first finish of the year

Good afternoon,

I hope everyones New Year is treating them well, I am already wondering where the month is going?  I have been spending it up in the "sewing" room, sorting and reorganizing several times, still not happy, but I'll pitch more stuff as I learn the machine and decide I won't be doing some of the patterns mom has saved in her stash.  It's looking better each day.  I started to bring all my crafting stuff from the basement up and well, more clutter and pitching.  Only going to keep what I'm going to use, room is to small to go crazy and I don't want DH to kick me out.

I finished a cute little pattern by Katidid, called Peace on Earth.  It's been done a week now but I did the beading this morning and I'm pretty happy with it.  Denise at Riverside Stitching was kind enough to let me borrow the pattern.  I saw it before Christmas on her blog and immediately fell in love with it.  I will see if I can find a simple frame at Hobby Lobby for it.  Can't think of anything else to really do with it.

I went to LNS yesterday, bought some patterns and GAST for a RAK group that I belong to, want to get that in the mail tomorrow.  I went through a lot of her patterns but my heart wasn't really in it so I bought some linen and left.  I have plenty of projects that need my attention.  Oh I did reserve my copy of the LHN sheep virtues "Hope", should be here week after next or thereabout!  I'm so excited to do the sheep, that's seems to be my new craze, sheep, ewe's, lambs.  Seems there aren't many sheepy patterns to be found, or I'm not looking in the right places.

Thank you for stopping by,
