New Years Eve 2012

Already the last night of 2012 is here and I cant believe it.  Not sure where the year went and I am sure that most of you are thinking the same thing.  I guess I should have stitched more, but what I finish I am pleased with!  Overall a great year for sure :)
I have more finished on DB, but not as much as I expected-- which is usually the same story for most of us also :)  Things have been a bit upside down if you will in the household and are finally calming down and getting back to normal.  Normal is as normal gets around here.  LOL.
I am hoping to finish the flowers and its pot tonight, I am looking at the long hours of stitching tonight and I am very excited!!!!  No big plans, we had some, but at last minute decided to stay in, warm and snuggly to watch a few movies and me, stitching.  YEAH!!!! 
I decided to iron this huge piece for fun and take a final Dec 31st, 2012 picture.  My goal is to get it done well before April 1st.  I think I can do it.  Since starting it for the 3rd time during the crazy start challenge of 2010, I decided to power it out picking it back up around the first of April 2012.  So if I can get it done before 4/1/13, I will have it completed in 1 year or less.  What do you think?  Possible right??!!

I have had my piece for the January 1st start for sometime now, it is going to be a nice small one.  That piece among the SDW sal I have fallen off the wagon on-- sorry ladies!!  And the Ann Bowers Attic sal, and the scarlet letter challenge, I have my year cut out for me!!!!
So farewell to 2012.  I hope all of you have a great night!  Looking forward to a fantastic 2013!!!!!

Happy New Years Eve :)
