My one and only Biscornu and a Humbug

I just finished my Biscornu - I must say, although it turned out very nice, I did not enjoy stitching it very much. Wait - I enjoyed STITCHING it, I just did not enjoy the putting-it-together part. Too tedious for me.

This is a Humbug and I DID enjoy the entire process on this one. I have already begun looking for little Christmas ornie patterns to do for next Christmas.

My sister guilted me....

I have only done one cross-stitch for my sister in all these years, so when she asked me to do this one for her I said okay. Click on the picture to make it really big!

Yes, it will be gorgeous. The designer is Elizabeth de Lisle, and the whole thing came in like a gift bag rather than the usual plastic. The finished piece is supposed to be 19" x 30" - yikes! That's a BAP for me.

So here I go! I will post pictures as I progress. If I am not crazy now I will be...

Happy New Year to all!

The entire bunch (well, my immediate bunch at least) would like to wish you and yours a very happy and prosperous 2011!

There's, me, Yaya, in the red shirt on the right.

I do not make "New Year's resolutions" because then I feel really rotten when I don't meet the expectation, but I do try to "do better than last year" in most respects. One of the things on the top of the list is to give myself more time to stitch and crochet. My kids will tell you that I tend to give THEM more time than I should, so they are encouraging me to find more ME time. I am sure my DH will be happy to hear that, too!

I will spend the next few days looking for new projects. Maybe I will buy a couple of the ones on my Wish List... who knows...

Everyone have a wonderful day and let's get busy on 2011! May it be a fabulous year!
