A Very Belated Happy New Year to all

I haven't posted since Christmas Day ..... how horrible of me. My apologies to all. The minor cold I had Christmas week developed into a sinus infection by the week after Christmas. I spent lots of time that week sitting or napping on my sofa -- myself, the box of Kleenex, a blanket handy when needed, and the cable TV remote control. Thought I was getting better by mid-week, but then woke up with another wave last Friday. I'm glad I was off work last week, but a little disappointed that I couldn't enjoy the time off a little more. Feeling better this week (now that I had to go back to work), but the sinus aches still lingering around so I finally went to doctor and am taking antibiotics to get rid of it (yes I know, I should have gone to the doctor end of last week.... what can I say, I'm stubborn).

I did get a little stitching done between Christmas and the end of the year while camping on the sofa in between naps and sinus headaches. I decided it was a good time to work on some Lizzie Kate UFOs. I started with the LK Double-Flips from early 2008 and stitched "LISTEN" and "LEARN". Then switched to the LK FlipIts from 2007 and finished February, stitched March, and started April. I did end 2008 close to my goal of 50 projects. My total for 2008 was 47 and all but one of those were started and finished in 2008. I almost had 48 finishes .... was trying to finish the 2007 February FlipIt by midnight on New Years's Eve. I had a few dozen stitches left as I watched the ball drop in New York on TV (with split screen showing the "ACORN" dropping in downtown Raleigh). I did finish it after the TV hoop-la was over, so my first 2009 finish was completed at approximately 12:22am Jan.1.

I haven't been on the computer much the last few weeks, about the only thing I did was check emails every day or 2 and I did change my blog background to something much more colorful and cute. Between tonight and tomorrow, I'll take some pictures of the recent finishes to share with ya.

Hugs to all.

47 is a heck of a number to complete - great stitching. And where are the pics of all those you finished are your first 2009 finish? We want to see! Glad to hear you're feeling better.
