Christmas Holidays update and 2008 stuff

Well I thought I had nothing to say. Haha that will be the day you say. Well my family would anyway. Then I remembered we have had Christmas and there are goals to talk about etc.

We had a lovely Christmas despite the heat. My family were good and kind to me. Mary Lyn made the salads and everyone pitched in so it was not too much work for me. That was good because I sort of could not have done it this christmas. I only had the most minimal decorations up this year. I got a Laptop bag from my family. It is a crumpler and apparently a good one. I like it anyway. I also got a cordless mouse. The little thingy that goes on the side so it works is super tiny and I shouldn't be able to break it off if I forget to take it out. Shouldn't be able to is the operative word. I got lots of other stuff too that I was more than happy with.

Last year's stitching was a good one for me. I didn't quite manage to finish as many as I wanted to due to being very fatigued with good old fibro. I did however start somewhere between 40 and 50 projects. I plan to do the same again this year. I finished 12 projects altogether. They are

Cloister Garden by Drawn Thread
Barnabee's Quest by Just Nan

These two were UFO's so I was well pleased with that

I also started and finished this year

Nita's Heart by Better, Homes and Gardens freebie
Never Too Much Stash freebie by 4 My Boys
French Country Rooster by JBW
French Counrty Cat by JBW
Squirrel by Carriage House Sampling
Needle In A Garden By Just Nan
Thanks a Bunch by Just Nan
Butterfly design freebie by My Aunts Attic
Another design freebie by My Aunts Attic
Freebie exclusive for CDU by Monasterium Designs
Stitcher's Needleroll and Scissor Fob by The Cats Whiskers

Woohoo there is 1 more than I remembered so I finished 13 projects all together. How good is that?

2008 stitching will bring definitely

A finish of St Sofia by Papillon Creations. I had hoped to finish it this year but just ran out of steam

I would also like to start another 40 to 50 projects again this year with another at least 12 projects to finish. More would be good. We will see.

I end this long and tortuous rambling by wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.

Congratulations on all your 2007 stitching finishes. I hope 2008 is even better.

Thanks Laura, I hope so too. I am determined to finish St Sofia quite soon. I have been stitching on it today.
