December and year end

December 31, 2019

Happy almost New Year!!

The year has gone by so fast and work was insanely busy. My energies have been spent on holiday baking and decorating, when I wasn't working overtime at work.  As a result, I have been exhausted and finally feel like I'm human again.  Just in time for  the new year to start.

I only had two starts this month, but I did finish a few things I started earlier.

This will be a sweet 16 card for my niece.  I asked her what her favorite color was and she said white so I used a bunch of pastels.  First, I will give her a white card that I stamp "Happy Birthday" in white ink and use a white gel pen to sign.  Then I will give her the one I finish using the below.  Yes, I'm a prankster.

Thank I finished the below.  The first three were UFO's from 2016 and I had worked on earlier in the year. I had finished the stitching, but needed to add the beads and buttons.  The last one is also a UFO from 2016 and I "started" it  (and finished) it in December. 



And here's the four. There are two more to make, which I will finish in 2020, and then turn them into a banner.

I have finished 129 out of 153 starts. I don't think I'll do a " start a day" next year.  Instead, I want to focus on finishing UFO's on some large projects and I have a couple of large projects I want to start and finish.  But, I'm a pre-menopausal red-headed women  and am likely to change my mind...

Hope 2019 was good to you and 2020 is even better.



  1. You had a fantastic year of stitching and finishing, considering how busy work was for you. I hope you have a great 2020, both stitchy-wise and personally. :)

  2. That banner will be spectacular! Those pieces have so much detail, love them. 129!!! wowser! I am impressed. Happy New Year, wishing you the best and lots of floss and thread.

  3. That is a a lot of finishes you had there! The banner is looking great and I look forward to seeing it finished. I love the idea you are going to do for your niece's birthday card; so very clever you are! Hapy New Year!!
