Help. I can’t decide what to focus on in January. Vote on what should be my main stitch for January. All of these are projects on my Year of WIPs list. This won’t be my exclusive stitch for January, but it will be my main piece.
Earlier this year I decided to join Melanie Watkin’s Year of WIPs Challenge. The idea is to make up a list of projects you want to finish by December 2017. I decided to add 35 projects to my Year of WIPs (YoW) list. Here’s the list. I will update this list with the finishes as they come.

Hello beautiful people!
You may or may not know this, but my YouTube channel (Heather Stitches) recently passed a milestone: 1,000 subscribers! To celebrate, I wanted to do a special giveaway for my wonderful subbies. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on the “Neuschwanstein Castle” kit that was generously sent to me by RIOLIS back in May. So I had a thought: I wonder if RIOLIS would be kind enough to sponsor my 1,000 subscriber giveaway? So I shot them an email and…..THEY AGREED! I’m so excited! They have generously agreed to send one lucky winner the RIOLIS kit of their choice!
Below you will find the form to enter the giveaway. It will be open from October 15 2016 though October 31 2016. The winner will be chosen at random. Once the winner is chosen, I will contact them and have them pick out a kit from the RIOLIS needlework kits website. I will then email their name, address, and the name of the kit chosen to RIOLIS, who will send out the kit. Please be aware that RIOLIS ships from Lithuania, so it might take a few weeks for the winner to receive their prize. Good luck!
