A Finish!

With a mere 7 hours left in the month, I finished something!! This is what happened with the blocks from the previous post. It's also a UFO that has gone through 2 moves with me. And! Not only is it done, but it's hanging up too!

Yeah! Thanks for the push to finish something May Britt and Kris.

One Project a Month Challenge

Wow, what a start to the New Year.

Jacquie never suspected that the SSCS gift I was making was for her and she liked it!! Yeah!! It was so much fun when Donna handed out our elf assignments and I realized that it was someone's blog that I followed and enjoyed already. It was great to re-stalk her blog on a mission. Fortunately for me, Jacquie is a prolific blogger and she gave me lots of ideas on what I could do for her.

She very kindly gave me this award:

Thank-you. Even though it's past Christmas, I'm still passing it along. I'd pass it along to Donna but she doesn't like being passed along these sorts of awards, so Donna consider it passed along in spirit.

The other people that bring Christmas around for me every year are my Ornament Exchange group: BK, SR, and ennavic. We've been exchanging handmade ornaments with each other since 1994. Every year the most amazing creations find their way in my mailbox and over the years we've gotten the 4 most beautiful Christmas trees in the world. (In my unbiased opinion of course. :)
These are the beautiful ornaments I received this year.

These are the ornaments I made for this year. (Obviously I missed the memo that this year's ornaments were neutrals... :)

I decided that I really need to do something about that unmoving UFO list on the side of my blog. No sooner had I made that decision then May Britt and Kris announced a challenge for 2009 - The One Project a Month Challenge.

My first project for January will be this one:

It's sooooo close to done, it's sad.
