Happy New Year!

This year I really want to work on my stash. I have so many projects that I want to stitch. My goal is to work my way through some of the ones that I have started and others that have not seen the light of day for many moons.

The first project out of the block is this project by Catherine Theron. It was one of the Round Robin projects from Celebration of Needlework, Nashua. This was to be my last project for 2008 but, it took a few hours this morning to finish it up.

Little Blackbird Ornament

My first start for 2009 is Letter "G" by Gigi. I started this project today while watching a Private Practice marathon. I am stitching it on a 32ct antique white fabric with Rainbow Gallery Splendor S906. I should have enough done for a picture with my next post.

I plan to continue working on BBD's Where My Heart Blooms and pull out one of my UFO's. If I work on my UFO's consistently I can reduce the number. I am afraid to attempt a count but I know I have a LOT.

There are some ornaments that I stitched that did not make it on the tree last year I want to get those finished soon and continue stitching an ornament a month. With some exchanges and gifts thrown in I should be very busy.

Love the Little Blackbird, he's cute!

Good luck with your stash busting, I think lots of people are planning on the same idea this year.

Look forward to seeing your progress, happy new year!
