This is Hip Hob by Lizzie Kate. I started the new year with a new project. I want to make sure that I complete each project. So, if it is supposed to be a pillow then I make it a pillow. I also want to frame as many projects as I can. I completed this project in 3 days using the materials that came with the kit. When Easter came around I used it as a decoration.
My parents had their 50th wedding anniversary in March. So I decided to stitch a wedding sampler for them. This wedding sampler is in Leisure Arts' Marriage Keepsakes Leaflet. I have stitched this a couple of times for friends. Once in a deep purple and in mauve. This time I use an old gold color on a cream linen for Mom and Dad. My sister Jennifer framed it and my mother loved it.
I also worked on a project from my mother's WIP's. It is Welcome Friends from the Welcome Silhouettes leaflet. At first I thought my mom wanted the pineapple silhouette, but she had already stitched it. She wanted this one. It is stitched with DMC Ecru on blue fabric. I don't think I will be stitching on blue fabric again for a while. It is hard to see.

Last spring break I was waiting on my family to enter the condo for the week. I was walking around Michael's on the coast and came across some Zentagle materials on the end cap. They were on sale, so I bought them to try it out. I have since come to love it. This year I have given some drawings as gifts to my friends and co-workers. Everyone has loved the pictures.
Now, every year I try to set a goal of something to complete. This year my goals were to complete Mirabillia's Rose of Sharon and to complete all of the clotheslines by Raise the Roof. I have completed 3 of the 10 that are available. I completed Turkey Dressing last year, Clean & Green, and Peter's Cotton Knits this year. I started Sam's Socks, Shorts, and Such yesterday. I will post a picture later. I didn't have the Love's Laundry before Valentine's Day or it would also be complete. I will work on it after I have completed Sam's clothesline.

Another of my goals is to start posting on a regular basis again. I plan on posting every Saturday. So come back next Saturday to see what I have completed.
