What I stitched in 2006...

Instead of typing up a list of what I managed to get stitched in 2006, I decided to give a pictorial presentation... I didn't include my WIPS, only my finishes...

(***I created a new photo show without music - I don't want to be intrusive :-)
I went right back to And A Forest Grew tonight. I cannot seem to put this one down. It really is as much fun to stitch as it looks! There are somewhere around 100 DMC (or Anchor) colors in this one. I love the Rose Topiary Tree! You will see there is an obvious unstitched area below the tree in the upper left corner. There will be two terra cotta colored birds there, and I would love to stitch them. However, the last two floss colors in the list are printed away from the entire list on a sticker attached to the page in my booklet. Unfortunately, I didn't notice those two colors when I kitted this huge project up... and, of course, I need one of those colors for the birds. I will have to do some hunting in my stash or head out to Joann's soon for them.

And, I heard from Lelia today that she received my little birthday gift that I made for her. I am thrilled that she loves it - it was such fun to make! The design is from the December issue of The Gift of Stitching online magazine, and it has a combination of over two and over one stitching throughout the design. It was such fun!

Wow Carol, some beautiful finishes there. The slide show was just like a trip down memory lane! A wonderful way to share your finishes with us again. I really enjoyed it. Do you have a favourite finish of 2006?

And a Forest Grew is really starting to grow too. Lovely stitching as always. Happy new year!

Your finishes for 2006 are awesome, I can't believe how much you got done. The slideshow way of displaying them was really fun to watch, nice job (and I enjoyed the music too). Seeing all your lovely finishes motivates me to try and finish more this coming year. Hope you have a wonderful 2007,
Sue

That was a great presentation. You really did alot of stitching and finishing too. So many of us get the stitching done but the finishing is something else to think about. Have a great New Year and can't wait to see more of your accomplishments.

I loved your slide show Carol - thank you! It was great to see everything again. I even spotted a couple of beautiful fobs I must have missed seeing you post :)

A very Happy New Year to you and Mike and all the kitties (especially Angus!)

I have to ask - do you ever sleep? That was one amazing list of finishes.
