Month In Review.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010.
Well January went really fast. Saw a lot of ups and downs. Everyone here has been sick at least once. A few twice. I am thankful I've only been sick once. *Knock on Wood*

January saw me actually complete my goals at the first of the month so I decided to put an extra item into the mix. That extra item is the bookmark I'm working on for my dear love Kris. I gave up on hiding it from him as he loves my stitching and wants to learn so of course I sent him some to do :) Here is the before picture of Oriental Courage. And here is the picture of it now

I also worked on Elfland this month and my goal was 1000 stitches and was extremely attainable so I intended to stop there. Here is the picture of it with 1000 stitches:

Well I couldn't stop I loved working on this so much that I did another 1000 stitches on it. So I completed 2000 stitches total on this. I am getting a bit of a ripple effect as there is so much bulge on the back but will fix when I stretch it which is great. I will be giving this to my daughter who now is getting into reading. Here it is after 2000 stitches:

Another project I worked on was my Mystery XII The Caribbean. I love the colours on this. They are so vibrant and bright and rich I love it. I finished part 11a in January and it is looking fantastic. I love it so far. Here is part 11a: And here is it over all:

The last project I worked on was Monopoly. I am right on track with my goals. I did finish the February square already which I am happy about :) but you will get to see that on Sunday lol. Here is Ventor Avenue: And here it is overall:
So my goals for February are:
1. Finish States Avenue on Monopoly *check done lol*
2. Finish Part 7 on Mystery XII *working on that now*
3. Finish 2000 Stitches on Elfland *that one is up next*
4. Finish Page 1 on Oriental Courage
I also had a finish in January but as that was for the Valentine's day Exchange on the ILCS group I will share that when the person receives it in the Mail. I sent it yesterday so I hope she receives it in plenty of time :) The last photo I thought I'd share with all of you is one of my precious puppy. Well he's really not a puppy anymore he is 8 but he is such a sweet spoilt dog and he is handsom. Here is Thor:
He is a true Canadian dog as in Canada and I know there is about 100 shops in the Eastern US of Tim Hortons he is a Timbit dog which is just the doughnut holes for those who don't have Timmies. He is bugging me for some more as he knows he has 2 left on the counter lol...
Happy stitching
