Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

As we wind down 2014, thinking about all our blessings and our family and friends, what a year.
Being able to spend time with family and friends have been wonderful.
I have been able to spend a little time stitching this year and have enjoyed learning new stitches and finishing(thanks to Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher). So many new designs keep appearing and added of course to my to do list. I have also be lucky in winning floss and patterns this year. My latest was one of Victorian Motto Sampler 12 days of Christmas Give A Way. I won a chart of my choice for me and a friend. I choice the Merry Christmas Sampler. Also, I was in several exchanges during the year and received a number of great ornaments, cross stitch and other handmade. I am wishing all of you a wonderful 2015 with a lot of time to stitch and craft all year.
I did get another ornament finished for a gift and a little stitching done on a few of my WIPs.
Here are the pictures for the week.
