UFO Finishes In 2010

I actually got some cross stitch UFOs and 1 needlepoint UFO finished in 2010. Here's the some pics

This is the Petite Sampler from

Sylvia's Little Heart SAL. This was really fun to stitch. Hardest part waiting for the next month!!!

Another one from Sorry the picture is sideways.

This is the oldest UFO I had. This one is needlepoint. I started this in the mid 70s. Worked on it on/off for years. I finished this yesterday 12/31/2010.

Mug Rug

I made this Rug Mug for my aunt for Thanksgiving.
 It's not the same size as the rest of the Mug Rugs you see on people's blogs.
Didn't want to give it up...but I did!!!
 I am going to make one for myself using the same fabrics.
Paper Pieced the top together, then hand quilted it.
I did reverse binding on this one...very easy.
 Give it a try if you haven't already.

Disney Sunshine

Thinking about Disney Sunshine on this gloomy, rainy, windy day in New England.
 Rain suppose to stop for tomorrow.
Last night we lost power for almost 12 hours. Can back on in the wee hours of Sunday.

Mash Potatos In Chicken Soup?

I made homemade chicken soup for dinner today.
 My family puts mashed potatos in our chicken soup. Helps cool it down a little and make it creamy.
Boy, Oh boy was it good!!!!

Sylvia's SAL My Little Heart

I found this SAL while surfing the web back in January. Didn't start with everyone else... but I've caught up. I can't wait for the next block to come out. I just think this is so darn cute.

Oriental Girl Bookmark

I found this chart on the web somewhere (dont' remember where). It is a cross stitch chart, but I used 10 mesh plastic canvas to make her. Isn't she cute?
