Hello, 2012!!!

The New Year is already under way and so far off to a decent start.  The sickness that has plagued my family since Christmas finally seems to be going away, though the cough is still wanting to linger a bit.

I have finally started packing away the Christmas stuff, but, still have a few things left on that chore.

Stitching Goals for 2012

I can't say I have any lofty goals for 2012.  My main goal is to try & finish some WIPs I have.  So, hopefully I will finish one thing a month.  That sounds slightly reasonable.  We'll see how it goes.  :-)

Here is my RR that was finished up last year (please excuse wrinkles, I did not press it) by my friends Lynda & Clare:

The Hunt
Designer:  Homespun Samplar
Fabric: 28 ct monaco dyed in coffee
Threads: All Carrie's Creations
Grid - Navy Blues
Medallions in grid - Pacific Blue
Wreath - Sea Mist
Ribbon - Ocean Blue
Alphabet - Teal Mist
Diamonds between letters - Baja Blue
Initials and Year - Navy

There is one error in the piece...can any of you tell what it is?  I am trying to decide if I need to fix it or not.  Note:  It is not the date saying 2010, it was started at that point.

Year End Movie Thoughts:

Favorites of 2011:
  • Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part II
  • Captain America
  • Thor
  • The Help
  • X-Men: First Class
  • Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Honorable Mentions:
  • We Bought a Zoo
  • War Horse
  • Water for Elephants
  • The Lincoln Lawyer
  • Super 8
Worth Noting:
  • Larry Crowne
  • Footloose (better than I expected)
Least Favorite (by far!!!):
  • Friends with Benefits

I guess I will end for now.  Hope to possibly have a small finish to show you soon.  Take care!!!

Ohh what a beautiful RR finish!

I can't wait to see more of your finishes this year.

Happy New Year!

Your RR is pretty, wondering what color that is?
I see 2010 instead of 2011 but the RR must have started in 2010 so that's ok. If it's anything else, just leave it.
happy new year!
