A Good Start

Hello my friends! I hope you've all had a fabulous start to the New Year. I know the weather is not making it easier for any of us. I've never known rain to be so continuous. Still, it's the perfect excuse to stay inside and stitch :) My only stitching-related New Year goal is to keep up with the Stitch From Stash posts. I'd like to get my post in for every month, and stay within budget of course :) I'm doing well so far, not a penny has been spent. 
I have my first finish of 2014 to share! Hurrah! I started this little guy in December. He sure helped get me through the last few days of last semester. I think he's got a very sweet face :) 

I'm hoping to make him up into a large scale ornament and send him to live with my grandmother :) We'll see how long it takes me to do just that :P

And I have my second finish of 2014 to share! Hurrah hurrah! This was a cute kit I had in my stash. I decided to leave off parts of it, including the backstitching. It's just how I wanted it to be :)  

It needs to be fixed on the hanger you can see in the picture. Then it will be all ready for Hallowe'en :) I have a couple more of these kits in my stash, so I'm sure they'll be making an appearance soon.

And finally, I have my latest start to share. Cath really did spoil me with a birthday parcel full of lovely kits. I've pulled out another one to help me think of summer days when the wind is howling outside. I really love All Our Yesterdays designs, long time readers will remember this is not my first pattern from this range. You can see other designs I have stitched here.

I think this piece will keep me out of trouble for awhile :)
This week is all about getting ready for my final semester. I can't believe I'll be all finished with Uni by the summer. But I'm trying not to think about that just now. I'm just going to take things one day at a time :)
I hope you are cosy and warm wherever you are!

You're having lots of rain, we're having lots of sub-zero temperatures! What a year so far :)

Best of luck in your final semester--where have the years gone?!
