Blogging on the last day of the year

Well, I am finally here to blog for the last time for 2009! I promised myself that I would make my last blogging entry today since I have neglected my blog for some time now and I am really feeling guilty that I have not written anything for the past months. This was due to work commitment, household chores etc. So here goes!

So what did Santa bring everyone? Whatever you got I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and that you will have an equally enjoyable New Year. I also wish everyone a happy, prosperous, healthy and blessed 2010. Around this time of the year when the new year dawns, I usually reflect on the past year and I get very apprehensive about the coming year. Last year was a bitter sweet year for me and my family but we are grateful that we have reached the end of this year and hoping that 2010 will be a better year for all of us. I am not one for making new year's resolutions simply because I find them hard to keep so I just pray for good health and guidance to make the right decisions as the year goes by.

Stitching wise, as always I do have some projects I want to start and complete. There are so many but I will try to stitch them all. I am looking at stitching something small each week but I will see how that will go. And of course there are the exchanges. I hope to participate in more this year as well. Speaking of exchanges, I took part in another HoE exchange - beCAUSE it's Pink in October. My Partner for this exchange was Margaret from New Zealand. It go there in record time and I was very pleased about this. I made her a pendibule for the exchange.

The design was from 'My Aunt's Attic'. I stitched it on cream 28 ct. evenweave and added pink beads along the pointed area of the pendibule. I liked how it turned out despite I thought that the colour thread choosen was too light but nevertheless my partner said that she was pleased with it.

For this exchange I received from Nela. She made me some pincushions. I am not sure what she called them because she wrote in Spanish so I was at a lost to what she said they were. She included some pins with roses pin heads which are very cute and some embellishments. This is what she sent:

Thank you so much Nela.

Well I have more pics to show but not right now. I will post again soon in the new year before I return to work on January 5. So do look out for them but for now thanks for stopping by see you in 2010!
