December 29, 2006 - Well, the flu turned into a lung infection. I had one two years ago that took me over a month to overcome. I am feeling some better, but not up to doing much. I always take all my Christmas decorations down the day after Christmas and get my house back to everyday status, but I have not felt like doing that yet.
Our friend's funeral was on Tuesday :( Rest in Peace.
AS I have not been able to do much of anything else...I did do some stitching and have one more finish for the year Winter Wonderland. I am not setting any type of stitching goals for 2007... I have learned so much about life this year, and how much stress people, including myself are under at times and how fast things change-I don't want to be "rushed" anymore... I just want to soak it all in so I plan to just stitch whatever calls to me and enjoy it. . Here are my finishes for the year. I had a total of 70. These were all stitched in 2006.
December 23, 2006 - I have been battling the flu for a week now...I still feel crappy (that's an understatement)but I did pull out an ornie that I had stitched in 2000 (before I stitched on linens and evenweaves, exclusively)and finished it off for my mom. I didn't put a name or date on it the year I stitched it, so I added those details just before doing the finishing. Even though it is stitched on aida, I think the finishing turned out adorable!

October 10, 2006 -I have been stitching away and have finished (if you look at my 2006 finishes, you can count them)..I think about 11 pieces that I cannot share yet...as they are gifts and/or exchanges. I have been enjoying stitching them and doing all the finishing on them. I am getting to enjoy them for a bit until they are mailed off to my friends :). Check back for updates, as I will share as they are received (some will not be received until Xmas though)
