Dec. Smalls SAL and Stuff

Hi Blogger Friends.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of stitchy goodies.  I bought myself about 30 charts because hubby doesn't know what to get.

I want to thank all of you for visiting my blog this year and a special thanks to those that leave comments.  I am still visiting your blogs and leaving comments but you don't get an email from me and no one can fix it.  Just know that I do read and comment.

I have read several blogs today that have done a year end post.  That would take me a week to do with all the pictures so I am going to do (hopefully) a short version.  I ended this year with 274 UFO's/WIP's.  I started 129 cross stitch projects this year and finished 18.  I also crocheted 2 baby blankets, 3 lapghans and 1 doggie blanket.

Onto next year.   I still have about 300 squares to crochet and than crochet the 800 squares together into 10 blankets by the end of April.  NO PROBLEM.  I HOPE to have 54 cross stitch projects fiinished by the end of April.  MIGHT NEED SOME LUCK WITH THIS ONE.  Yes, I am starting 366 cross stitch projects next year.  (I was tested and yes I'm certified crazy.)  LOL  I have the fabric cut for January and February and pretty much know what the rest of my starts are.  I'm sorta saving December for those new charts that insist on being bought and started.

It's the last Wednesday of the month and time for the last Smalls SAL post.  This is being hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus.  We pick a small project to stitch on and post a finished picture on the last Wednesday of the month.

Christmas Blessings with Charm - Lizzie Kate
14ct Lemon Twist
Started 12-29-15
Finished 12-30-15

Cinderella's Castle - I only stitched on this 7 days this month but did get 1,033 stitches done.

I did finish the lapghan for my friend for Christmas and one for her doggie.

My orts for the year.

Thank you again for stopping by this year.  I hope you don't get tired of my posts next year.  My plans are to post my starts every couple days and post everyday in April.

Dec. Gifted Gorgeousness and TUSAL

GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  We all have projects that have been gifted to us or pieces that we are doing as gifts.   This SAL is so we can work on those and post on the 15th.  The magazine was gifted to me by our wonderful hostess.

Mini London by Satsuma Street.  I did a little teeny tiny bit.

TUSAL This is where we save our (ORTS) or floss and yarn ends and post a picture of them on the New Moon.  This is being hosted by It's Daffycat.  I'm still crocheting and doing very little stitching.  Stitching an hour a day on the castle use to add lots of orts to the jar.  I haven't worked on it since Dec. 7.  I have been crocheting on the red and gold lapghan.  

Only 16 days left in this year.  I still haven't cut any fabric for my 366 starts next year.  I am still no where close to being ready for the April A - Z challenge.  BUT, I must admit that I do tend to work better under pressure.  I will get it done.  (Toes crossed)  lol
I'll be back with the finish of the lapghan.

Thanks for stopping by and a special thanks to those who leave comments.
