The eve of a new year

There's something about the end of one year and the start of a new one that causes one pause.  A time for thinking back over accomplishments and fails over the last year and what to do more of the same and what changes should be made. 

I'm glad I'm stitching again and finishing what I've started.  I'd like to not buy too many new charts and work up the ones I have and the kits I have.  My way of dealing with our falling over the fiscal cliff (or were we pushed??).  Of course as I say this I remember that Lizzie Kate is doing a series of Christmas ornaments.  Sight unseen they are a must have.  Then there's the candy cane perforated paper series my local xs shop is hosting.  Although I love candy canes (Melissa's needlepoint designs are too die for!) these are big and clumsy looking.  But I'll probably get them anyway. 

I have a ton of Shepherd's Bush kits that I want to stitch; some that I've started.  You'd think I'd at least do the Halloween ones since I like those so much. 

We'll see!!

Finished the eggnog freebie!!! FINALLY!

I haven't had the chance to scan it. Not only have I finally finished stitching the Eggnog freebie by Casey Buonaugurio, but I've stitched (AND FINISHED) three of them!  Hip hooray for me, if I do say so myself.  I've wanted to stitch it since 2006 when I first received the chart.  Six years....not too terribly bad. LOL  Here's more of her freebies.

I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping.  One more item to buy from and a gift card.  If I'm smart, I'll leave posting on the blog to go order my item!  See ya later.
