Last Post for 2008

It's hard to believe another year as gone by. The older I get the faster time seems to fly. The year has had it ups and downs but the ups out weigh the downs by far. I am so thankful for all that I have and that includes my great online friends that feel more like family. At this time when we all seem to reflect on our lives I want to thank each and every one of you for being a part of my life. I also want to thank you for all the wonderful comments you have left here on my blog.

Final Finish for 2008....
"January Stamp" by Lizzie Kate
stitched on 28count Lt Mocha Cashel
with WDW and GAST
I made it just under the wire and now the stitching for the Seasonal Shelf is done. I really like this little guy and will be so happy to look at him this month with the other snowmen that will make up the Snowman Mania in January.
Goals for 2009....

A lot of people have been posting their goals for 2009, what they plan on doing or in some cases not doing during the year. I have been thinking about this the past couple of days and decided if I set goals I would probably break them and I really don't want the stress. So I have only come up with 2 goals for the New Year.

1. Get my stitching area cleaned up and stash all organized. This will probably take me all year to do.

2. This is the most important one to me.....just to enjoy my stitching, both what I do for others and what I do for myself. I will not put any pressure on myself to get anything finished this year and will continue to be a serial starter (and at some point a serial finisher)

Thank you again for reading and commenting on my blog and I hope you have many hours of great stitching in the New Year.

Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching and Happy New Years 2009 glasses

Congratulations on another finish for 2008. Although I didn't have many finishes in 2008 I feel 2009 will be better belonging to this group and being encouraged to stitch. Happy New Year!!
