Happy New Year! ~ 2010 In Review

I hope you all had a wonderful Xmas filled with special moments of family and dear friends near by. Mine was with family, catching up, spent mostly outdoors since it was a lovely mild day.

The New Year has arrived in Australia and I shared the occasion with my sister, celebrating. We were both going to be on our own (which doesn't bother me) but decided to share the festivities together. A little bubbly and nibbles to help us enjoy the lead up to the New Year. We were going to watch When Harry Met Sally on dvd but it wasn't working properly, so watched the tv instead. I love watching this movie around New Year so it was a little disappointing we couldn't.

I thought I'd show you a collage of my year's work for 2010. Unfortunately I didn't get as much done during this year. My stitching mojo just seemed to vanish. Don't know how 2011 will go since I have other things going on at the moment (which I may tell you about at a later date). In all, I managed to get five projects completed.


EWE EYE & FRIENDS - Angel In Your Heart
SHEPHERD'S BUSH - Buzz Buzz Bee
WITH THY NEEDLE & THREAD - Be Kind & Be True
BLACKBIRD DESIGNS - Summer Iris
NOTFORGOTTEN FARM - Ah, 'Tis Spring

My favourite for the year would have to have been Be Kind & Be True. I did this one as a SAL with Melissa earlier in the year. I loved working on it and it was fun knowing Melissa was sharing the enjoyment of stitching this along with me.

Thank you all for stopping by during the past year, I know I've been a bit quiet over the months. Be assured I'm still thinking of you all and enjoy seeing what everyone's creating. You're all so very talented out there:)


HAPPY NEW YEAR ~ 2011!!!

I loved seeing your "Be Kind & Be True" - I might have to stitch that one myself (one day).

I'm sorry that you didn't get to watch your DVD to ring in the New Year - we're still a few hours away from the New Year, but as we spent the past couple of days traveling, I doubt I will be awake at midnight!

Happy New Year, Jane - I hope 2011 is filled with much happiness and stitching time for you!

I hope 2011 is filled with everything you're hoping for, but especially the return of your stitching mojo. I look forward to seeing what you get up to.

Dear Jane,

The finishes are all beautiful and so you! I know you are disappointed that you haven't felt like stitching for awhile. It will come back. I think the remedy is to do another SAL (ha ha). I not only promise not to go so fast, but I can't due to my neck/back situation. Anyway, think about it.

Happy New Year! (I'll email you before I head back to work.)

Happy New Year Jane. I know what you mean about the 'stitching mojo' as I went through the same thing for quite a while last year but it does come back eventually and I am back into my stitching again. Hope you will be too when the time is right.

How are you? Love seeing your accomplishments this year. Even though it hasn't been as productive as you would have liked, it's really a lot of stitching when you put it in a picture! Yea!
I've missed you so much. I've avoided the computer for 2 whole months, but I'm still working away at different things. I think a post is due tomorrow.
Hope your New Year is fabulous, and that you have some great projects to inspire you. :)
Hugs.

Jeanne said...
