Step in the right direction

So far so good...I reached my first stitching goal of the new year! {Happy Dance, Happy Dance, Happy Dance} to have 20 stitches in 6 of my ornies for the year by Tuesday (today).  Got that done last night.  See Pics below!

What's new inc. kit
Now to my next goal.  On Nov 16th I blogged about my Patriotic Love Quilt Square {sorry don't know how to add a link to a particular post } I have a habit of getting frustrated with myself and laying things aside and that's exactly what I did with it~~ ugh!  Anywho, my goal is to have it finished and in the mail by Jan 16th.  Technically its not due until March 1, but I have another square due then too, so I must stay on track!!!!!!  {due to technical difficulties beyond my control I cannot update a pic tonight--tried 5 times then gave up}

I'm off to work on my Patriotic Square.  Happy Stitching Everybody =)
