Winter Storm

We are expecting a winter storm starting overnight tonight through Wednesday. If only I didn't live within 2 miles of where I work. I will be expected to be there for sure. I am hoping that everyone has hit the store today and stocked up so that those who can't make it can stay home and be safe. At least I am off on Tuesday and hope to miss some of it.

I have been stitching on Ink Circles Winter Mandala most of the month and have made great progress on it, but I am ready to be done with it and move on to the next project. I will include a picture of it, but it's really wrinkled from stitching.

I also have a scan of my first finish of the year. Again it's not that good a picture, but you get the idea.

Hope all of you out there in blog land stay safe and I hope that I get to watch the storm from inside and spend time stitching and reading.

First Finish of the New Year

I did manage to finish up LHN Winter Sampler this evening. Now it's on to see what I will work on next.
When I tried to upload a picture of my finish I couldn't get it to work, so I will have to try and post a picture of it at another time.
It's really fun seeing what all everyone is trying to accomplish this year with their 2011 stitching goals. I will be glad to just finish up a few of my UFO's and have some finishes this year.

Happy New Year

I really don't know why I have a blog since I never seem to post on it and when I do I get rude people who make rude comments on in. I don't pretend to be a writer, I just share my thoughts for those who want to read and if you aren't interested then don't read it!

Some of us in my LK Loopers group has decided to start off 2011 with a challenge. We have made a list of 15 UFO's that we are going to try to finish up this year. I know I probably won't stick to it once new things come along that I will want to stitch, but if I even get 5 of them done I will feel like I have accomplished something.

I started off with stitching on LHN Winter Sampler and at the rate I am going I should have it finished in the first week! Then it will be on to the next one. I also added to the list a project that I want to start as soon as my supplies arrive. Even though it's not a UFO, I want to spend time on it this year.

Hope all you out there in blog land have a healthy and happy 2011.
