I only finished eight projects this year (seven cross-stitch and one needlepoint): five bookmarks (one needlepoint), one card, one planet (55×55 stitches), and one larger piece (163×163 stitches). I currently have no idea where some of the bookmarks are; I need to check my library books before I return them.

The one needlepoint bookmark was Fireworks. I really enjoyed working on this, and I think I should do more needlepoint.


The other bookmarks were Klimt’s Silhouette, Tulip, Tribal, and Red and Black. I’m still thinking of doing the other Klimt silhouette facing this one.

I completed this Water Garden for a birthday card for my sister; it only took me a year to finish.

I completed Neptune; someday, I will have all of the planets (assuming that he continues designing them; he has Mercury, Venus, and Uranus to go).


The one larger piece I completed was Geometric Dreams No. 1. I am happy I finished something larger than a bookmark, but I still need to wash it, iron it, and turn it into a pillow.
