How quickly time passes...

Next weekend is Lily's first birthday. I honestly can't believe how quickly the year has gone! People tell you to enjoy every minute as they grow so fast, and I now know just how true that really is.

It really has been a marvelous year though, and I have truly made the most of each and every second I've had with my sweet Lily. She's quite the little person now with a cheerful and loving personality. I feel truly blessed :)

Below is the invitation I threw together for her birthday this coming Saturday. Should be a fun time with a handful of close friends and family. I'm looking forward to watching my little "Bean" grow into the darling girl I know she will be...

Christmas Stitching

So it figures that Christmas has come and gone, and yet I chose now to finally pick up and make headway on my Better Homes & Gardens Stocking:

I know I've said this before, but I really DO want this year to be a year of many of the finishes I need to get done are those that are to be presents for next Christmas. So here's my intended list:

  • Finish BH&G Christmas Stocking (to be determined who gets it)
  • Finish Nora Corbet's Letter L (for Lily)
  • Finish baby sweater (for Becky & baby Owen)
  • Finish Chatelaine Alhambra (for mom)
  • Start & Finish BH&G Christmas Stocking (for Lily)
  • Start & Finish BH&G Christmas Stocking (for me)
  • Start & Finish BH&G Christmas Stocking (for John)
  • Start & Finish BH&G Christmas Stocking (for Abby)
  • Finish HAED Babysitting (for me)
  • Finish HAED Summer (for Becky)
  • Start & Finish Knitted Baby Blanket (for Lily)
