Happy New Year!

Happy New Year's Eve eveyone!!  My last stitches are below ... I really enjoy finding a new font to stitch the year in ... this years color was WDW's Grapefruit ...

 and here's how it looks in it's pillow ...

The table is all ready for the party to begin ... but first we're going out to dinner with Ken and Lisa ... then home for some bubbly, games and dessert ...


Looking back on 2014 ... it's been a great year ... I turned 60 this year and had a couple of wonderful trips ... one with my best friends, who both turned 60 this year too 





 Then in September I took my fantasy vacation ... a 5 day trip to Paris to celebrate turning 60 with Lisa .... OMG what a trip!!!  of course you've seen a lot of those pictures!  lol



We also lost our beloved Chip ... miss you!!!



and I stitched!  Here's some of my finishes for 2014 ... I know a few are missing, but this is most of them ... 2014 Stitching

all in all it was a wonderful year with good friends and family ... I'm a bit sorry to see 2014 go ...


but I'm looking forward to what 2015 has in store for me ... Terry and I will celebrate our 40 anniversary in June 2015 ... we are planning a trip to London and Paris!!!  We are both soooo excited!  and of course there will be many other highlights to 2015 along the way.

I hope you're 2014 has been a good year for you and hoping that 2015 brings you health and happiness and lots of stitching!  Love you all!



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

I'm grateful for a good 2014 ...

I SO love that New Year's pillow! Clever idea! Considering you went to Paris, and work outside the home, you stitched quite a few projects! And you are going BACK to Paris, along with London! How totally exciting! If I put them together, I would have been married 40 years this year also... we are almost running along the same track! Happy 2015!

Looks like over all it was a good year, really envious of your Paris trip, and your upcoming anniversary one sounds like it will be lovely too. What a great finish for the New Years, the pillow was great :)
