Blessings of 2013

Just two more sleeps to the New Year. How was my 2013? It was a good year! Of course there were ups and downs but after all - I can't complain. Here are some of the blessings that I'm thankful for:
  1. Freddy is my biggest blessing
  2. I've started my own business and survived. Next year looks very promising!
  3. I'm thankful for Jacques, very good neighbour and a friend
  4. I'm very thankful for my blogging friends and followers
  5. For my spiritual teachers
  6. Frosty Girl that is a lot of trouble sometimes but I love her to pieces. After all she is still a puppy (10 months old)
  7. My ZoomZoom of course who sits on my desk and tirelessly watching me stitching or watching birds outside the window
  8. My clients
  9. Candice for referring new clients
  10. For my quiet moments
  11. For a beautiful, peaceful place I live in
  12. For entertaining birds coming to my feeders
  13. For my stitchy hobby
And talking about my hobby... I have a few finishes this year! Let's see
  • c. 1800 Gift pincushion
  • M. Quertier 1799
  • Birdsong ornament
  • Good Morning
  • Bluenose Dime
  • Couple ornaments (April and May) from Prairie Schooler
  • Happy Fall Towel
  • French Country Pumpkin
  • A freebie from Plum Street Samplers
  • A Baby A Manger
  • Snooty Stitchers Society pincushion - that is my latest finish never seen before. Here is the pic:
What is Snooty Stitchers Society? It's a Facebook group of snooty stitchers who will stitch The Snooty Parrots sampler designed by Barbara Ana starting January 1st.

When I look on my stitchy accomplishements I see twelve finishes... you know, there is a couple more days left in this year... maybe I can stitch one more of my WIPs and end 2013 with 13 finishes... What do you think? My office is closed until January 2nd, I have some time...

So long my friends,


  1. I adore Barbara Ana's designs. She is one of the most talented designers out there. I love her since of color and wit. I see she is also getting into the samplers and they are lovely. If only I thought I could do it, I would join you, but for now, the crochet hook calls my name...but I look forward to watching your postings on this lovely design. :)

    Blessings always and Happy New Year
