Last Project of 2009=First Post of 2010

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

Wooooo hooooo! It's 2010! Hard to believe 2009 is over. It's also hard to believe that my last post was a month ago. Yikes. Sorry about that. December was a busy month for me, as I am sure it was for all of you.

I only have one picture to share with you today. Some of you may know that Mollie graciously shared advent patterns with her readers during the month of December. Here is my take on the them:

advent (wip)

There are 24 individually stitched pieces. There is actually a 25th pattern, but it wasn't on Mollie's website yet when I snapped this pic. Though this project isn't technically finished and is therefore a WIP (nothing has been sewn together yet), I was still VERY proud of myself for getting this much done by Christmas Eve.

I am pleased with my choice to do everything in red. It not only looks so cheery and Christmas-y, but it made for some very easy stitching. See that tree there on the right side of the pic, about halfway down? I whipped that up in 8 minutes. I timed it. :)

By the way, I recommend viewing this pic on Large in flickr to see everything better. It's not the greatest pic in the world, as the light--or lack thereof--was very poor, but it's worth seeing, in my humble opinion. ;)

Oh, and before I forget, check out this interview that the super rad Pam (aka Faster Kittykill) did with me on her blog. And while you're there, be sure to take note of all the other cool things Pam blogs about. She's got quite a few interviews with some mega talented people, along with movie recommendations, drink recipes, and cute dog tales. Pam is the coolest kid on the block, folks!

Well, that's it for me, my beloved darlings. I hope you aren't mad at me for taking soooooo much time in between my last post and this one! I will try harder to post more often now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays is behind me. After all, I have a trillion projects to work on, so there will be plenty to blog about. So stay tuned! I will be back with something soon. Until then...

Happy Stitching!

Super cute! Before I read your words (I eat with my eyes first) I thought these were little Christmas ornaments, which would be cute also. Thanks for sharing, great job!
