The year's best achievement

Merry Christmas to all my blog reader friends.
I broke up from work yesterday and don't return until 4th January 2011.
Yesterday I picked up my "best achievement" of the year.... my Family Tree piece. Actually Stuart collected it for me and hung it on the wall ready for my return from work. I am so please with it - it looks stunning. It is hard to see the frame on the photo but it is carved in little patterns that suit the stitching! (hard to describe!) I also couldn't get a photo without the flash blurring a small part of it.



So what's in store for 2011..... well I need to make several cards first, which I intend to start over the holidays. I am stitching 2 shoe ABC cards for some of Becki's friends who have birthdays in early January. I am stitching a nice card for my best friend's birthday in February and a Golden Wedding card for my mom and dad at the end of February.
I also intend to finish Henry in 2011 and start the Nora Corbett Poppy Pixie (which is all ready to start !) Then anything else that takes my fancy.
Happy Christmas Stitching to all
Ginnie xx
