It has been an amazng year.  I never stitched
And completed 65 pieces in one year.
I added 27 ornaments to my tree.
I gave away 12 cross stitch pieces
Only 2 were professionally framed.
63 pieces finished by me.
I did my first chatelaine
My first large mill hill kit
My first county fair
My first stitching retreat
Started my first heaven and earth design
Started my first Mirabilia
My first time stitching in a hoop,
In a frame, in a spring hoop and a qsnap
I stitch a lot in hand still.

I had some great trips and memories this year.
2018 will be amazing.

To all who viewed my blog I want
To wish you a merry Christmas and
A blessed new year.  Enjoy time with
Family and friends.  Reflect on
The good and positive things.  I
Appreciate each and every one of you.

Until next year,
Happy stitching🌻🌻🌻
