December Goals Finished

 I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  It was very quite here. We did manage to speak with DD who is in the UK and DS & wife who were in Melbourne.

I woke to a lovely email to tell me that I had won the weekly competition on  Prarrie Grove Peddler Blog . I have wanted to do a candle mat and now I will have the opportunity to do one.   Cheryl runs a weekly competition so pop over to her Blog to see what the prize is this week.

I didn't think I would make the cut with December goals but I did with 4 days to go - oop not quite I just remembered that I was going to start a new piece after page 4 of Crabby Crush QS - I changed my mind and decided I wanted to finish off Crabby Crush before starting the new one.
So here are 2 pictures of my stitching. 
 First - The Library © LHN
I am really pleased with how this is coming together.  It is nice to be able to stitch blocks of colour after confetti stitching with Crabby Crush and Leaf.
Second - Crabby Crush QS © Head
artwork - Hannah Lynn

I just love the richness of the colours of this one.  I only have one more full page and the rest are all part pages - that is why I decided to continue stitching on her.  See the lovely Crab claw appearing - though I friend Kim keeps telling me that for a Lobster to be that colour he is aheeemm not alive - I now cannot stitch this without laughing.

We are finally getting some decent rain - it was always just missing us and even though we only just caught the sides of it it has been enough to give the ground a good soaking.

Are you all gearing up for a big finish to the Year 2009.  I cannot believe that in a few days it will be 2010.  I am considering what goals I will set for the Year 2010. So look out for the post later with more stitching pictures and some goals.

May God Bless you all till next time.

Great progress! I've been working on my project and just getting frustrated. I have so much to learn. I guess I'll learn by mistakes. rip rip rip

Great progress on both, Annette! I am planning on starting "The Library" in 2010, too so I love seeing yours come to life...

Happy New Year to you and your entire family!

What lovely WIP's you have! I can't wait to hear about your 2010 goals. I went through my stitching basket yesterday and was surprised at how many things I should be working on!! :-) I'd love to hear how you space things out when you're working on more than one project. Do they have time slots during the day, or do you work on one for the first week of the month and then switch? I'd love to get more done this year!!

Great progress on both, Annette!

The Library is looking wonderful Annette and so is Crabby Crush - it looks velvety. Congratulations on achieving your goals in 2009. Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2010 with plenty of stitching time.

Crabby Crush is looking amazing. The colors are so bright and rich. You are inspiring me to pull out one of my HAED WIPs.
