To be honest, I don't really follow any designers since I stitch my own stuff :D Same goes for product creators, since I only do full coverage pieces, I don't use hand dyed fabrics or flosses. However, I definitely have to plug my fellow Hungarian, Jucus who goes by xjudesign on Etsy, who is already well-known and liked in the stitching community! :)))
This month's progress:
At the end of last year:
Added: 27056 stitches
Questions from the previous months: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
My fourth year doing the WIPocalypse! :DD It's so nice to see so many new people, Flosstubers among them, join us this year! For those who visit my blog for the first time, my name is Maria, and I'm getting closer and closer to my 20-year-stitching anniversary! :D For this year I have two goals: one that was moved over from last year, to finish the Arrow poster. At the moment I hope I can finish it by the end of April. Once it's finished I'll return to my rotation, may even start a couple of new things, but my main goal then will be to finally finish my Montecristo! :DD
January: What SAL’s are you participating in this year? and If you are participating in the Olympic Stitching Challenge, what challenge are you accepting? What are your goals?
I'm not doing many SALs, apart from this one I only do the By the Numbers SAL of the Full Coverage Fanatics Facebook group, and Cross Stitch Finish Line's Stitchathons. Although I'm actually considering doing a very moderate version of Stitch Maynia if I actually finish the Arrow poster by the end of April! :DD
As for the Olympic Stitching Challenge, the Endurance Race is tailor-made for me, so I'm definitely participating in that one! :DDD
February: Gadgets! Show us your favorite stitching gadgets! and How did you do with Olympic Stitching, and what goals did you achieve?
To be honest, I don't really use any special gadgets to stitching... no frame, hoop or q-snap, no needleminders, it's just my needle, fabric and thread... :)))) As for the Olympic Stitching, I did pretty good with the Endurance race, added 19496 stitches during the Olympics :D
