Late Wednesday night I finished my next square for Love Quilts.
It took a lot of stitching and I was really fed up with by the end of it but it also helped me through the loss of my Dad

I finished it a few days ago and it will always hold a special place in my heart
Not only did I lose my Dad to this awful virus but my Mum is still in hospital recovering from it and until Monday I was self isolating after a positive test although I had no symptoms.
Please everyone do as your asked and wear a mask, wash your hands and sanitize them when your out and about

Here he is at last.
I finished him just after I’d completed the star but only just got round to taking some pics today!
Those tail feathers were lovely to make and I have thought about making some earrings

This one is from Climbing Goat Designs on Etsy and was started before the alien but finished after him because I had to order a colour for it and it took the place I ordered from almost a week to send my order out!
So this one was my 2nd LQ start but my 3rd LQ finish.
My next square is well underway now 🙂

Last year and this year I started doing a new beading start on January 1st.
This year’s beading start is the peacock bauble from Spellbound beads which was a Christmas gift from my parents
And my stitching start is Cirque des Triangles from Ink Circles.
The fabric is a custom dye from Sparklies and I’m using good old DMC
And Since today is Monday and I’m looking after Elliot here’s a pic of him to end

I thought I’d do a quick recap of 2020
I started the year with 26 projects of which I finished 2
I started 26 projects (which I didn’t realise was the same as I started out with until I looked to write this!) of those 26 I finished 21 leaving me 5 to carry over to this year so I ended the year with 29 🙁
I don’t time myself anymore but because of a group I joined on Facebook I count stitches instead and I did a total of 138,370 not inc Jan because for some reason I didn’t record the months total. The best month was March due to a team challenge which I’m pleased to say my team won 🙂
I’ve made an effort to blog more the last few months and will continue to do that and hope to get back to taking part in TUSAL, gifted gorgeousness and hermit weekends assuming they all still run, well I know hermit weekends do on Facebook.
I took my annual ort jar pics on Jan 1st before emptying them and finding them their annual bath
