I finished it yesterday!  I just need to find a frame and frame it and it will be ready for my husband's office.

Yes, there is a mistake in it.  I was going to frog it but then my husband couldn't find the error and even when I pointed out the error, he couldn't see it so I'm not going to frog it.  I changed the numbers and letters in it from the original pattern.  I also had to substitute two WDW for the GAST because my LNS was out and it's not the required fabric.  So, basically, I made it my own.

Current String Projects

Since the New Year started, I have been working on "Strawberry Fields Forever" by Blackbird Designs.  I am hoping to have it done and framed by Feb 20 (which is my anniversary and the husband's birthday).

I also started a new project.  I have had the materials and pattern for a few years but I never got around to starting it.  It is a "January Sampler" and it has beads and metallics and everything.  I realized today that I had read part of the pattern wrong so there was some frogging but I have made a good start so far.  There are companion February and March pieces which I hope to two the next two months as well (and then frame them all in the same type of frame).

Ornament Project Update

I am caught up!  Whoo hoo!

It was a bit late to make the tree but oh well.  She can enjoy it next year and hopefully I will have the ornaments done sooner (there will only be like three to make).

I did swap in some metallics (on the crown and necklace and the white collar) and satin (the bodice).

WIPs of 2016

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.  I got a few crafty things.

I don't normally set a ton or resolutions but here are my goals for the next year.
  1. Wear my FitBit every day.
  2. Read 200 books.
  3. Get the champion ribbon at the fair (grand or reserve)
  4. Get a ribbon at the state fair
Now, to the WIPs.  I still have a bunch in progress even though I finished off a few last year!  The following are the ones that I will be focusing on this year.  I have a few new projects I want to do as well.  You can always click the "Long Term Projects" tab to see all the WIPs I have.
