The Last Day of 2010...........Really?

Happy End of 2010 my Dear Friends,

It seems so hard to believe that tomorrow will bring a new year.  My, how time flies. 
I wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2011.

To wrap up 2010 I have a few things to share with you. 

Christmas at our house was very quiet and enjoyable.  We went to my sister's house on Christmas day.  I was showered with lots of stitchy goodness.  My sisters and niece gave me all the patterns you see pictured below.  How spoiled am I?


My sister also gave this great Ott Lite. 
I've wanted one for a while and am tickled pink to have it. 
(My sisters are in the picture next to the Ott Lite...I'm in the middle)

Next up is this great package that arrived in the mail.  Tricia at The Stamper's Stitches had a giveaway to celebrate the beginning of her stitching blog.  I was so delighted to win this awesome giveaway.  It included LHN "Tree of Life", Threads and Linen.  I think I know exactly who I'm going to stitch this for.  Thank you so much Tricia!

Am I Crazy?..............Well.....Yes!

Here are the patterns I've picked for the Crazy 2011 Challenge


I have decided that I'm going to have to modify the Challenge a bit.  The challenge was to pick 15 patterns.  On the 1st day of January start one of the patterns and continue to start a new pattern every day for the first 15 days of January.  On January 16th you will have 15 WIPs. 

I can't do it.....I really think that having that many WIPs would drive me crazy.  I generally try to finish one before moving on to another.  Does that sound OCD to you?  ;-) 
So, my plan is to put them in my stitching basket beside my chair and pull them when I'm ready to start a new project.

And last but not least.....

My last finish of 2010.  One more ornament for my tree. 
"Happy Skater"
Little House Needleworks
Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue 2010

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  It has been a great year and I've enjoyed getting to know you all.  I appreciate the time you take to read and comment on my ramblings.  Cross stitch is so enjoyable for me and I love sharing it with you.

We are off to a friend's house later this evening to ring in the new year.  I hope that however you spend your evening that it is enjoyable and safe.

Happy New Year,
