Let the people choose-January-New Starts

It's the first Saturday of January(it was yesterday) and also of the year. I am here to write about my New Starts in Let the people choose, Jo's of Serendipitous stitching new brainchild.
But before I do that I would like to wish all of my followers, readers, friends and relatives, fellow stitchers and crafters or not, all the best for the new year 2019. Let's hope it is better than the previous ones.

As the title says it all Let the people choose theme this month is about new starts. So what am I going to start stitching this year? I made a quick decision.
First of all I am going to stitch one small thing every month.These are all little freebies, kits I have received with magazines I had bought in the past or gifts from friends who know that I love stitching. So here there are 12 smalls.
There are three bookmarks (one from Scotland, two from Canada), a magazine freebie to make a stitched cube and a stitched little cottage,a freebie beadwork card, a little butterfly picture, a little flower picture in a frame, a pincushion, two needle cases and a florist's card. I don't know which one I will start first, probably the needle cases.
Then come the New Starts from my kits.
 The kitchen bell pull and the cardinal picture were gifts from my friend Marabeth and the third one I had bought to make for our wedding anniversary. It is printed fabric but you stitch on it too.
Of course I will make my craftpod which is the winter box but since I have a yearly subscription I still have two more to come in the year.
Of course I still have my wips and I want to show those too.
I will start with the Karaghiozis as I have to finish that one too. I am planning to continue stitching the flower monthly bookmarks each one in its month. I have already finished the first three so this wip will start in April and it will probably finish after many years as I usually get bored after making a couple of bookmarks. The seasons embroidery piece I will continue later as I have only Spring and Summer to stitch. And the blue and white one will go little by little as I am in no hurry to finish it.
Of course I know I will have more things to stitch in between like the Let the people choose theme every month and of course I want to start my Christmas stitching early this year.
I also want to make some sea glass felted stones for friends.
Finally I have a wishful thinking list of items I would like to start stitching one day! LOL!
Well that's all, and I hope I will manage to finish some of all those things I want to accomplish.
Have a great crafty and stitching year!

Εύχομαι να τα καταφέρεις.
Να είσαι καλά και φιλάκια πολλά.

Thanks for taking part in the People's Choice this month. I love your idea of doing a small cover kit each month. I might have to steal that for next year! I do have rather a lot of them...

The Craftpod looks good, I will look forward to seeing what you make from that this time.

A lot of lovely projects here Ariadne.

It's great that you're working through those cover kits! It seems people get a pile of them really fast haha. G'luck with your new starts! I think the little cottage looks especially cute.
