Time for an Update....

Here we are half-way through January, before we know it the first month of 2012 will be history.  Time is rushing by so quickly!  I hope that everyone has had a good start to the new year and been able to keep those resolutions, if you made any.  Hopefully you have been getting in some quality stitching time too!

Welcome to my new followers!  Thank you for taking an interest in my blog!  Thank you to all those that take the time to comment on my posts also.  It is so nice to hear from you and I love reading your comments! 

I decided to join the Crazy January Challenge for 2012 even though I only completed 9 starts in 2011.  This year my project choices are mostly small so I think I can complete all my projects this year plus finish my 2011 projects.  That is what I am working toward anyway! 

Mostly this year's projects are Christmas ornaments which I can stitch and finish to use as gifts for presents come Christmas 2012.  The only problem I am having with this is I need want to keep the ornaments all to myself so I might have to stitch two of each so I can give one to myself too!  My tree is already more than full of handmade ornaments so I don't know what I would do with so many new ones but wants don't have to make sense, they are just wants!  We shall see what the year brings in regards to stitching duplicate ornaments.

I am not going to show you all of my 15 starts, actually 16 starts, this post but will spread them out over a couple more posts.  In my sidebar you can see the list of my CJC projects for 2012 and the 2011 projects left to finish.

Homespun Elegance
"Festive Redbird"

Homespun Elegance
"Blessings Heart"

Little House Needleworks
"Snow in Love"

Little House Needleworks
"Winter Forest"

Little House Needleworks
"Frosty Flakes"

Festive Redbird only needs the Colonial Knot berries stitched and it will be finished but I was too tired the night I was working on it to attempt those Colonial Knots.  Frosty Flakes worked up very fast, as did Blessings Heart and won't take long to complete. Look for finishes on these three soon!

See you soon!!

Blessings and Happy Stitching!
