Reflections from 2015...

I honestly cannot believe that today is the last day of 2015...
I swear, it feels like the year just started and here it is ending.
(Where does the time go...)

I haven't gotten as much done as I was hoping to this year, but I still had a lot of fun working on projects, blogging and getting to read posts by fellow stitchers. 
I am definitely looking forward to the new year, new projects and new stitching challenges.

So now, to wrap up my year in stitching...

...My final ORT collection of 2015...

It ended up being quite the collection of threads and yarn.  (Not sure if that is a good thing, since I didn't actually get that much stitching done, but it sure did look pretty.)

And, I managed a final finish for 2015...
 I was able to finish the stitching on my "kit-tea" project last night and I think it came out quite cute.

I am hoping to frame the piece and hang it in my office (once my office is finished).

Lastly, a picture of the back of the piece...
The project was stitched on 14ct. white Aida cloth.

So, I managed to finish 4 pieces this year ("kit-tea", "flower power" design 1, "cabin" design 1 and the Scooby Doo gang)...
I had hoped for more, but I am proud that I finished at least some projects. (Now to get everything framed.)

I also started a new project...

I've had this kit for awhile and finally decided to give it a whirl.

Not a whole lot done, but it is a start.

Oh, I had forgotten to share another start...

I began working on cabin #2 in September and just never got around to posting.
(The design is from Issue 176 (May 2013) of "Cross Stitch Crazy" magazine.)

Well, that is it on the stitching front for today...
...I did want to share a few pictures that I took this morning...
(I thought they were kinda pretty and I really do enjoy taking photos.)

It is nice to finally have some snow covering the ground.
(I quite missed the snow this Christmas.)

Anyway, I hope everyone has a fantastic New Year's Eve and a great start to 2016!
