First finish of 2010!!


Sorry this is sorta fuzzy, but it is overcast and cloudy today, so this is about as good as its gonna get.This is my first finish for the year. It is a freebie found at the Rainbow Gallery website, and the designer is Erica Micheals. I plan on doing the entire years worth of these little guys. Right now I'm about half finished with February's. I love these little guys, they are small and easy to finish.
I want to share some more progress photos with you, as I worked on "Raindrops" This weekend, but I am kinda bombed out on pain pills, since I had to have my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday and am still recovering. The pain keeps shifting from side to side, and it is kind of annoying...oh well. At least it is done and over with.
Also, I want to thank everyone who left such supportive comments on my last post! I was so aggravated!!! And I apologize if my tone or wording was offensive, but I just get so sick of other people ruining something that I enjoy!! There's no need for it, and I just blew up....sorry!!
Anyway, I was thinking last night, as I lay in bed, in pain, waiting for my meds to kick in, about my goals for February. And here they are: We shall see how it goes!
1. Finish February checkered Block
2. Finish Letters D, and E in Alphabet mini sampler blocks
3. Finish "Raindrops"
4. Get a good start in on "I'm not Tired" (Lamb series #3)
5. Work on "Howling at the Moon" (5-10 hours at least)
6. Work on "The Abbey" (5-10 hours)
So, those are my goals. I am thinking that I should get more stitching in this month, as I am pretty much caught up on reading for the this month. In order to reach my 75 book goal I need to read 6 and a quarter books per month, and I just finished #12 for the year last night, so I'm done with this months' quota. Although I know I will still read like crazy...lol. So, I am going to concentrate on stitching this month.

How cute is he. But I have a question? If you have to read that many books a month, when do you find time to stitch.
Be always in stitches.
