Happy New Year!

Well it is hard to believe that another year has passed. Every year I say I am going to post more to my blog and then life just gets in my way. Well it is 2017 and I am going to give it another try. Not that anyone ever comes to visit my blog.
So I did manage to complete a few things just prior to the end of 2016. I stitched an ornament for my grandson Hayden. It was a lovely free pattern from The Snowflake Diaries. It turned out rather well. I stitched his name and the year on the front and my initials on the back. I also made a beaded ornament and then mounted it on silk for my girlfriend. Lastly I lost a stitching friend last year and managed to acquire one of the pieces of stitchery she started. It was actually 75% done so I finished the ribbon embroidery .... not my thing at all. I added the beads my friends initials, my initials and then another row of whitework so it would fit in the frame better. I gifted the finished piece to my son's girlfriend who knew my friend as she was best friends with her grandmother.
So hopefully I can be organized enough to post once or twice a month. :)
