New Year New Things

So its a new year and as usual it takes me a while to get that first post up and running! that's not to say I haven't been busy, in fact I have been doing lots of stitching and have worked on five, yes five different projects over the past three weeks.
This is the first one I want to share, 2 tags for the new theme of A~Z over at Tag Tuesday
I'm going to use this new A~Z theme to build a little stitchery tag book, to remind me that there are other stitches out there other than the two or three favourite ones that I use, perhaps by doing this I will incorporate a better variety of stitches into my work,
this is last weeks tag
A for Algerian Eye stitch here it is used in the flowers
and this weeks
B for Bullion knots and Back stitch
The letter monograms are about an inch tall and from a vintage iron on transfer sheet
which my Mother gave me it was a free gift from the 'Woman' magazine, which reads
 "Woman" The National Home Weekly - NoW.360.A 
I have no idea how old it is but I'm looking forward to stitching through the alphabet. 
There is something quite satisfying about doing a little bit of neat and traditional stitching now and again.
more pictures of more stitching to follow....
Hope you are all starting the new year full of new things, plans and projects x

Thank you both, I do plan to ring them all together to make a book Jo I have finished the back with machine embroidered names of the stitches used.
