I completed Angel of Hope just before Christmas....though I've held off in giving her as a gift until I finish Coral, so I can give them at the same time.
Isn't she purty? :)
Other than her finish, I haven't done any other stitching over the holidays. I did spend a good chunk of time yesterday cleaning up my floss disaster (I had 2-3 pieces I finished but never put the floss away). I like to stitch with my floss pre-cut and layed out for me, instead of pulling the floss from the floss cards. This way I can travel or sit in different places without having to lug around those plastic bins with all my floss cards in them. Here's a picture of my accomplished clean up:
I may have to buy a 4th bin, as it's starting to get tight in there!
Let's see...what else did I accomplish..... oh yes, I finally finished gridding up the first vertical section and first horizontal section of Cathedral. I can't decide if I should finish gridding up the entire piece or just start doing some stitching!! I also spent some time and got all the floss sorted and pre-cut, so everything is ready to go!
Sooooo...what did Santa bring everyone!? Santa brought me a brand new sewing machine!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! I already have some grand plans in my mind on what I want to create!! How will I ever accomplish all my stitchy goals AND my new sewing goals in one year? Here's a picture of my new baby:
A Princess is Born She's definitely getting added to my 2012 WIPocalypse list, which I'll need to shorten due to adding some sewing projects into my goals.
I survived the main holiday without gaining too many pounds....I'm back on track on my diet and I'm excited to kick off the new year with my weight-loss goals. What New Year resolutions is everyone making? Besides the diet goals, I'm resolving to clean up my old craft projects and get them done (to make room for new ones!). I have so much yarn that I definitely need to knit or crochet something!! Cleaning up my crafty stashes will probably mean some giveaways....I have so much stuff!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and that Santa spoiled each and every one of you!!
