Dancer to Winter

Wow, here we are at the end of another year.  It just flew by, and was very busy.

It's been a wild and crazy year. 

Unlike most years, work stuff played a major part in my non-work hours.  It was super busy and there were lots of changes and extra work to be done; I put in extra hours almost all year and there was lots of stress :(  The first part of the new year will see still more work on our move being done but it shouldn't be as bad.  Also, early in February my manager will be back from her maternity leave which will help a lot.

I had been thinking that I didn't get a lot of stitching done in 2012.  Then I made the happy dance list:

Earthdancer (Butternut Road)
Tribal Butterfly
Tribal butterfly (Sparklies)

Assisi circle (Kincavel Krosses)
Wedding row (Bent Creek)
French country teddy bear (JBW)
Paradigm lost (Long Dog)
Paradigm Lost

Red noel ornament (Les Grilles de Maryse)
Sherbet flake (Ink Circles)
Christmas wishes(Blackwork Journey)
Christmas lace (Ink Circles)
Happily ever after (Dimensions)
Oh joy (Val's Stuff)
Holly cross (twice) (Ink Circles)
Noel ornament (Redwood Manor)
Cat portrait (Brittacup Designs)
Winter (Ink Circles)

Here is the ort jar as of this evening:

Tomorrow is the start of a New Year Stitch Along.  This year is Maple Leaf by Alessandra Adelaide.  I have everything ready to go to start when I get up.

Until next year: thank you all for reading and being a part of my blogging life.
