Happy New Year!

I know I haven't blogged in a while, sorry. I was off from work Dec. 17th through today. Lots of company and visiting over the holidays. I hope your Christmas and New Year holidays were fantastic, and all your fondest dreams came true!
I'm posting pictures today of the progress I've made with my projects over the holidays.
First up is Curly Tailed Rosey, hadn't touched her since Feb. of 2008! HAED had a SWIP/UFO SAL this weekend so it was the perfect time to get her out. I had a page happy dance! This is page 1 completed and page 2, 3, and 4 started.
Next is Lil Blue Fairy Cat. I wanted to finish him before the new year, but that just didn't happen. I don't have far to go though, so maye this year...

Next up is a new start for the new year! Bewitched, artwork by Katerina Koukiotis. This is what it will look like. It was RAK from Becky (rlj1217 from the HAED BB). Thank you Becky!!!! This is my first black & white chart start. I am stitching it with Vikki Clayton silks! The fabric is SMF, 28 ct. Jubliee, the color name is Squall. It's a very light grey.

Here's what my start looks like. It's hard to get a good picture of this one. The silk is really shiny IRL. It's a pleasure to stitch!

So that's it on the stitching front! I start back to my Spin classes today. I'm starting slow, with 2 classes a week. I'll see how that goes for a bit before getting back to my normal 6 classes per week. It'll feel good to finally get back!
I hope to post again tomorrow with Christmas Cat pics!
