Last Post of 2010 ...

All ready for a quiet but festive New Years Eve. Ken and Lisa are coming over for games, hot tubbing, steak and lobster and a few margaritas *smile*
This pillow has been my last stitch since 2007 ...
My exchange to Joan arrived while she was away having Christmas with her family. I had such fun spoiling Joan through the year ... Here's what I sent her for our Winter round ...







Here's the pillow that I stitched and finished ... It's by Blackbird Design. I need to stitch this again for myself ... love the design!
I stitched and finished this pillow for KarenAZ ... the design is the same one KarenSC stitched for me! I'm so glad caused I love love love this design *smile*
I have had a wonderful 2010. My family is doing well ... I stitched more than I thought I would/could this year. I had so much fun in the exchanges I participated in and look forward to great exchanges in 2011. I have really enjoyed blogging this year and have met many wonderful bloggers/stitchers, both online and in person. Hope to meet more of you next year. I don't like setting New Year's resolutions, mainly because I can never keep them ! lol ... I do hope to stitch more this coming year, as well as take a better care of my health ... but isn't that what we all hope for each year?! lol ... I do hope you and your family have a wonderful 2011.

and I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for time with my family ...

Love your finishes. Your New Year ornament is really cute too and what a nice way to remember a new year. Do you use different colours each year?
