Fantasia Update and Great Mail Day

It is so hard to believe that we will be saying goodbye to 2012 in less than 18 minutes.  It is has been a very hard year for me but I was able to survive it.  There were great time too!!  Mark and I visited Rome which was amazing.  I was able to finish several UFO's, attend my ILCS Stitch retreat, and make new friends along the way.  I want to thank my online friends for just being there!  I really appreciate you.

This week I focused on my Disney Fantasia piece.  I was able to finish 1 page!!!!  So happy here!!!!  Right now, I am getting ready to start my Sistine Chapel. I had to put all the extra fabric in a pillow case!!!  Too fun...now all I need to do is put the thread for the section I will be working in it's own thread box....I placed all the threads in a jammer box and I think that is just too much to handle...


Look what came in the mail today!!!!  It is my Castle Magazine and my new HAED - Last Judgement.  I did take advantage of the sale going on at DownSunshinelane!  She has in stock Mill Hill kits 35% off!!! I needed 3 more to finish out my Village series so I decided to order them on Dec. 31...I am not stash shopping next year until my retreat unless it is a magazine.  Go bye and check out her sale! It is a good one!!!  BTW....I am keeping my thirty-one party open until Friday.  I have a PDF copy of the Spring
Catalog if you would like to see it.  I need $89 more in sales before  I can earn double Hostess points...


Happy 2013 Everyone!!!!!  May your days be filled with Reading and Stitching!!!!

Fantasia looks good, Vickie. I'm going on a stash diet, too. Seems like a theme for 2013, lol.

Good luck with your new start! I think it should provide for many hours (or years!) of stitching pleasure!

Vickie, you certainly did get some goodies in the mail. I visited Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany when we were there in 1991, and it was so beautiful! Enjoy all your projects in 2013.

Happy New Year
