We are supposed to talk about what we have accomplished this year. I have had 4 finishes:
Live Out Loud
Jump for Joy
I don't have my plans finalized for 2015 yet but I will be participating in Measi's WIPocalypse again. I like watching everyones progress and I like tracking my own progress each year.

I am spending tomorrow with my sister on a bus trip to Chicago. We went last year and had a good time. Looking forward to spending time with my sister.

When I was uploading my progress picture I noticed I had taken a picture of Little Fairies at Play a year ago on 11/23/13. Here is my progress as it was then several pages back. Nice to know I have made some progress in a years time.

I do want to go thru my stash and pull the patterns for the projects I want to start in 2015. I have made a list. That way I can slowly kit them up from what I have on hand and then slowly buy whatever is missing. I am trying to put in some small projects so I will have some finishes once in a while. But most on my to do list are large.

We are to talk about our favorite things. Well I enjoy stitching on Aida. I know I am in the minority. Butterfly Fairies Night is being stitched on even weave. And it is ok but I really have to think and need good lighting to work on it. I have tried stitching on linen. My UFO Pinecone Sampler is on linen. I just enjoy stitching on Aida as I can sit back and enjoy the design coming to life without thinking about it too much.
I also enjoy backstitching as it brings the project to life. And I like large projects that fully cover the fabric. I have started adding some smaller projects to my rotation because I do like having finishes occassionally.
