Good-bye 2009!! Hello 2010!!!

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?

(Hobbie's stocking I painted in 1991 and Nicholas's stocking)

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.

Your framed Textbook Cover is wonderful, that was very thoughtful of the publisher. But I have one thing to say about it...Anatomy and Physiology...ugh...the bane of my existence. LOL! That, along with Cell Biology and Organic Chemistry was my worst classes taken in college. Oh, I had to study so hard for those classes, science always came easily to me in general until those classes ;o)
