Goodbye 2010!

It's time to say goodbye to 2010.  I was hoping for a good year, but, I can't overly say it has been one.  That's about all I will say about it.  Let's hope 2011 is much, much better.

I have not done much stitching this year and am not making any stitching resolutions for the new year.  Hopefully there will be more finishes in the new year.  My main goal of the new year is to just enjoy stitching again.

Here is my last finish of 2010:



Bedford Falls
by:  The Sampler Girl
Stitched on scrap of 28 ct unknown dyed fabric
Threads:  GAST Evergreen, Holly Berry, Nutmeg, Deep Sea & CC Cloud
Finished as a flat ornament and backed with shown fabric
Trimmed with a bell for Clarence  :-)

I sure hope 2011 is a better year for you.

I love the Bedfor Falls piece. I've never seen it. I live less then an hour from the town Bedford Falls is modeled after. Cool ornament.

Drat..... The Back-Up Plan is a disappointment? I currently have it from Netflix.

Happy New Year and hoping 2011 turns out to be a wonderful year for you and your family. Love the movie list and I still need to catch up on quite a few movies from 2010. This will definitely be a start....

Jinger, the ornament turned out great! I hope 2011 will be a good year too.

Very cute ornament! Hope this year is better for both of us. If you have lost your stitching mojo, go look through your stash, that always gets me inspired!
