december 31 - some blog housekeeping

It's the last day of the year, so I guess it's a good time to take stock of what has gone on for the past twelve months! This has been a crazy and busy year and I am looking forward to some quieter and calmer days ahead, at least I hope so! 

When I look at my sidebars, I see that I have done quite a bit of reading this year...and not so much stitching. I did actually complete more pieces than are show...some ornies, and a few other small exchanges, but nothing really major this year. There just didn't seem to be that much time for stitching in my life this year.

But I, like so many of you,have embarked on not one, but two crazy challenges for 2011...starting and finishing 15 new projects and finishing an additional 15 UFOs/WIPs. Are we all crazy? Undoubtedly yes! But the journey will be fun.
Thanks to Annette's help, I placed some tabs at the top of this blog, and I have listed the projects I plan to do there. Of course,because I am so compulsive (I guess) there are more than 15 on each list.Maybe I am just optimistic, ,more likely, I am just nuts! 

Unfortunately, I am also starting out the new year with a chest and sinus infection...but I did go to the doctor's this morning and after taking some meds and sleeping most of the day I am finally starting to feel a little bit better.
Jeff and I just got back from a lovely dinner out. We always go for Chinese food on New Year's Eve and it was delicious. Plus, we have lunch for tomorrow!
So I'm off to get my project ready for tomorrow. I'll try to post progress pics each least for the new starts. I am really excited to watch everyone's progress on all the new projects.

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and leaving comments. I have spent the past couple days at work finding lots of new blogs to visit (I know...I should have been working, but it's the holidays!) and I hope to have time to continue to visit with all of you.

I wish all my readers a very happy new year, filled with love, friends, family, fun, good health and peaceful times.

Thanks for visiting!
