to start last summer but have just got around to finishing it now. My pockets have certainly improved but I still have trouble setting the sides in neatly. 

Here are my WIPs:
Star Wars
I did plan a new start but it was meant to be Mumma's Boy by Paine Free Crafts, not the Star Wars chart by Clouds Factory (oh well!). I decided it would be a good birthday present for my other half especially as he'll also be getting the Star Wars Battlefront game - which looks amazing.

Crafting will probably slow down as uni starts up again next week :)

2016 Daily Cross Stitch SAL

As I have so many Daily Cross Stitch charts, I've decided to start a SAL in 2016. The idea is to stitch one of their designs each month* with posts going out on the last day of the month.

These are the 12 that I will be working on (not necessarily in this order):

1. Ain't nobody got time for that
2. Balloon house
3. Brick game
4. Cute-zilla
5. Gingerbread zombie
6. Nautical design
7. Nomnom cookie
8. Unstoppable
9. What the fork
10. Tea rex
11. Colourful phoenix
12. Cute chameleon

I can tell you that it was hard choosing 12 out of the hundreds I have saved to my laptop!

I hope some of you will join me :) Here's the link to the facebook group.

* You are free to choose the designs you would like to stitch.

I'll make sure to visit everyone and to mention all those participating on my blog posts. You can link up to your blog here:

I will provide a link up on each relevant blog post so that you can link directly to your post for that month.
