Happy New Year 2008!

Happy New Year everyone. May 2008 be a happy and prosperous year for you! I have some finishes to share - yes, I was busy stitching my little heart out last night.

Here's a piece that I started at the Hands to Work retreat in October. It's one of my two Blackbird Design classes. The piece is called Autumn Tulip Pin Keep. It's stitched on 30ct R&R Irish Creme with WDW and GAST threads. If I have time later today, I'm going to try to do the finishing on it.


I also finished my square in Judith's neighborhood. These houses were designed by Maryse and the patterns can be found on her blog. I chose to stitch the November house because my birthday is in November. Don't compare this photo with the previous one - I was color challenged (or maybe just pattern reading challenged?) when I first started stitching this piece - all is fixed now! Carol, this will be making its way to you soon - I'll send an email when it is posted.


A few more blog updates and then its off to the shower. We're having ham and cheesy potatoes for dinner today along with more hors du oeuvres as we watch the Rose Parade and the football games that will be on TV.

Wishing you a wonderful New Year Holiday - enjoy your time with family and friends (or however you choose to spend it!)

Luv the Hands to Work & neighborhood square. Job well done!!

I watched the parade & skipped the sporting event : ) I made a batch of Spanish Paella & everybody ate their fill.

Maybe after some 'pick-up / tidy-up' around the house, I'll have some stitching time.
