Stitching review

Wishing everyone a good year in 2016.
 
Recap of the year's stitching which isn't much.  Going back through the 2015 posts, there were many photos of Sally Fiske progress, the longest I've ever worked on a project.  There were also cats, hostas, pink petunias, Carole updates, wild turkeys, the never ending kitchen remodel, letting go of my car, and turtle pee.  I wonder how our rescued turtle is doing. So here it is, a measly amount of finishes.  More smalls than usual and three were my freebies.  Hope to do better next year. 
 
I also wanted to show you a photo of my heart freebie done by Sue in the UK.  I love her finish.
 
 
 
Happy New Year!














And for the inquiries from readers (no-reply) that wanted information on the Merry Christmas banner in the header photo, it is Leisure Arts Christmas Gentlemen.  Many of you were so kind to share this information.  I had this leaflet until this past spring when I reduced stash and gave it away, not realizing the banner I want to stitch again was included!
 
Enjoy your weekend.
 
Thanks for your support, concern, friendship, and kind words.  You have no idea how important it is to this crabass.

Happy, happy new year, Marly. I hope this one will be enjoyable in everyway for you and your family.
I enjoy seeing all of your stitching. You have such a wide variety of pieces and that adds to the pleasure of decorating.
Take care, be well, keep stitching and "don't worry, be happy".

I haven't gotten around to your blog as much as I would have liked in the past year but I'm never disappointed when I do visit. You've taught me many things, made me laugh, made me cry, made me think - I always take away something. You had some very nice finishes in 2015! I will look forward to seeing what you do this year. Wishing you a very happy, healthy new year, Marly!

Marly it was fun seeing your review - that pony just immediately catches my eye. But what really makes me sigh are the primitive style bags you make. I really, really love those! blessings, marlene

Happy New Year, and great finishes!

Happy New Year Crabass.... (I can say that now because most people have already left their comments and won't see mine LOL....) Thanks...thanks a LOT...for making me feel totally inadequate and useless. Crimeny.... You call that a year of few finishes?? Yikes...If I summed up my entire life of projects, it wouldn't be much more than that. And...hmmmm...did I finish ANYTHING in 2015? Oh yes... a punch piece that I started in 2013....but "finish/FINISH" as in "completely done"? Hell no...just the punching part. Loving everything I see...and seriously...I thank you for posting this...not that it will inspire me to be more productive, but because I have been such a crummy blog follower, it sums things up nicely for me in the regard of your stitchings. ;o) Smiles & Crabby Hugs ~ Robin
