2011 - A Stitching Review

I totally forgot to do this, Anne! That's what I get for procrasitinating. LOL!!

Before getting into it, I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and encouragement about my stitching. I truly appreciate and look forward to each and every comment. Wishing us all an awesome stitching year in 2012. Smokin' needles, here we come!! :D

I'm so pleased with how much I've accomplished in 2011 on the stitching front. It was nice to revisit the finishes for this post and I can only hope that I'll be able to do as well in 2012.
