Happy New Year!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy & Prosper New Year!

My New Year has had a great start!! First I have my last finish form 2006…well sort of!! It is the BC Snapperville! I was able to get it all stitched but the flag on 6th block! I went to get my Lancaster Red floss & it wasn’t in with all my other floss! I must have used it & miss placed it (I think the 'ole frog must have snatched it) It is no where to be found & I know I had it! I have some on the way to me, but wont be here for a few more days, so I will still consider this piece as my last stitch of 2006! I still need to add the snaps & buttons to it & have my DH make the frame for it! Hopefully it will be hanging on my wall soon :-)

This morning I made my first stitching purchase for 2007! I subscribe to The Gift Of Stitching! There is a Bee Pinkeep design by Diane Williams from Little House Needleworks & her Daughter from Country Cottage Needleworks in this months issue. I love both of these designers & just had to get that pattern!! I have been wanting to make a pinkeep for sometime now & what a wonderful pattern to make my first pinkeep from :o)

I am getting ready to do a SAL with Mary Ann! We are going to stitch the BC Snappers 2004 monthly charts. We will be stitching one a month & I am really looking forward to this SAL! I was in an R&R about 2 –3 yrs. ago & one of the ladies had chosen the BC Snappers & when it was my turn to stitch them, I really liked them & have been wanting to stitch them ever since. I pulled all my threads & have my charts ready. I ordered some fabric for it & now just waiting for the fabric to arrive & then I will be ready to start. YEHA!! I am planning to stitch it on 32 ct Ivory Jobelan with DMC threads. I also thought about Lambswool for it, so I order that as ! I will see which one will look best with the colors!

I am still working on my blog & will be adding to it these next few days. I would like to get some type of theme going & looks like it may take sometime!

Happy Stitching!
