Happy New Year's

Hi everyone,

I know it is a few days early but I am so excited to start a new year.  I am not saying 2012 was awful, I just want to commit myself into making some changes.  The first thing I did was color my hair from blonde to a Light Golden Brown.  It looks more red, but I am very happy with the results.  There are other things like losing weight that I will do this year.

In other news/changes, we purchased some furniture for the house.  We kept putting it off until we couldn't do it any more.  It was a whole week of chaos, order and mess.  My stitching stuff is in 3 different rooms now but at least I didn't have to get rid of any.  (shudder)  I have vowed to start stitching what I have so I can get more.  My husband already thinks I am a hoarder, no reason to give him more evidence. 

I am not going to lie, I did make a few small purchases for my stitchy Christmas present.  One of them was Barbara Ana Valentine Biscornu.  You know how much I love making these cushons and I love seasonal stitching so it was hard to resist.  I started it but don't want to show you just yet.

I have also finished part 5 of Novalee's Christmas 2012 SAL.  I wish I used a slightly darker fabric because you can't see the snow, but it is still pretty.

Well I guess this will probably be my last post for 2012.  I want to thank everyone who reads my blog and hope you have a fun and safe New Years celebration.
See ya next year,
Mary

A crochet finish and a WIP

Hi everyone,

I hope you are doing well.  I thought you all would get a big chuckle about my husband.  I have told him I have a blog but he really isn't interested in my passion for cross stitch.  Can you believe that?  Anyway, I had my blog up on the computer and he saw the finish of the biscornu I made my sister and he was amazed that I made that.  What else could I do but shake my head.

Well I don't normally crochet but sometimes I act on impulse.  I made this simple scarf for my youngest son.  He really loves it, he even wore it to school today. I am now making a blue scarf for my middle son.  It will be slightly different.  I am enjoying learning something new.

I have tackled the Novalee02 SAL.  I wish I could stitch faster but I hope to be done by February. 

Thanks for looking and have a great week.

2 new ornament finishes

Good evening everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well.  First and foremost I want to thank Miss. Linda from CrossN' My Stitches. She posted on the SSS and DDD facebook group about my blog.  I am so flattered and thankful.  I also want to thank everyone who follows my blog.  You are all very sweet. 

On a stitchy note, I just got done stitching this today and I did the finishing.  That is such a rare occurance. It is called Christmas Robin by The Victoria Sampler-Designs by Cathy Jean in the 2010 JCS ornament issue. 


In addition, I finished this as an ornament.  I have had it stitched for a few years but just put it together.  It is from Sanman Originals members board I think 2010.

Well thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend.
