Goals for 2013 & more

Good morning fellow bloggers. The sun is shining and it suppose to be really nice today. Which means that some of the snow might be melting here.
I have decided to work on my WIP's & UFO's this year. And I also plan to do a few small projects also, such as Christmas ornaments.
This is the plan for now:
January - Abigail Birth Sampler
February - BoaF, With Thy Needle & Thread
March- Blooming with Inspiration, Blue Ribbon Design
April - We Three Kings, Glendon Place
May - The Embroiderer, Paula Vaughan
June - Spirit of Christmas Santa Christmas Stocking
July - Woodland enchantress
August - Sweet Cake, Erica Michaels
September - 15 sided Biscornu
October - The Best Things
November - Blessed are the Needleworkers
December -  Petticoat Heart.
I am hoping to get a few of these completed this year, some are real close.
Now for some progress pictures.
During the month of December I didn't get much stitching done , here is what I worked on.
( Well I wanted to get this posted this morning but I will have to finish it after I get off work at 2:00 and hopefully I can figure out how to download my pictures, it seems they change stuff on us again)
We Three Kings by
Glendon Place
And this is what I stitched in December
I used the called for fabric and threads
I also kept track of how many stitches I have done,
2452 stitches
And so for the month of January I will be working on Abigail's Birth Sampler. The last time I worked on in it was the end of November and this is what it looked like then.
And here is what I done so far since the first of  January
I tried and tried to get a picture that showed what
I had gotten done. If you look really close there is some blue on the right side, the
yellow flowers on the left side and some back stitching around the baby.
This last picture is of my step granddaughter, Kyla. This is her second piece that she has completed.
The thread she used for this project was part of her Christmas present from me.
She plans to give this to her friend at school.
Well I started this post this morning about 8:00 and finally figured out how to download my pictures.
I think there was more that I wanted to post about but now I can't remember. So I will close now so I can go and get some stitching in this evening.
Happy Stitching

Hi Denise! Loving your blog. Your WIPs look great. We Three Kings has got to be one of my absolute favorite Christmas songs, and I can't wait to see what your piece looks like when it's done. And the baby sampler is adorable too!
