Last finishes of 2008 and first of 2009

Saturday, 3 January 2009
Here's pics of my last 2008 finishes:

2008 Christmas Quilt:

Bargello Quilt:

Sue Hawkins Thread Keeper:

And here are my Just Nan 2008 tins completed:

Initial Stitching:

Four Tins:

Sizzle Tin and Pinwheel

I did the tins on New Years Day when I also finished Joyful Summer:

I did cheat a bit as I did quite a lot of stitching on Joyful Summer on New Years Eve but it's my first official finish of 2009 and my first Rotation success! I left off the French Knots and backstitching on the flowers as I don't really like it - apologies that the pic is a bit washed out, the fabric is a nice bright blue IRL.

I still have the 'In the Tin' projects to make up for the other three tins but I intend to slot them in soon.

Thanks for all your encouraging comments about my rotation and 2009 plans, your support is very much appreciated. Talking of which, Lindsay, your offer of a SAL for 4 Wishes is great but it's only scheduled for 1 week of attention from me this year so I think I will decline for now.

Blimey Joy - I can hardly keep up with reading these posts, let alone all the stitching, and quilting, you are doing! Was one of your NY resolutions to give up on sleep? Everything looks fantastic...I just love those JN tins. You really are off to a flying start to 2009 :)

Great finishes Joy! I love the bargello quilt and the tins look fabulous. I've never seen one of those Sue Hawkins thread keepers before (just the bookmarks) - what a great idea.
