What are you going to do in 2016?

I really fancied using up all this yarn I have from various projects and saw these mitred squares on Ravelry. I thought I 'd just knit a few now and then, but they are very addictive so before I knew it I had knitted 16!
 
But I am definitely going to stitch this, it is my favourite cross stitch.

But I love this too, which was a present from  Ingrid

And of course my lovely Fairies at the Bottom of our Garden, the chart was gifted me from Cath  who searched through all her magazines to find it for me.

I haven't tried to cross stitch for a week or two, but I am going to have a jolly good go! A broken arm is NOT going to stop me! I think I will also go through my charts and find something else I'd like to stitch, it's always nice to have several projects on the go!!
Happy New Year all and hope you have something waiting for you with those little xxx's I feel  quite excited and can't wait to get started.. 2016 here I come!

You have very nice projects on the go here Chris. I am still struggling with the neck pain 24/7. Will see a specialist next week. Thank you for your prayers.

Love the colours on your squares. I'm at a loss on what to stitch next, oh well I have a couple of weeks before I finish my cushion.

Well for me 2016 is all about making as many Sunshine crochet lap blankets as I can which I am going to donate to a local residential care home. I love making them and want to try lots of different designs and this is a good way of doing that and using some of my massive wool stash. I would like to get back into cross stitch as well, I used to stitch all the time but only managed one small ornament last year. Again I have so much stitching stash that I really should use some of it. xx

Those mitred squares look like they could be addictive. :) Nice stitching choices too! I'm hoping you are able to do a little stitching ~ with your positive attitude I'm quite sure you will be successful. :)
