A final finish for 2011

Here he is in all his glory a little finish,,I just love me some cardinals..and I have stitch this one 2 other times for gifts and thought it was time I did one for me,,
And here is an update on Betsy,,I thought for sure I would have her finish before the end of the year but my eye surgery put a stop to that,,she will be done in 2012.

And my new start will be Shepherds Bush The Wool Gatherer. 2011 wasnt that good in finishes for me,,I seem to take a major break from all my crafting during the summer months, even my husband had notice and mention it that I hadn't done any kind of crafts in a long time..
Well I am hoping you all have a Happy New Year, and I cant wait to see all the projects everyone is planning on doing in 2012...cheers and huggs.

As 2011 comes to a close..

I just want to reflect on the last year. I have many things to be thankful for, my health as one. A month ago I went to the eye doctor and they found a spot on my eye, and decided to do a eye biopsy to see if it was cancer, which made it for a stressful 2 weeks till surgery and then another week to get the results back. Well I made it thru the surgery and the results where the best Christmas present I cancer just a sunspot on my eye..But I also have my family and they have been all healthy this friends both on here and in person, I am truly thankful for you all, you take me to beautiful places I only dream of going, and show your beautiful artwork, and share with me your life's journeys of goods and bad, I am truly blessed to have each and everyone of you in my life. I live in a beautiful place and have a roof over my head and food in my stomach..and I thank God everyday for the little things like seeing a beautiful cardinal at my bird feeder, or hearing my 3 year old grandson laugh..2011 was a good year and I am praying that 2012 will be a better year,,I just want to wish you all a very Happy New Year and my all your dreams come true in it...sending hugs all over the world to you..
Thanks for being there,,
