Happy New Year!

The end of the year was a good for stitching!  My family and I went to visit my Mom and Dad and sister in Co for Christmas and I had a full week of being able to sit around on the couch and stitch all I want!  I loved it and even managed to finish two more pieces.
February Stamp by Lizzie Kate
Mill Hill bead kit
I also finished DD yearly ornament BEFORE Christmas for a change!
Bird House from Better Homes and Garden Christmas Cross Stitch book.
A nice way to finish out the year.  

In other news, it is the busy time of year for DD gymnastics.  Her competition season gets on the way this coming weekend with a small meet in Twin Falls.  Then it is off to Las Vegas for a huge meet, then to Boise for two more meets.  Then we have a small break before two meets in Salt Lake City and then State in Northern Idaho.  She loves it and does well but we are home a total of three weekends from now until the end of March.  Come back to see how she does.  She should have a wonderful year.


  1. Those are wonderful the MH and birdhouse especially! Kudos to your DD on her gymnastic achievements already. Here's to a good year!

  2. Beautiful ornaments! Especially love Mill Hill and the birdhouse.

  3. Lovely finishes and love the bird house.


  4. When do you come to Las Vegas? Have you been to Stitchers Paradise here? Where will you be staying? On or off the Strip? I love your DD's Christmas ornament and the Birdhouse ornament also.

    1. We will be in Vegas Jan 18-20. We are staying at the South Point Casino. We won't have a car so I am not sure I will be able to get to the stitch shop but I hear is it a really nice store!

  5. Beautiful finishes especially the birdhouse

  6. Beautiful finishes. Good luck with her meets. Hope to see you back in blogland soon.

  7. Cute finishes! Congrats! Good luck with the meets!

  8. These are lovely finishes - the birdhouse looks especially challenging for someone like me. LOL Good luck to your DD in the competitions.
