Happy New Year.

I want to wish everyone all the best for 2010 and thank you all for visiting my blog in 2009.
We had a lovely Christmas, lots of nice presents and lots of family get togethers. Sadly 2009 didn't end so well as dad was taken ill on Wednesday night and has spent New Year's Eve in hopsital. He has had very pain stomach pain and they think he has a blockage in his colon! We are off to visit him again later as he is still waiting for a scan but it doesn't look like he'll be out today either. So New Year's Eve was a strange, quiet affair with mom and we were all so tired as we'd had little sleep the night before. We are all hoping he is well and back on his feet soon!

One of my presents was the Poppy chart that has been on my wish list for ages!! So looking forward to doing this one! I also had a new storage box to sort my Anchor threads, an assortment of beads and a bead nabber!!

I have also had 3 small finishes over the Christmas holidays making my total for the year an amazing 70 !! Here they are -
This is for on top of a button box, the chart was in the Cross Stitcher magazine earlier in the year.

Here is my Lizzie Kate January Flip It, finished in time but not made up yet!! I am aiming to get it made into the little ornament over the weekend. Then I am all ready to start the February one.

Then lastly here is Robert Pattinson..... I really enjoyed doing him and must do the David Tennant one next especailly as it is his last Dr Who tonight :-(

My one main aim for 2010 is to finish my Family Tree, I have been working on it the past day or two and can see it getting closer to completion! In 2010 I also want to do the remaining Lizzie Kate months, and at least the Summer cushion to match the Spring one. My new project to start as soon as possible is a big Christmas picture. It is a Christmas Toy shop window that was in the World of Cross Stitching magazine just before Christmas. It states it'll take 80 hours.... so I want to start it in January and add it to my rota. I just need to get me some 16 hpi aida as I have none left!! Otherwise I will contiue with all my WIPs and probably do lots of other bits and bobs in between!

Anyway until next time, happy stitching.

Ginnie xx
