Kate's Necessaire (from 2007 Celebrations)..

Picture coming soon but I finally finished this! I spent time on Sunday putting this together and really enjoyed it. It was very relaxing and I'm so happy that this is finally completed!

That ended a weekend of babysitting all three of my little cousins! It was a crazy weekend but they were on their very best behavior and we had a good time baking cookies, playing games and watching movies.

Well work continues to be busy but I'm looking forward to more cross stitch time finally in the evenings!

No news on the house front yet, waiting for the water to be turned on so we can get the inspection, still keeping fingers crossed that we get approved for financing!

Leslie's Neighborhood RR finished and on it's way home! I stitched Little House Needlework's Cherry Tree Inn (modified it a bit). I love this patter and it was a delight to stitch. I chose to do a bunny instead of the person because a person didn't fit in with the rest of the neighborhood.
And here is Leslie's RR to date. She's going to unpick block one and Marie kindly agreed to stitch a house for her there. It's a wonderful neighborhood and a great one to be my last in this group!

January Goals

First the goals for this month - it's a busy month with trying to buy a house so I'll keep it to the important things...
1) Finish Leslie's NRR and mail it.
2) Make a birthday gift for mom
3) Make fleece pants for dad's birthday
4) Pull out something fun to stitch
5) Make invitations for sister's shower
6) Make favors for sister's shower

2009 Goals (after January)
1) Hem my bridesmaid dress for sister's wedding
2) Hem other bridesmaid dress for sister's wedding
3) Make flower girl dress for sister's wedding
4) Finish page 3 of Celtic Banner
5) Make baby sampler for coworker's baby by first birthday
6) Work on Amish Quilt
7) Finish embroidery on Leanne's quilt blocks

Currently the house we are interested in buying is going to be a large project for us so I'm not sure how these goals will go. Last year was not a xstitch year, I'd like to get back to that though!
