It is the final NewFO and I so thank Barbara for hosting over the years. I will be sorry to see this disappear, but I will certainly carry on with 'starting something new' - don't we all enjoy that step?
My official NewFO is this 'found' cross stitch kit. And it has been a great source of 'slowing down' during the hectic month of December.
I usually have each month's NewFO finished, but this is the only time that a project will float on. I don't want to rush this - enjoying each strand and stitch as the design appears on the cloth. And it will be lovely to remember fondly of all the past NewFOs over the years - both my own and those linked by others.
I have enjoyed participating in Lynne's monthly challenge and sadly this will be the last, too. Still that something new will carry on and I certainly have a pile of old that needs finishing.
For my Something Old, I was happy to finish up the 'Apples For Sale' piece.
For my Something New I used my project for the Monthly Small Project - this little table topper in holiday fabrics.
And I finished the wallhanging for my Let's Book It project.
Ta-Da!! Finally the 'Under the Button Tree' is finished - my last finish for the year 2014.
I worked on blocks for Country Corners, Sew Sweet Simplicity, and my OMG. Also, I made and mailed out blocks to donate toward the Sidney Heroes quilts.
I have been doing some clearing, cleaning, re-arranging, and prepping for projects for the new year.
Happy New Year,
