Archives for the 2006 Cross stitch year

Becky's Place

Becky's Blog

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!

July 12, 2006- I was able to stitch this very quick
during a couple breaks I had today.
They may be small
(portable, which is the only thing that works for me at this time),
but it has felt WONDERFUL to actually find time
to stitch a couple of pieces.

July 11, 2006- I am 3 months behind
on the Prairie Year SAL
due to having NO stitching time in the past few months.
I was able to stitch
May Motif
over the past two days.
