Last Finishes for 2011



Here are my last 2 finishes for the year. Both were done in time for this year's tree! :) But neither were on my list :( They were in the 2010 JCS Christmas ornament issue.

Now I'm trying to clear the decks for starting Ann Dale on Jan. 1. I didn't do a very good job with my finishing list in 2011. I only achieved 2 of 11. One of them, however, was Margery Dean, which I completed in 10 months. I really, really hoped to finish Shores of HRH, but am only through block 9 of 12. Maybe I need to learn how to make realistic lists!

How did you all fare on this crazy project?

congratulations Loretta - those are two cute ornaments. OH GEES - I looked back thru my 2011 Challenge list just now and I think I finished maybe one thing - of course it was quite a big finish - my Merrie Halloween rug. Some things on the list have not been seen since last winter when i made the list LOL - I did finish other things but they weren't even on that list. I hate lists and I hate goals - I should just be thankful for anything I am able to focus on and get finished. Happy New Year and welcome Ann Dale to the WIP pile! Mel

I didn't have a Challenge list for cross stitching, but on my queue for 2011 I added more than I knit! For 2012 I plan on framing all those finished cross-stitched pieces, about 6 of them, and knitting more for me. Only 13 of the 42 items I have knit were for me! That's a bad ratio.

Super-cute finishes!! Good luck with Ann Dale.

BTW, couldn't find your email address, but someone has offered to look at their LNS for the DMC flower thread for me. I'll post again if I'm still without. Thank you!!
