My New Years finishes and a couple of goals

I hope everyone had a Happy and Safe New Years. I was on call, but thankfully was never called into work. I was very grateful. On New Years Day, I decided to start something small to work on. So, I chose this freebie ornament called Rejoice by 4 My Boys. I really like her designs, but unfortunately, she retired because of her health. So, I started and finished this on the same day. I started this and finished this on the same day. I thought it was a good way to start the New Year. It's actually a replacement for an ornament that never arrived to my partner on the SBEBB ornament exchange. I was really bummed that she didn't receive the first ornament because I thought it turned out cute. But, I think this will end up being nice as well.

This is my next finish of the New Year. It's a LK piece called Think Winter. I used an Odd and End piece of fabric and DMC floss. It's hard to see the white and snowflakes in the picture.

Now for some goals for the New Year:

I really want to finish stitching some of my WIP/UFO's that have been in my to do basket for ages. You can see the list in the sidebar.

I'd also like to work on some more quilting projects.

Frame/finish items in my finished stitching bag. (If you only knew....)

Thanks for coming to visit. Since I finished the LK piece tonight, I'm going to work on something from my To Do basket for awhile.

Have a great night.

Hi from one Melissa to another!

Thanks for visiting my blog. It's my first time here. You're a very busy woman, what with 3 kids, being a RN and stitching too! (My SIL is a RN) I like both the designs - very cute!

Oh, what lovely finishes for the New Year Melissa! I'm sorry to hear your first ornament was lost... that's always so disheartening!
