2013 in stitches

This may be all of them, it may not be all of them!  And of course, they are not in order as to finish dates. As I looked back to find the year's projects, I saw my Interview with a Stitcher and don't even remember doing that!  Now that's scary.  The funeral procession photos of the firefighters lost in that horrific incident made me stop and remember them.  I also looked at my Pinterest album of needlework and found samplers I would like to stitch or an antique I would love to re-create in my own way, and once again, forgot about.   How much I would be missing if not for technology!  But I would give it all up in exchange for a sharp mind and good memory. 
 
Best wishes to all of you for a very good 2014.
Thank you so much for taking time to visit with me.
Whether you have a blog or just read them, we all participate in some way and bring knowledge, experience, inspiration, encouragement, and support.
Thank you.

Happy New Year Marly.
I am not a "blogger" but I sure have enjoyed visiting yours..
You amaze me with your stitching talent, color coordination, wit, love of gardening and compassion for animals, except the woodpecker. ;o)
You have inspired me to start cross stitching again and I have finished most of your pears and will surely try to get to all of them this year.
I've gone "gung-ho" stitching the PS Santas..
Thank you for sharing your life experiences and talent in 2013.
Blessings in the new year to your and your family.

A blessed New Year, darling girl..
Your finishes are splendiferous

us off and running on the Pear/PS
track. Once the decorations are
stored, I am also buying some
boscs and doing the clove treatment...yours are grand.
