Can't believe it's been almost a month...

since I've blogged. The last month has just flown by. Another Christmas is over, and New Years is just around the corner. Why is it that time seems to go by soooo much faster the older you get. Well, I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Here are some of my finishes over the last month. The first is Nikki's LHN RR. I think it turned out really cute.
My proudest finished, granted it was many years in the making, but I finished stitching my kids stockings a couple of years ago, but I had never made them into stockings. I finished them into the stockings about 1 am Christmas morning. The kids didn't even know that I was doing them. They found them filled by Santa on Christmas morning.

Then my last finishes were over the last week. I don't know why I always do this to myself, but on the first day of Christmas week, I decided I wanted to make ornaments for my kids. So, I had each of them pick out an ornament from LK's Tiny Tidings for me to stitch. I had 2 out of 3 of them done on Christmas Eve, I just didn't have the 3rd, and I also didn't have them in the finished form. I promised though, so tonight I finished them into the finished form. The kids are thrilled, and are going to put them on the tree in a little while.

I'm going to try to post in another day or two, my goals for 2009. At least a couple of them anyway.

I hope everyone have a wonderfully blessed New Year. Thanks for checking in.
