It's Christmas Eve! It is much warmer here but the roads are treacherous. Black ice covered the Y parking lot this morning. Eek! I won't be able to walk tomorrow. I get the day off.
I printed off photos that I wanted to put in my little album.
I counted 44 things that I finished this year. Here are some of the photos I printed and cut out to put in the album.
The big things were several kits from Amy Mitten. The Quaker Bag, the Queen's Crown, Diligence Casket Keepsake as well as the World pin keep.
I reached my goal of finishing Mistress L's Band Sampler. I was surprised to see that I had finished about 5 of those Just Nan mice as well as a limited edition needle book.
I still have a couple mice to go. I got a few of the class projects that I took this year all done, like Betsy Morgan's Bristol Sampler Stitching Bag and Pioneer Girl's Etui and the Ode box bottom.
Getting the Owl and the Pussycat done was a major accomplishment. I made Evan a name pillow, a quilt, a fabric book, a Christmas stocking and a birth announcement. I made Claire her Elsa costume.
I finally put together my trinket box (for the very last time!).
I've made enough needle books and pin cushions to choke a horse.
I think it is good to have goals. To be able to make reasonable goals for next year, I needed to know where I am. I have some plans for next year. I'll tell you about those next week. In the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas.
