Last Post of 2007!

With last Monday being Christmas Eve and today being New Year's Eve I didn't stitch and won't be stitching on Just Nan Queen of the Needle so last night I decided to do a bit on it. I am pleased with how it's looking and I love the effect of the roses. They didn't take me too long to do and I managed to finish that band and make a start on the next so here is my progress:) Do you think my piccies are better? LOL! That's because I borrowed Abi's digital camera that her Grandad M bought her for Christmas! I even managed to take a decent close-up of one of the roses:)

I won't be stitching tonight as the four of us have decided to play on Mario Party for a while then watch Take That bringing the New Year in:)

Tomorrow Karen and I are starting our SAL on Ink Circles Sea Stars:) I'm really looking forward to this as I've never stitched an Ink Circles before so it'll be very new to me. Can't wait to see what Karen does with hers as we're both using different threads:)

While I had Abi's camera out today I took pictures of my new stash.

This is from Lisa:)

The cute little box and one of the threads is from Julie and the other thread is from Jayne ( there was a Cadbury's Magical Elf but I have eaten it!) :)

This is from Karen:)

And finally from DH:)

I have to say that I was overwhelmed that my stitchy friends had sent me presents as I truly did not expect anything so I feel bad that their pressies were either chocolate or candles as I did not have chance to buy anything stitchy for them.

So it's the last day of 2007 and 2008 will soon be upon us. I want to thank each and everyone of you for being with me through the last year and hope you will continue to visit me as I will all of you. You are all my inspiration and I feel blessed to have joined this wonderful community of bloggers. Thank you for the encouragement you give and for all your kind words. Have a wonderful New Year and I will see you in 2008:) {{{{hugs}}}}

QOTN is looking so pretty, and that was a great picture of the rose up close. What lovely new stash you got, and I can't wait to see Sea Stars started. I don't have that one, but I've eyed it for quite awhile. I love the Octopus, Seahorses, and the Sea Serpent at the bottom, and all the different motifs I'll bet are gorgeous. Almost like a mini finish each time one is completed.
