Welcome 2012!


Posted by Picasa
This is a wonderful way to start the new year.  Lazed in bed most of the morning with my wonderful husband, Lulu curled up at our feet, and watching movies.  I love my life!

Last night was a wonderful night of food, dancing and good company. My bum knee kept me off the dance floor more than I would have liked, but that's ok, it was nice to get out and spend time with friends...and SEE friends that I have seen in ages!!!  :)

So I played with the Picasa program a little bit and build a collage of all my finishes for 2011.  Quite a collection, not nearly as much as I would have liked to stitch,  but still lots.

Stitching goals for 2012...
finish CHS - Mary Margaret (SAL with Kati)
Start CHS - Suzanne (SAL with Kati)
LK's 6 fat snowmen (this will be a SAL with Kati and Veronica and whoever else wants to join us)
Prairie Schoolers - 12 days of Christmas
1 ornament a month
Hummingbirds and Fuchsias (this is actually a piece that Lulu's breeder asked if I would stitch for her, as this kit was given to her and she doesn't cross stitch b ut she really loved it, and I told her that I would be happy to stitch it up for her)
CHS - Fredrick and Fredrika
and tons and tons of other ones as well.  It's hard to say what designs will come and grab me by the ankles kicking and screaming.

Personal goals....
Lose weight!
Spend one stitching day a month with Kati & Edit :)
Continue to live in bliss with my gorgeous, amazing husband.
Learn to cook new things.
