Final post (I think) for 2016.....

The reason I say I think it is my final post for 2016 is that I am still going to continue to stitch until it is time to ring in the New Year.  But I can leave you with at least one more JN Whimzi post and my final ORT jar picture since I forgot to take it the other day for my TUSAL report.

I stitched up HO HO HO from the JN 3 Santa's chart.  I just LOVE this chart and they do stitch up very quickly.

The solid whimzi frames tend to show a reflection in them.  I tried my best to get a good picture of this little one that I am about to go hang on my little Whimzi tree.  I'm trying to fill it up and I have several more gold and silver frames.  It's the "time" that I need to find some days.

Here is my ORT jar.  All filled to the top.

My "Finished Projects List" shows me at a total of 70 projects this year!!!  WOOHOO  I love it!!  I always try to compete against my previous year's total so I really have set the bar high for me next year.  WOW!!  I amazed myself as I just write them down as I finish them and I guess I just haven't paid attention to the total until just yesterday.....which is what made me want to stitch just 1 more quick small project!!!

Now I need to go and write up my 2017 Birthday Gift List and 2017 Ornament To Give list so I know exactly when I have completed everyone's birthday and Christmas ornament for the year!

I'm off to stitch the night away!



  1. What a sweet Santa finish, Brenda! I just finished my last project (Glad Tidings) for 2016. Your ORT jar looks great. Will you toss them or do you save them? Happy New Year, my friend!

  2. Congrats on the cute finish Brenda.

    Happy New Year,

  3. Hope you had a fun night stitching 70 finishes is a fantastic total! Hope you stash it this year. Best wishes for a very happy 2017.

  4. How sweet! Happy New Year Brenda!

  5. You did good for 2016! That is a great idea about making the lists now... to keep track! Hugs!
