Update on Love is Reflected

I'm quite sure this will not be done tomorrow, so I thought I would update now. (Besides I wanted 88 posts in 2008 and this is no. 88 so my last post for the year). I've had to do a lot of frogging on this piece but in end will be cute. I really am enjoying the piece. I have to figure out what I will do next but sort of think I will either go back to The Caretaker, or do another Love Quilts piece or start my great nieces birth sampler.

I'm so frustrated. I ordered 4 pattern books and they came yesterday. One was for a RAK and I laid it down. I went to get it 5 minutes later and still cannot find it! I am claming the couch ate it r the cat ran off with it! It's one of those mysteries. I hope it shows up!

This Friday we are having our family Christmas. It was really the only time we could do it and then it's going to be tight for some people as they have to work that day, or leave that night for work the next day. One isn't going to be able to make it because of work. The rest are out of state.

How many of you have stitching goals for 2009? I have some:
1) To finish what I start (no UF0 start)
2) To do a Thomas Kinkaide picture
3) To do a Majolein Bastian piece
4) Work more on The Caretaker
5) Do some family stitching (birth samplers and wedding sampler)
6) To stitch one Ornament a month
7) To do at least 7 pieces for Love Quilts
Is this ambitious? I hope it's realistic. We'll see how I do.

I hope you all have a Happy New Year and a great 2009. See you next year. Until then Happy Stitching!

Hopefully you've found your lost stuff by now. Gotta hate it when that happens!

Your goals sound very reasonable and achievable. I, too, have the goal to stitch one ornament per month. We can do it!

Happy New Year! :)
