Merry Christmas!

Hope you've had a wonderful Christmas season!  Mine has been hectic, as usual...it's so hard to try juggling a full time job, and having so many things you want to do to celebrate the season.  Oh well, it has come, and is almost gone. 
In between all the madness, I've been trying SO hard to finish my 2 main project goals for the year...Carriage House Samplings' Village of Hawk Run Hollow, and Carriage House's alphabet sampler.   Thankfully, the alphabet sampler was finished Thursday.  I also wanted to work on something Christmas-y last night on Christmas Eve, while watching Miracle on 34th Street.  I finished Sampler Girl's "Bedford Falls 1946".  It is adorable, can' t wait to do the ornament finishing, and have it ready for next year's tree!  Now, if only I can get Village finished this week. I have a sinking feeling that it won't happen.  My heart isn't in it right now.  I have been going through my stash planning my projects for 2012, and see too many other things I'd rather be working on!  But , I'll do my best.
Once again, I've joined the Crazy January Challenge for 2012, as well as WIPacolypse 2012, and a Blackbird Designs Challenge.  I love any excuse to play in my stash, start new projects,  and make lists, haha!
So, here are pictures of my finishes, they are pretty self-explanatory!









Hope to be back this week with Christmas pictures, as well as Village of Hawk Run Hollow photos!  And if not, Happy New Year!

Hi Cindy- the alphabet is GORGEOUS! Congrats on the finish, and I hope your holiday celebrations were wonderful, relaxing ones.

Thank you for joining the WIPocalypse SAL. I'm stopping by to confirm that I've added you to the participant list (and to my personal blog reader). I can't wait to see your progress photos!

Wow! That is a big finish! You did a beautiful job! I also love your Bedford Falls Sampler! Playing in stash is like a kid playing in their sandbox, isn't it? I enjoy that, too!
