The Stats are:
WIPs at start of year : 9
New Starts : 20
Finishes : 18
WIPs at end of Year : 11

I didn't make any specific stitching resolutions for 2008 because of Rosalin. Just to enjoy my stitching and to take every opportunity I had to stitch. This has worked so well for me I'm carrying it over into 2009.

Congratulations if you made it to the end of this post LOL I'd like to thank everyone who has read and commented on my blog this year your comments mean a lot to me. I'd like to wish you all a great 2009

That's a great achievement list - and Rosalin should be at the top!

I spotted you did the Drawn Thread's Birth Band - I'm seriously thinking about doing this for an old schoolfriend - how did you find it, and what threads did it call foe (ie lots of expensive ones or will DMC work?)

Happy New Year - and thanks for the ornie :)

Congratulations on all of your achievements. I love the etui, stunning.

And what an accomplishment that is Karoline :), such a lovely girl. I can't imagine where you found the time to even stitch, let alone do that gorgeous finishing.

Happy new year to you and your family and onto maybe even more stitching in 2009.
