Getting Ready for 2009!


I began stitching on this Stacy Nash design during Christmas week and finished it up yesterday. I just took my time and didn't rush with it. I had thought that Wool and Flax would be my last finished stitch of 2008 but I was wrong! I hope to do a lot more holiday stitching in 2009!

We ran some errands on Friday and I picked up some much needed bird food so my feathered friends don't suffer any on these cold winter mornings! I told Harold it would be just my luck to run out of bird food and there would be a big ice storm! No worries now, though!

Between now and the end of the year, I am getting ready to start working on ornaments for next Christmas. I will share with you as I finish. I am planning to stitch up 5 before the final finish into ornaments.

I was able to get several more designs kitted up over the weekend. And I have some thread shopping to do. I also added some new links to the sidebar and not just stitchy links. Can you find them?

Even though I have enough designs in my stash to keep me busy for a good long while, I am still excited to see what the designers are going to surprise us with in 2009! I know there will be some I will *just have to have* and will bump some current charts to the back of the line!

Be sure to sign up for the PIF drawing on my previous post! Thank for stopping by!

I love it. Had hoped to get it stitched this year, but alas, time is running out. I still have high hopes though.

Great finish!

You certainly can't run out of bird seed! One year we had a huge ice/snow storm that had everything covered for days and days on end. My robins were desperately eating the shelled sunflower I put out~poor little guys!
