I can not believe this year past so quickly. I know people say that all the time, but it was just super fast for me this year. I am very happy to say that the textbook is finished. The publisher was nice enough to send me a framed copy of the cover. Isn't it really nice?

I have been stitching like crazy. I finished Nicholas stocking and it is so pretty. I am happy to say that both my boys had handmade stockings for Christmas for the first time. So glad I only have 2 children...
I also finished this Tournicoton piece. Very festive...
I have just two more projects to complete in the next two days. One is this pretty LHN piece (Poinsettia House). I should finish it tonight. It was very fun to stitch and very quick. I also want to finish Barabara Anna's Winter Biscornu tomorrow.
Now, for the 2010 goals. I really need to get to stitching. These are just a few of the many patterns I have hoarded over the past few years. I stopped by Shakespeare's Peddler yesterday and got the fabric for the Holiday Game Board and Quaker Christmas. I also ordered the fabric for Quaker Virtues, RTR Sleepy Hollow and Cross Eyed Cricket Sleepy Hollow. Now I have 20 projects lined up ready for stitching. Some are easy, some are not so easy, but at least I have the materials to work on them. I know I will still purchase new patterns as they become available, so I'm not even going to try to say otherwise (no use ending the year as a blatant liar). But I will plan better this year and finish even more.
I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's Eve and Happy New Year to you all.
