2010 In Review and 2011 Starts Long

Saturday, January 1, 2011.
Warning this post is going to be picture heavy.

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:

So for my 2011 goals they are:

There will be more goals added through out the year but that is the main ones I wanted. Thank you all for hanging out with me this year and I'm excited for what the new year has to hold for me

Good luck on all your starts and working on your model stitching for Kustom Kraft. I am not starting anything new but trying to get some baby blankets done before starting anything new.

That is an admirable start to 2011! I still have things from last year that need to be worked on, if I could just get up enough energy to do them. Right now, trying to work on a set of embroidery kitchen towelsfor dd#1 as when I saw hers, they were the limpest, sorriest, holiest, tatty dish towels I have ever seen. To say they had seen better days is an understatement. It has been over 30 years since I have done that type of needlework, and finally figured out the whys and wherefores of the craft. Am having a ball. I am going to take this year as it comes and go by the spur of the moment and decide as I go. Guess I am not organized enough to make a goal for the stitching part of my life. Good luck and have fun.
