1st Finish of 2012

I finish my first piece on Saturday. I had started it as one of my 15 new starts for the 2012 CJC. 
Little House Needelworks
Started Jan. 6, 2012
Finished stitching Jan.  21, 2012
30 ct Straw Weeks Dye Works
and used recommended flosses

I was excited to finish this one so I could move on to something else, like
Metamorphosis by Ink Circles
I have the center one just about done.

I was hoping to have this one completed yesterday (Sunday) and could have if our plans had not changed. You see I had planned on having Lutefisk for supper but when I went looking for the butter in the frig - low and behold all out. And you can't eat Lutefisk without butter! So DH & I went to town to pick some up and as we drove down Main St of our little town, we saw War Horse was playing at the Theater. We made a U-turn and went back and the show was just starting, what timing. It was a really good movie, and I am glad we stopped. After the movie we went and got our butter and a few other things of course. We enjoyed our Lutefisk supper and it brought back memories of my grandparents because they use to make it us on the holidays.

I think I will do a little blog reading and then I am going to finish the center piece of Metamorphosis and then I have been hearing a very old WIP has been calling me to work on it and by old I mean I have not worked on it since I have been blogging an some before that. I will take a picture and put it on my next post.
And I leave you with a few shots of my Jan 2012 TUSAL

Have a good week every one
Happy Stitching
