Happy New Year – Gleðilegt ár

I hope you are all leaving the old year with joy in your heart, ready to embrace the new year. I have a good feeling about 2009, I like odd numbers 🙂

I wanted to make a list of what I finished in 2008. It is listed as design – designer – how finished. Unfinished means I haven’t done the finishing for the piece yet.

Looking back on this list, I am happy to see how many pieces I have actually done the finishing on. I didn’t realise this until now when I sat down and made the time to make this list. So I am quite happy with last years stitching, even though the last 2 months or so have been rather slow in the stitching department.

As for goals for 2009, there are few.

  1. Stay on the wagon!
  2. Stitch form my stash!
  3. Do more finishing!
  4. Start a HEAD piece!
  5. Do one ornament each month!

I think that’s it. I am also going to be a little selfish when it comes to my stitching. I am going to take part in some exchanges, do some random draws on my blog, send out some goodies to stitching friends and stuff, but on the whole I want to make the year 2009 a little more about me 🙂

Last but not least. Thank you all for visithing, for your sweet comments, support, e-mails, gifts, cards etc. Your friendship means so much to me! Thank you, from the botton of my heart!
