TUSAL first ever post and As Ye Sew!!!

This year I have decided to take part in TUSAL over on Daffycat's blog.  I really think this is a great idea to remember what you have stitched over the year but also as a great way to recycle.  I already have a project in mind to do with mine at the end of the year!!!   I haven't got a proper jar yet but have been putting my ORTs into a glass.  Here is my first ever TUSAL piccy:

I have another finish for 2012.  It's the morning project that replaced Arbre in my rotation.  This has been such a brilliant project to stitch.  I absolutely love the design and despite the saying I didn't have to do too much frogging!!!!!  I had put off doing this design because the pattern looked a bit complicated but upon closer inspection it was really simple, it just required a bit of attention because the backstitch lines were not very clearly marked.  However, when I went on the website just to look at my design in comparison with a photo I noticed that they have since altered the pattern, not in substance but they have just redone the backstitch lines so that they are easier to read.  I really love the finished design, it is one of my favourites.  Here is the finished piccy:
