Happy New Year!!!

Wow, two posts in one week!  :)

I just put the stitches in one final ornament and finish for 2014...  this is from Little By Little.. Sleigh Bird...



Looking back on 2014 I was surprised at how many finishes I have accomplished!  While not all were started in 2014 these were all done in the year...... 


And already I have BIG plans for the New Year too!  Lots of SALs to join in!  
There are two for the Scarlet Letter.... Mary Gail...still not sure about the fabric choice lol - either Peanut Butter Pie YUM! :) or PTP Wren, and Jenny Bean with Lakeside Linen Tarnished Silver.  


And I will make a second attempt at Hannah Pepper!  I am going with 36 ct cream.  There will be a lot of encouragement with this SAL and the dedicated facebook group.  


And yet a fourth!  Ann Tarbox is another facebook SAL..... for this one I am trying out 35ct cream Floba fabric.  


So it looks like is should be a fun stitch-y year with like-minded stitch-y friends!!  

I hope you are having a fun time ringing in the New Year.  I am sitting cozy at home with my Gigi... here she is sitting on her Christmas monkey lol.  We are watching Rockin' New Years Eve and the Times Square Ball drop.  Tradition.  :)  


A toast to you ALL for a Healthy and Happy New Year filled with happiness and peace and lots of stitching!!  xxxxx  Krista

You will certainly be busy this year with all the new projects line up!1 Here's hoping the get off to a great start.

Such a lot of great finishes last year, your wrap up is pure eye candy. And your new plans are too. These SALs are very tempting, aren't they? If I were on FB I would join many of them because they are also very encouraging but my stitching plans are already numerous enough, lol. I wish you luck with all your wonderful new samplers.
Happy New Year!

Love your last ornament finish for 2014. Where do you get your pretty ribbons you have used for your ornaments? You have some fabulous projects in the works for 2015.

Happy New Year, Krista!

Happy New Year Krista!! Wow! You've accomplished a lot this year...particularly in the way of samplers. SDW is just so stunning and I'm amazed how quickly you finished it. Love your new projects that you chose. It's been fun to see everyone's progress on Mary Gail on FB. Hugs to you!

Gorgeous finishes from last year. All but one feature alphabets or lettering. I would guess you are a fan like me?

Great choices for this year too.
