Goals Achieved

I set 3 goals for myself to achieve this week and I am happy to announce I made it. Yep all three goals acheived.

Goal 1.....
"Naughty" ornament by Mill Hill
Stitched on Perforated Paper with DMC and beads
I finished "Naughty" for myself to go with "Nice" I did for Tracy. I really love these Mill Hill kits and plan on doing lots more of them in the coming year.
Goal 2....
"Sugar Plum Fairy" Stocking
Kit by Bucillia
Yes "Sugar" and her friends are finally finished (even lined the stocking) and now ready to take her trip to Arkansas. This really was a joy and challange to do. I now have another year to do stockings for the boys and know I will enjoy doing theirs just as much.
Goal 3.....
My third goal was to finally get the tree up and some decorating done. With the help of Tracy our tiny apartment is begining to look a lot like Christmas. I love getting out all my stitched ornies and putting them on the tree. As I take each one out of the box I remember who stitched it for me in a exchange or what I was doing with the ones I stitched. In another year I should have enough to have the tree totally done in just stitched ornies. I don't know if you can see all the "No Sew" cubes under the tree but they will be our packages until we shop for gifts at the last minute. We usually do our shopping for each other on the 22nd or 23rd so under the tree would be bare until then.




This little tree is one that Nancy R gave to me when she and her bf moved. It is still a work in progress but will be up all year and decorated to match my Seasonal Shelf.



We can have Christmas here without the froggies hehehe......This is our coffee table and the frogs on it sing and dance.


That is what I did this week and now to stitch some more snowmen so the little tree can be decorated with them in January.
Hope everyone is having a stress free Holiday Season and keeping safe and warm.
Until Next Time.....Merry Christmas and Happy Stitching

Glad you got your goals met, the stocking is fantastic, again something I would never even try. Tree looks great as well, love all the stitched ornies, have a couple on our tree, but the little one plays with them so they are not pristine anymore. SIGH

Congrats on achieving all your goals. The stocking looks wonderful. It will be cherished for years to come :) Your ornie turned out great, too. Your apt looks quite festive with all your decorations.

Congrats on meeting your goals! The no sew cubes are a great idea for under the tree! You're really taking the seasonal shelf to another level now! Love the stocking. I'm a bad grandma, because I didn't get mine done for this Christmas.
