End of the Year Wrap-Up

I am relieved that 2010 is almost over.  Moving across the ocean and the continent is difficult.  That was stressing for all of us.  Then my dad passed away in September.  Two life changing events within a couple of months has left me a little off-balance.  It seems to be taking a lot longer than usual to get settled here in DC.  So I started off my stitching year well, and it kind of fizzled at the end.
I didn't get very far on my goals for 2010 list.  I completed 2 out of 11.  Oh well.
  • 1. Nativity Shepherd 3
  • 2. Nativity Camel
  • 3. Eagle Sampler
  • 4. Cedar Hill- Faith Hope Love
  • 5. LK Family
  • 6. Home of the Brave- COMPLETED 1/22
  • 7. Masquerage- 1 page
  • 8. Eloquent Christmas
  • 9. LK Land That I Love- COMPLETED 1/14
  • 10. LK Time for God #141

Here is what the Nativity looks like now.

I participated in the TUSAL for a while this year.  I haven't posted a picture in quite a while, but I have been keeping all of my ORTs and thread snippets.  Here is the grand total for 2010.

For 2011, my goal is to get back into the stitching habit.  I am planning to work on my left-over WIPs to try to get most of them finished up.  I have to work on the nativity set to try to get it finished before my kids get married!  I think I am going to have lots of small quick things to work on too, since I still feel like I can't focus on a big complex project.  So those are my goals for 2011.  

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  May God bless you in many new ways for 2011.
