Going to be a New Year

I promise next year will be a good year for blogging! Yeah we'll see about that ;)
I will have to post every new moon for TUSAL
I need to get my last pic of Jim up. I stopped posting around what June July? He looks to be a pretty good rectangular rainbow tribble but I think George from last year is a little bit bigger. I'm still debating on creating another rectangular rainbow tribble or filling an ornament that I got from Hobby Lobby for decoration next year.

I have signed up to do Measi's WIPocalypse
So during a break on my hockey game I found a little altered book that a friend had made me and I listed on each page 10 WIP's (works in progress)
1. Computer Dragon
2. Rivalry
3. Best Stressed - Dolly Mama
4. Merry Catmas - Dolly Mama
5. Have to Wrap - Dolly Mama
6. Mardi Gras Motif's (a 'feb' stitch from last year)
7. Wine Coasters (I don't even want to think about when I started these)
8. Welcome Friends
9. Dragon Wintzler (sp?) (also a feb stitch from last year)
10. Winter Snowman Bell Pull

When I got to Winter Snowman which was a bell pull series in Cross Stitch and Needlework 2010 that reminded me somewhere was the mag for Autumn that I didn't start. So I have 10 things I have to start this year too. It was almost 9 because I didn't have enough pages but I did front and back of the ornaments. Which should technically be WIP's because I did make them for my Mom, Dad, Granny and I did finish friend 2, and an aunt and uncle. The Aunt and Uncle I think need beads and finishing. One of the friends one I washed and the overdye ran so it's not good and the other friend that I made it for fell off the face of the earth. I guess if I ever see her or hear from her she'll get one but I've started communicating some more with my other friend so maybe I'll redo hers :p
Anyhoooo Here is the 10 things I want to start this year.

1. Autumn Snowman (if anyone has this it was Sept 2010 if I can't find my mag!)
2. Monopoly (remind me to send money I don't think I ever did!)
3. Ferret
4. London (to be Started May 18th when they start the marathon)
5. Ornaments Aunts
6. Ornaments Uncles
7. Tree of Stitches (get back on that site and find out how much it is!)
8. Wedding Sampler (there's a mag image somewhere I need to dig out)
9. Wine Apron
10. Wine Country

9 and 10 were my Christmas presents from my friend. I don't think the kit is called that but it's wine themed and last year she got me the apron and I just bought the thread over Thanksgiving. Everything else I pretty much have thread for, might need to get more fabric but I won't buy any new patterns! Now the hard part will not be dling free ones! London is a freebie pattern I will search for the link. I don't think I have anything for it yet. Ok that appears to be it I think I printed off Tower Bridge and one other one but I don't know which I will stitch yet.

Should I be crazy and do my own SAL (stitch a long) in May for the Olympics? Surely someone else out there has one all ready? Well I didn't find a SAL but I did find some patterns.

Ok this blog post is long enough. I'm going to take a picture of Jim and all the Christmas Decorations. I work from 8-4:30 tomorrow (cross your fingers for Early Release! No one call your cell service provider tomorrow :p ) so when I get home I hope to craft. My desire is to craft something every day. Even if it's just putting 10 stitches in a project.
