First Finish 2010!!

Here it first finish of 2010!  "Crossword Hedgehogs" from Margaret Sherry by way of Cross Stitcher Magazine's Sports and Hobbies series.
I put that last stitches in this little beauty at 9:42 pm last night.  I am stitching this on 18x27 Country French linen 32 ct.  This is also the first finish that I have had on LINEN!!!!!!  There will be more finishes added to this fabric.  I have the next chart all ready to start and I will start that tonight.

Here I am in Atlanta at my favorite stitching heaven "Abcedarius" in Marietta Ga. This was one of the highlights of my trip, although I did not do any HARD stashing. I just picked up a few odds and ends.
The kids had tons of fun visiting with all of their cousins, aunts, and grands. I thought I would get a ton of stitching done, but sadly that was not to be. There was NEVER enough light. I really missed my pink stitching lamp.
The whole time that I was gone, I was pining fir what I thought was the warmth of home. Wouldn't you know that when we came back Orlando was in the middle of the longest cold snap EVER. (It's still going on BTW) BURRR!
So in short, there are no stitches to show in this update, although there will be very shortly. I hope that this post finds you happy and in great spirits.
