Happy New Year 2010!



This year has flown! Here's what I finished in 2009:


A larger view of the slideshow can be seen here.

On January 1, 2009, I wrote some stitching & blogging goals for the year:
  1. Enjoy my stitching. Done!
  2. Keep blogging. Done!
  3. Try to finish a few WIPs, and end the year with fewer than I have now. (Unfortunately, I can't get an accurate count now, so I'll just have to count finishes vs. starts for the year!) Well, I finished 5 started in previous years, and only have 2 started and not finished for this year, so I guess that's progress!
  4. Start the whitework Frances Cheyney sampler from The Essamplaire. (This will be stitched as a SAL with a friend, and I had hoped to start it today, but it can wait.) Ummm.... No.
I'm hoping to get a bit more stitching done this upcoming year. My goals for 2010 (continuing a few from this past year) are:
  1. Enjoy my stitching.
  2. Keep blogging. (Actually, I have a few plans for the blog, but I'll go over these in a separate post in the next week or so.)
  3. Continue decreasing the WIP count! 
  4. Stitch Erin's First Christmas ornament and get it finished. (And maybe do one for the second year, too!)
  5. Finish my master craftsman piece on time.
  6. Start something by Jean Hilton.
  7. Start something by Gay Ann Rogers.
I'll stop now before I get myself into trouble. Enjoy 2010, everyone!

You forgot to list your main accomplishment for 2009 -- ERIN!

Getting all that stitching done too makes me a tad envious of your prowess.
