I'm back!

Hi all

I'm back from my trip to my parents house. Was nice to get away but good to be home too! my girls & I had a great visit with my parents and had a lovely couple of days catching up with a stitching buddy too!
I no sooner got home then it was off to the tennis in Sydney for the first day of the Medibank International! Boy was it hot there and despite lashings of sunscreen I still managed to get burnt arms! Here's a pic of Serena Williams in her first match! She was playing Sam Stosur who almost beat her, it was a very exciting match!
On the stitching front, I've been taking advantage of "guilt free January" and have started loads of new projects!! Here's a list of what I've started so far:

Dec 29 - Jeanette Douglas Designs - Winter Stitches
Jan 1 - Victoria Sampler - Jingle Bells Christmas Tree Farm
Jan 5 - The Trilogy - Family
Jan 7 - The Drawn Thread - The Acorn Sampler
Jan 12 - Little House Needleworks - Reading
Jan 13 - Shepherds Bush - Spooky Spots
Jan 13 - Just Nan - Bee Hive Violets
Here's a pic of my progress on VS Jingle Bells Tree Farm:
Well that's all for me for now, I'm off to dig some more in the stash and see what other projects I can come up with to start this month!! My goals for the rest of the year will be to finish all of these new starts as well as my pre-existing wip's!!

Happy Stitching all!

Amanda
