First finish of the year

I sat down around noon with Christmas Angel and didn't put the last bead on til 9:30. I had stopped to eat and us e the bathroom but otherwise that is all I did. I was determined to finish her tonight.

I loved stitching on her and I don't know why she had become a UFO. I have more of these angels to stitch. Spring Angel I started a while back as well.

So I sat and watched TV all day. Some were on the DVR
Ice Age:A Mammoth Christmas
Happiness is A Warm Blanket Charlie Brown
Desperately Seeking Susan
Dead Silent - Lifetime
Family Sins - Lifetime
and there is another movie on Lifetime that I have started watching but can't remember the name
General Hospital

I am hoping my next finish will be SamSarah Designs The 1892 Pledge. I will be working on that starting Monday. 
For the rest of the year, the week of the 25th of each month will be my oldest UFO. Rocky  Mountain Christmas by Marty Bell.

Thanks for looking and all compliments are appreciated.

Christmas Angel is gorgous! Great Finish. I am not sure I could sit that long, these old bones of mine! I stitch in half hour sessions.
Happy Stitching
