DH & I actually managed to stay up until midnight last night to ring in the New Year. At 5 minutes past midnight I put the first stitches into my Jan 1st start Reading by Firefly Light a Randal Spangler piece by HAED.
This is a SAL with my friend Evalina and also part of a challenge on a couple of my yahoo groups Stitching Sisters & The Stitcherhood. For both I will be counting page finishes rather than a full finish.
I also finished a week in rotation on Train of Dreams. I really enjoy this one when it comes up in my rotation.
We had a great Christmas. Very quiet which was good for me. My son Matt & his girlfriend Becky(who I love to death) came on Christmas Eve. They had spent Thanksgiving here so had to go to her family for Christmas. Then on Christmas Day my daughter Sabrina & her husband JR & my other daughter Jessica & her boyfriend Nic (who I also love) came for dinner & gifts. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
I have joined the 2012 WIPocalypse so will be posting about that once a month. Also Daffycats TUSAL which is also supposed to be posted about once a month. I had joined last year but never could remember to take the picture. Hope to do better this year.
I collect Santa's & Santa cross stitch charts. I made out on both counts this year. My DH & DD got me a beautiful Clothtique Santa & my friend Lucy from another group I belong to One over Oners RAKd me with A Portrait of Father Xmas from HAED.
