2017 draws to a close

Well 2017 has certainly been an eventful year - here's a collage of my stitching, I was surprised at how many finishes I had.

I've two more gift photos to share - Postie arrived with two Christmas parcels from my friends overseas, a lovely surprise that extended our festivities - thank you.

Beautiful broach from Deb
Two gorgeous coasters from Cathy
I've just finished my final ornament for 2017 - it's my orts ornie. Every year I save my orts in a bon bon jar my MIL bought me many years ago - then between Christmas and New Year I stitch a final ornament and stuff it with my orts. This year I used a lovely DMC varigated thread I received from Gill for Christmas.

2017 orts
Used as my stuffing 
My 2017 Orts Ornie
Wishing all my stitching friends a very Happy New Year - let those needles fly in 2018

A photo like this makes you realise how much you've stitched during the year. You must be satisfied with your work. Happy stitching in 2018.

Lovely collage of stitching, it makes you realise how much you have done this year, as Mary just said!
The post does seem to be slow this year. I received two gifts after Christmas that were posted in plenty of time.

Happy New Year Clare! Your collage looks lovely, you've had a very successful stitching year even if partly due to enforced rest. Here's hoping for better luck in 2018!
