2009's First Finish

Off to a good start for 2009. I was a real party animal last night. At the stroke of midnight, I was watching the New Year come in on TV while enjoying a ham sandwich, cup of coffee (I did spike it with a little Bailey's Irish Creme) and stitching on Harvey. Tracy was at work so I was alone safe at home.
"Heartfelt Harvey" by Imaginating
2008 JCS Ornament Issue
stitched on 28 count Opalecent Linen with DMC 321
Today I'm working on "Happiest of Holidays" and with any luck it will be finished before the end of the weekend. I will resume working on my SAL's starting on Sunday and fill in the other days of the week with some of my WIP's and a new start or two. I also plan on getting some things into their finished form this month.
I wish everyone well with their 2009 Goals and Stash Diets neither which I could attempt at this time, I just have no will power and soon will be time for my annual Birthday trip to the LNS and sure couldn't do that if I was on a diet could I. I wouldn't want to deprive my dear sweet enabler of a DH to joy of taking me shopping (believe me he really enjoys doing it)
In the next couple of days I will post a picture of the snowman Mania going on here. Tracy has really gone nuts getting me snowman tins. He went to WalFart today for just a bag of oranges and came home with two more bags of snowmen stuff (not that I'm complaining) and now I have to find spots for all of it. I'm so spoiled the fruit flies will be flying around my head soon <:o)
Back to watching the Monk marathon and stitching so....
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching and have a great weekend

Heartfelt Harvy looks great I love the Opalecent Linen but my old eyes could never work with it.

Happy New Year Rene! As a rule I do not like snowmen but yours looks so happy and friendly that almost makes me to re-check my feelings towards them.
