YOTA 2014 - January

Hello! I hope you are all well and sticking to any new years resolutions you've made!

Today is the first Saturday of the month, meaning it is YOTA day! If you have no idea what YOTA is then just follow this link to find out more, and maybe even join in if you fancy!

Last year I managed to finish off an old piece of stitching, which I was very happy about as I know otherwise it wouldn't have even been touched in 2013!

This year however, I have picked a much larger project. Realistically I don't think I will finish this one this year, but it will be good to make a nice amount of progress.

I have decided to make "Twilight Magic" by Heaven and Earth Designs my YOTA focus. This pattern was featured in World of Cross Stitching magazine in 2012 I believe, and was my first ever HAED start.


Sadly last year it got no love at all...

Here is where I am currently



See you here again next month for an update! Fingers crossed with a decent amount of progress!

  5. Good choice! Now you have an incentive to get more progress done on it. Can't wait to see what it'll look like at the end of the year!

  12. Great choice for your YOTA focus piece. I just joined as well and looking forward to stitching with everyone and cheering them on. I agree with you that these SAL's do help us keep on track and get stitching, that's why I joined 3 for the year. Happy stitching for the rest of the month.
