Anyway I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We've had a brilliant time just chatting and playing. We were lucky enough to get a Nintendo Wii for the girls from my Dad ( just in the right place at the right time when Gamestation had stocks) so we've spent quite a lot of time on playing bowling, golf etc.and generally having a laugh. The girls were really pleased with their presents as were DH and I. I received a Nintendo DS Lite ( I think we're keeping Nintendo going this year!) along with the Brain Training game and I won't embarrass myself by telling you all what my brain age is at the moment! I also received clothes, body spray, shower gel, boots, a book, several CDs ( Mika, Nickleback, Westlife and 2 by Take That), a DVD, slippers, and a bag.
I did get some lovely stash. DH bought me AMAP Victoria's Quaker and Blackbird Designs With Needle and Thread book, and I also received some fabby and threads from Karen, Drawn Thread Spot of Winter from Lisa, thread and a lovely little box from Julie and thread from Jayne ( along with a Cadbury Magical Elf!). I haven't done a deal of stitching though over the past few days. Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV came out and I did a little bit of that but I'm not sure I have the enthusiasm to finish it. Last night I prepared my fabby for the RR that Lisa, Chris, Tracy, Jane and I are doing and I might even start that tonight. Will see how I feel as I'm full of cold and not feeling too brilliant. I thought I'd missed out on it as DH has had his about four weeks now.
Time to review my goals for 2007 and see how I've done. I must admit that I'm quite pleased as I've just about completed everything I wanted to stitch barring Winter Sampler from Cross Stitcher ( not started), Indigo Rose Bee Charmer ( not started), Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV ( started but not finished) and Midsummer Nights Designs Sweet World ( not started). So not too bad really! I haven't even looked at my stash to see what I'd like to stitch in 2008 but I may well just leave it open and decide as I go along! Anyway here is my up-to-date WIP piccie of the Christmas Mystery. As I have said before this has put me off ever doing another of the Chatelaine mysteries without seeing a lot of it first! Once bitten, twice shy as they say!
I am now doing the 20 project challenge and am keeping my finger's crossed that I can do well with it. I was going to wait until 1st January but I won't be buying anything else now so I may as well make a start:) I fancy a new start tonight but I think I should just concentrate on what I have on the go for now! I'll have a new start on 1st January as that is when Karen and I start our SAL on Ink Circles Sea Stars which I'm looking forward to. I need to sort my fabby but my threads are wound onto bobbins ready to go!
That's it for me! If I don't get chance to blog before I'd like to wish everyone a Happy, healthy, prosperous, stash- filled 2008:). I promise to catch up on blogs over the next couple of days. Google Reader tells me I have 127 posts to catch up on! LOL!
