Good-bye 2012 - Hello 2013

I am sitting here in my living room watching the snow fall and thinking about next year. I have bought a lot of stash lately and will have to use some up lol. I am terrible at remembering to take pictures but now have my camera back (my daughter borrowed it for a trip to Seattle in September!) and will start the new year off right :) 

I am currently working on a wedding present for a dear friend and a biscornu for an exchange due out the middle of January.  I have never made a biscornu before so I will keep you posted on my progress.  I made 2 mug rugs and 8 ornaments but they were all gifts and no camera means no pictures. So sorry. I make ornaments for my husband's family every year and the mug rugs were for my mother-in-law and my boss. I have a 3rd one started so will post a picture when done. 

For 2013 I plan on completing 1 panel of Shores of Hawk Run Hollow finish the biscornu for the exchange, the wedding present, and I just ordered the threads for Baby It's Cold Outside - Cross Stitch Pattern by Heartstring Samplery. I loved it as soon as I saw it and can't wait to start it! I also will be making ornaments and hope to start an ornament tree. I got the idea from Shari at Shari's Sharings  She makes ornaments to decorate her ornament tree and uses them for last minute gifts. I realized this year that I have a HUGE stash of ornament patterns so I'd better get cracking!

Before 2012 ends let me leave you with a couple of pictures of our Christmas tree, 2 ornaments from a few years ago, my mom's nativity and the beautiful snow out side my window.

Thank you for visiting and wishing you all a blessed and safe New Year!!!
