Final Post for 2009

Su has invited everyone to join her end of the year "party" and so I thought I would join in the fun. Please visit Su's blog for a list of other stitchers who are participating!

Much of my stitching in 2009 was for exchanges; I keep trying to cut back, but they are so darn much fun that I can't help myself! We'll see if I can resist some of the temptation in 2010. It's such a joy to connect with others around the world who share a passion for needlework!

Here are some of my other finishes in 2009. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

Beautiful finishes, Cathy. Your work is indeed an inspiration. I made a promise to myself to set more time aside to do more x-stitching in 2010.

All the best to you and yours in 2010.

Oooo, what a stitchy 2009 you had! Beautiful stitching, Cathy, congratulations!

Wishing you a stitchy 2010 as well!

Suzanne said...

Lovely finishes for the year! I look forward to seeing what you stitch in 2010.

Happy New Year!

Brigitte said...

So many lovely finishes. There isn't a single one that I wouldn't stitch myself. Congratulations!
What you say about exchnages is exactly how I feel about them. I cut back on the number tremendously (from over 20 to 8) and felt completely happy with it. So I made time for my own stitching and stayed in touch with many stitchers around the world, which I love.
Wishing you and your family all the best for 2010.
