To say 2012 can't get here fast enough is an understatement! Imagine my delight when I saw that the challenge continues to 2012. However, my list is going to be kept to one project and one project only. I have done the math and can justify this so I can remain a part of the group! I will be celebrating the anniversary of starting this project 11 years ago come January. I finished two projects on my list before the wheels fell off the stitching cart (Polar Bear Snow Globe and Winter House, both by Bent Creek). So, if I take the 11, add the 2, that makes 13 so then I can just pull another two off my list if I finish the "bane of my existence": Lionesses by Stoney Creek (Stoney Creek - the two words in the stitching language that will cause gasps to be heard from those faint of stitching heart). One lioness is looking out across the Serengeti -- it took 11 years for her to get there so she's enjoying the view. The other, well, she can't look anywhere because she doesn't have a head. This, eventually, will be a gift for my son who asked quite politely for it when he was in first grade. He graduates in 2013. I would like to have it done so he can take it to college and have a reminder not to procrastinate. I asked him if I could just stitch a little red on the mouth of the lioness that has a head and make it look like the whole circle of life thing but he won't hear of it.
I'm officially proclaiming 2012 to be annus mirabilis - year of wonders - and the year of the Lionesses. Happy New Year to one and all!
