New Year! New TUSAL!

Happy New Year everyone!

Kicking off this year's blogging with the first TUSAL of 2013.

Yes, we all made it, the Mayans got it wrong and we have lived to survive another day....

Not done a whole lot of stitching over Christmas, but I have restarted Avarice. I am close to a page finish so I am saving that for another post.

I emptied my TUSAL pot. Although I didn't manage to fill it I did get a good 1/3 of the way up this year. I aim to do better next time!

You can really see the browns and beiges from Avarice.

This year's pot is currently nestled between my birthday flowers. Its my birthday tomorrow (12th Jan)

Just starting out. The blues are from my kit that Yiota kindly sent me last year - I have started Parthenon. Then some Avarice threads after that.

Gorgeous smells coming from my birthday blooms - I wish you all could smell them!

Next time I will update Avarice as I am maybe a couple of day's work away from a page finish.



  1. HAPPY early BIRTHDAY!!! I do hope you're older than me. lol lol Always makes me feel better to think I'm younger. :0)

    With all those orts you must have been a very busy stitcher so far this year. I've started two projects just need to find the time to pick up that needle a bit more. Maybe I should close the laptop and make the time but darn if blog reading isn't addicting.

  2. Happy Birthday. Lovely flowers. Great orts from 2012. Look forward to seeing your stitching in 2013.

  3. happy birthday deary...
