Final Blog Update for 2009!

Wow! Can you believe the year is already over? Seems like time has just flown by! I'm looking forward to 2010 and hope to make it the best year yet! Since it's the end of the year I thought I would put my last two stitchy finishes on here and begin the new year with new things. This little ghost is my section of a RR for one of the yahoo groups I belong to. The entire piece is just adorable and I hope my contribution makes it just as good.

My final finish for the year is this little bookmark. I don't really like the way it turned out, just seems so...plain. But I guess it'll do for now, it'll hold a place in a book and that's what counts I guess. It's just not one of my better accomplishments and I feel funny putting it here when I don't really like it..LOL!
I've been making plans for 2010 and going through things I need to finish. On last count I had almost 40 wips/ufo's! Not all are cross stitch, some are quilting and sewing, but that's still alot of unfinished things! I'm going to try to finish a few of those things in the coming year. As I was looking through things I pulled out this heart. It was a freebie for the Wiehenburg yahoo group last Valentines day. I had planned to make this into a toss pillow and even purchased all the fabric and stuffing and buttons I wanted to put on it....but never finished it. I'm making this my first goal for the new have it done by Valentine's day and made into a pillow for the holiday. I *think* I can do it....if I don't get distracted by all the other goodies just waiting to be picked up. LOL

I promised myself I would finish at least one ufo before starting something else and I have one fairly big project that I want to do as a birthday gift for my mom in July so I guess that means I better hurry up and get this one done! I've got one bookmark to do, one RR piece that should arrive sometime in January and this heart to start the new year off with...not too shabby. Add in the monthly "cube" finishes I want to do this year and I think I'll have a full month for January projects.
Hope everyone has a wonderful new year! Hugs to all!


  1. Happy New Year to you, dear friend!

  2. Nice stitching and good luck!

  3. Mary, a lovely start! I joined the group too late to get this feebie. Shame! Will be watching your progress.
    I live in LaPine, about 30 miles S of Bend. Any chance you'd like to get together? Maybe ride to Vicki's in Feb? It's loads of fun!
