However, it has been a bit wet and windy here today, so apart from doing some food shopping to keep us all well fed, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to write a post wishing you all the very best for 2018 and to share with you some of the monthly projects that I am intending to participate in this year.
The first will be a little familiar if you are a regular reader of my blog as, I am going to be participating in the 'Beyond TAST' challenge run by the wonderful Sharon Boggon of Pintangle. The last couple of years I participated in the TAST Challenge run by Sharon and above and below, you can see a couple of the samplers which I completed by working the different TAST (Take-a-Stitch-Tuesday) stitches. This year I will be joining in 'Beyond TAST' which I am anticipating will be a lot of fun. The idea is that you take one stitch family per month and work a project using that one stitch family..... taking it to a more in depth level. The first monthly stitch is running stitch and I can already see that this is going to be a really fun stitch to work with.
The other new stitching group I am joining in with is the 'i stitch club' run by one of my favourite designers, the lovely Gail Pan. Again, regular readers here will know that I love Gail's designs, so I just couldn't resist signing up for this BOM club which is due to start shortly. If you would like to join in too why not click on the button below or on the right hand sidebar which will take you to Gail's information page about the club.

I am sure that I will be joining in many other stitching challenges as well as working on a few projects of my own design this year and I will share them with you as and when I get them started. In the meantime, I can't wait to get stitching!!
