Looking over

Well "cough cough" excuse me while I dust off the site.  50 hr work weeks are not conducive to blogging even though I did get stitching in.
I remembered I made a little book of what I wanted to get done and what I wanted to start so just leafing through.
#1. Computer Dragon (maniacal laugh) yeah lets hope I get that done before my 10th anny.  I have to do well on it this year because it's 8 1/2 right now and June will be 9 so I have a ways to go.
#2. Rivalry - nope 3rd Christmas or so since I bought that piece and I don't know when the last time I picked it up was.  I dumped it out of its bag for another project.
#3 - #5 were the Dolly Mama's these I did finish!  Well the stitching they're still in a pile looking for something to finish them with.
#6. Mardi Gras motifis - I actually did make magnets
#7. Coasters - Wine nope never even got their bag out.
#8. Welcome - Wine I know I stitched some on this but not a lot
#9 Dragon - Wintzler is what I think it says.  No that kit hasn't come out either.
#10. Winter snowman - nope not out of its bag either!
So what did I do all year?  Well I did the little USA heart and I started the big London Project and the eyeglass case, and a lot of love quilt squares for children!  So at least someone gets to see and use my stitching rather then it be in a pile for me!
Lets see if I started the projects I said I was going to start.
#1. Autumn Snowman, never found this mag and pattern.  I swore I had it.
#2. Monopoly.  I did start this but Monday stitching fell by the wayside.
#3. Ferret - yes!  And I was debating on how to put name or something on it.  Also, looking for another ferret pattern because just yesterday I lost my Ponder and now I should do a piece for him.  I don't want to stitch the same thing but something about the same size for a white/gray ferret.
#4. London - Did a good start and got just over a page done.  My Mom bought me a pattern that I will use for the Winter Olympics in 2014
#5. Ornaments Aunts - uh no and #6 Uncles no too.
#7 Tree of Stitches - the threads are pulled still but never asked for the pattern though its clogged up my gmail with following the thread.  Ah I need to get in there and tidy up.  I still like that pattern though.
#8. Wedding Sampler - nope you'd think my project for my 10 year Anny should be that wouldn't you? :p
#9. Apron's - no this still has thread that I bought for it what a Thanksgiving ago?  One day I will get all of Donna's stitchy presents that she gives me done!
#10. Wine Country - no I think this was the big kit she got for me.  But I did start the eyeglass case in needlepoint.  I have to do back stitching and put the thing together.  Lets see if I get this done before our party next week :p

I agree that a lot of stuff on that list needs to be done.  But then I'll go to Love Quilts and see an adorable theme and have to stitch!  I finished a Noah's Ark and even though it didn't go to the intended child because I couldn't stitch fast enough (and I worked on London during the Olympics) It did go to a child who will love it.  So did several squares this year.  I think it's the most I've ever done in a year for Love Quilts.
I've also bought a great many magazines and more patterns!  We went to Cincinatti on our way back home from Thanksgiving and I stopped in an LNS and bought my letter M by Mirabella.  I'm changing out some of the colors because I don't like the greens in my M.
I think this year is going to be an owly year.  I found lots of cute owl patterns in magazines and on pintrest!  I think my X-stitch board has sable patterns on it already!

Merry Christmas to everyone and be thankful that you survived the Mayan Apocalypse.
