Well I have tallied up my finishes for the year and it comes down to a grand total of -
ME stitches = 18
Gifts = 5
Exchanges = 23
RAK's = 4
Nice change from last years tally, I stitched alot more for myself this year (5 last year) so that was a good improvement, my exchanges were down this year (30 last year) and I never completed any RAK's last year so that was also a difference there.
Well 2011 will be more ME stitching, I have already picked out some pieces I definately want to do this year. I will also continue with exchanges, however I think I will focus more on doing some private exchanges with stitchers throughout the year. If anyone is interested in doing an exchange with me, please let me know.
As we say goodbye to 2010 I look back and for us as a family it was a mixed year of happy and sad.
The good - my husband getting his new car, me getting a new job, completing some works around the house and meeting new friends.
The bad - losing my Uncle Ken, rains in the middle of the year the likes of which we have never seen here (flooding and hail damage to property and cars), Christmas Day storm and fence damage and a friends cancer scare.
Here's hoping 2011 brings with it great happiness and joy to you all. Thank you for visiting with me and being such lovely friends. I wish you all a Happy New Year!
Until next time, happy stitching
