What a Year many ups and downs through out 2010, more downs then ups but I did get through another year. I ended the year on a high however. I again this year did The Magic of Christmas *see previous post for pictures*, and again was a very rewarding experience. I did the hospitals again and the centre I went to was again touching. I thought of Rene La Frog when I was doing my rounds. I do believe we have touched some lives in a positive way. There was one gentleman that was touched by us caring for him on Christmas and giving him a stuffed animal. He asked about what the organization was. After we explained to him about it I gave him a hug he started to cry that I cared so much for him I am seriously considering going back to see him. One woman was touched because in her 91 years it was the first time she ever got a teddy bear. Another patient wanted a Koala because he was from Australia originally and I did find one for him cause all the kids in us know that "Santa Delievers". One case that interested me the most was a woman didn't want us to talk or look at her. But when I saw her eating lunch I was able to talk to her and made her smile, the aids were shocked as she is a very aggressive woman. I am glad I went. We did some random Elfing's and made a lot of people smile. That is the best gift ever!!
Not a lot of stitching was done for the year but I plan on making up for that. I still play WOW but not a lot as it has lost all interest even with the new expansion.
For the New Year I have 16 new starts planned, all for January 1st I also have a model stitching job for Kustom Kraft. Really looking forward to that. I have my first assignment but I have to wait for the LNS to open on Tuesday to get the fabric for it. Another thing I am looking forward to is going back to school. I am still waiting for the funding to be approved.
So my 16 New Starts are as follows with photos:
