Just in time for the holidays I finished my Blackbird Designs 'Tis The Season. This was a joy to stitch and I can hardly wait until I can get it framed and on my walls. Those of you who read my blog regularly will have seen pictures of this one posted already.
This was followed by one more small finish which I stitched as a gift for my son's girlfriend. They have two kittens this Christmas which are wrecking havoc with the tree and I thought this ornament was perfect for Stef.

I also received a new chart which I had hoped would arrive earlier and I couldn't wait to get started at. This is one of the 3 samplers from Heartstring Samplery Joy to the World and is called Let Every Heart.
Joy to the World is one of my favourite Christmas carols and I love all 3 samplers in this chart so I will also be stitching the other 2 at some point in time.
I also started one more ornament to add to my collection. I hope to keep on stitching these throughout the year. This one is by Little House Needleworks and is called Bringing Home The Tree.
Edit: I forgot to include these two ornaments which I finished off since my last WIPocalypse post.

I think I've done pretty well with my list for this past year. In fact I'm thrilled with what I managed to complete! I've finished all except for my two new starts, Paradis Perdu, which is still in progress and 2 other charts ( With Thy Needle & Thread Snow Day and Prairie Schooler Garden Sampler). I'm adding Snow Day to the list for next year but I'm still not sure about Garden Sampler. I have so many others which I'm itching to get started at.
My first start for 2013 will be Alesandra Adelaide Maple Leaf which I'm doing as part of a SAL with my Eastern Ontario stitching buddies.
I hope that most of you have accomplished your goals for 2012 and I look forward to seeing what's on your list for the coming year.
Enjoy digging through your stash, I know I am!
