2010 in knitting and stitching

I always like to end my year to look back and go over the crafts I have done over the past 12 months. This year was a new low in stitching for me, but a record year in knitting. I will start with the stitching. I only stitched two projects this year!

1) Pattern: ‘Heart Stitcher’ freebie from A mon ami Pierre – finished as a pinkeep
2) Pattern: Snow Faces by Just Nan – finished as an ornament

So yeah. All in all a pretty decent year in finishes! I am not counting the projects that I have started and not finished. I am not going to drag myself down because of those haha. I am going to try and be a good girl next year and stitch and knit, and use up some of my stash! I am bringing both a knitting and a stitching project to my parents house tonight as we say goodbye to 2010 and welcome 2011. I have a great feeling about the coming year. I have always liked odd numbers🙂

Me and the girls would like to wish you and your family a wonderful new year. May all your dreams come true.
