2010 Wrap-Up

My final finish for 2010:

Blackbird Designs Joyeux Noel book
Sweet Heart
Mystery linen
Called for GAST threads

This makes a total of 49 finishes for 2010! I had 31 finishes in 2009. I credit all the pin cushions and ornaments this year for the difference in numbers. :)

Here is an update on City Stitcher Adam & Eve sampler. I had put it aside for quite a while and when I picked it up again, I remembered why I put it down. I had to frog a big mistake before I could start stitching! Then, I went to add the border around it and guess what? Another mistake! Altogether I have fixed 3 mistakes and still managed to make a little progress. :) The fabric is more gold than the picture shows. But, check out how the date at the top (between the birds) has completely faded into the fabric color :( It says In the Year 1845. I see another frogging session and a color change in my future.




I am looking forward to the new year and wishing every one of you a healthy & prosperous 2011!

Congratulations on your final finish, Teresa, and your total of 49! I doubt if I even had half that many!! I'm so happy to have found your blog this year and I look forward to visiting in 2011...

Wow, Teresa!! You go girl! I love your finish. I want to stitch that, too, but am a bit daunted at the aspect of finishing it.

Love your City Stitcher A&E! That's on my short list to do. Sorry to hear about the frogging required. :P I have that with my BRD Peppermint Twist--I always find a new mistake each time I pick it up.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful 2011!
