I hope everyone rang in the new year in grand fashion. We did...on the sofa with the DH softly snoring beside me. Actually, he woke up about 11:45 and we watched the ball drop on Times Square. We were snug in our bed by 12:30 AM. Such party animals!
The 2nd Lieutenant and the lovely Jenna went to a friend's house for a little get together. They were home relatively early but I couldn't say for certain what time cause I didn't even hear them come in.
I have been blog surfing off and on today and I see many of you've posted your stitchy accomplishments. My 2009 accomplishments were very, very thin this year. Mainly I started many, many pieces and most aren't too far along. My usual MO.
The biggest accomplishment I had this year was to finish Bea.
I also finished Parson Brown, a lovely snowman from Notforgotten Farm.
I have been bad with buying new things though.
The 2009 Blackbird Designs Loose Feather Club:
Some Lizzie Kate, LHN, Prairie Schooler..oh too many to list! I feel like if I don't get what I want when I see it, it will be gone forever. I can thank all of you for that! I see what you are stitching and then I MUST have it too! Much to my husband's displeasure, I am sure. LOL!!! I tell him it's cheaper than therapy and when I am old and gray, as long as I have a magnifier, I am ALL SET!
I also have been drawn to more Primitive pieces, particularly for bowl fillers and little sachet pillows. Have you seen this designer, Country Rustic Primitives? She sells in e-patterns which I absolutely LOVE. They come quickly and I like that you can save them on your computer. How green!
Well, I should go for now, we've had a rather lazy day here. I hope you all are having a great start to the new year! See ya soon!
