A nice view... and a huge thank you...

That's the view I had this morning when I arrived at the office. I just stopped and quickly took out my camera to take a picture.

So today started very well. I also got the package from Sharmila, I won her giveaway on her blog Stitching my way

And check out what I got:

A huuuuuuuuuge thank you to Sharmila. Everything is just perfect: the "L", the bag, the earrings, which I'll sure be wearing, the keyring (already with my housekeys) and the threads.
First time for me I ever received something from India. So, it's an honor for me Sharmila.

I hope I can be back soon to show you some progress on my Advent Calendar. I'm on the backstitching part of the main frame, and it takes FOR-EVER!!!! Anyway, I want it to be done!!!!

Take care of yourself.

Wishes for 2011 and resolutions

Dear readers,

First of all, I want to wish you all a very happy New Year. I hope this upcoming year will be full of happiness, joy, health, and welfare.

In September, I decided to work back on my UFO's. So, today, I set up a list of all the UFO's (or long time WIP's, call them what you want ;o)

And, I came up with this:

Advent Calendar - Dimensions
Maidens of the seasons I - Mirabilia
Maidens of the seasons II - Mirabilia
Fairy Flora - Mirabilia
Bouquet of roses - Thea Gouverneur
Japanese Serenity - DMC
Chocolate Party - DMC
Fish city - Stoney Creek
Beachcomber cottage - The Craft collection

So, that makes 9. My resolution for this year is to make good progress on these and hope to finish some of them. The Advent Calendar will be done, for sure. On a forum, a UFO day has been set up, which means we'll be working on one of our UFO every Thursday and show our progress on Fridays. I think I'll stick to the bouquet of roses. This is a hard one but so pretty that I want to finish it.

I'll also be starting a new project after my advent calendar. This is my reward for ending up a few UFO's since september. But, I haven't chosen yet.

I'll keep you posted about this.

Time for me to go.

Thanks a lot for passing by and reading me.

Have a nice day.
