Welcome 2014!!!!

Happy New Year to everyone.. what a landslide of a year.  Since July my world has just been uprooted and re adjusted... finding out my dad died. Then... swoooooosh.. gargle... and SPIT!  Wow...   I have aunts... uncles.. cousins... BROTHERS....  nieces and nephews... new experiences to be had by all.  Wow all the new details to learn... what makes me who I am.... I had a wonderful childhood.. but it might have had a bit more adventure with everyone in it from the start.  I would have liked to have looked in my dads eye... to have told him how awesome my childhood was... to have heard his voice.

So stitching has been wanted but my mental focus has not truly been where it needs to be to stitch...

I will start out by listing some of my stitching goals for 2014...

Working on UFO's...
♥ Peaceful Paradise
♥ Grandmother Fairy - Mirabillia
♥ LK Mystery Christmas piece
♥ Mary Cotton LaDDa

Also several christmas ornaments to start ... stitch... and finish!

Big goals... but if just a few get done I am so happy. 

I also want to show you some of the ornaments and progress for the end of 2013....
