My last finish of the year.

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 stitching­čî╗­čî╗­čî╗

When I watched your Flosstube I couldn't believe you had stitched 65 pieces, wow that is quite a feat. That's just about 5 a month! Your needles sure have been busy this year. I hope next year is just the same. Have loved watching and reading this year.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Carol said...

What a year you have had, Cindy! And the best is yet to come!! I am amazed at how much you have stitched this year--well done :)

For me, I've truly enjoyed watching you on Flosstube and that is high praise, because I normally don't care for most of the videos on Flosstube. They are too long, too off-topic, etc. but you do a fantastic job!! Always so cheery and positive--it is infectious!

Wishing you a joyful Christmas and every happiness in the new year, my friend!

They are all lovely!
Happy Christmas

What a successful stitching year you had, Cindy. So many projects, and particularly ornaments. Your needles must have been smoking, lol.
Great review post.
