I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy New Year's!
Thank you all for taking the time during this past year to encourage me with my stitching and for taking the time to come by and see what I am up to by reading my blog. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
2015 turned out to be a pretty good stitching year for me. Lots of finishes, 22 of them! Most of them are smalls but that is ok with me because I love each and every piece I stitched. You can see them all listed here. The Wizard of Oz almost got finished but I still have to back stitch the Scarecrow. It should be finished by the weekend at the latest and it can be my first finish of 2016!

My second piece will be
Northern Expressions Needlework

I will also concentrate on finishing off at least six of my twelve UFOs; my very own UFO Challenge of sorts! Most of them just need small sections finished up and I don't know that I will totally finish each and every one of them but I am going to try! :)
Here is the list I HOPE to get out of the UFO basket...
