A new year and a new challenge

Seeing as it is a new year I decided to offer up a new challenge to myself, (like I  need anymore!) and see if I can create and stick to updating a blog on a regular basis.
Blogs have always intrigued me, I was not sure if I wanted to do one, or even needed one, but now the new year as rocked around I figure why not!

So as I sit here on the morning of January 3rd 2014, in what is going to be a very hot day in Brisbane Australia - currently it is 29oC (84oF) and it is only 8:41 am, I find myself taking up the challenge. 

My current WIP is Chatelaine Designs Taj Mahal Garden Mandala. It is a fairly new start I treated myself to on my Birthday last month. I'm stitching it on 28ct. I hope to have page 1 finished in the next day or so. 

All my current finishes and WIP photos can be viewed in my Ipernity Albums for those wishing to take a peek.


  1. Go girl. I love blogs, specially other peoples. ;)
    Good luck with the Mandala, they are superbly awesome when done.

  2. Welcome to blogging, Debs. The link to your Chatelaine didn't work for me. Did you know you can blog on ipernity, too? The tab "Articles" is for posting. I've never used it, though.

  3. Hi Meari, link fixed thanks! Yes I did know about Ipernity but like you never used it and don't know if anyone does. I know there are a lot of stitchers on so here I am, as I'm always happy to connect with others that understand our obsession lol.

  4. Welcome to the world of blogging! I try to update mine regularly, but fail miserably I'm afraid! Looking forward to seeing your progress - I've never attempted a Chatelaine design, although I have one or two on my wish list!!

  5. You have beautiful finishes, Deb!! :D

    Welcome to the blogging world!!
