Elvis, Elvis, let me be,

Keep that pelvis far from me!

Quick! What movie was that line in?!

But seriously, I forgot to tell you in the last post that Elvis spoke to me while we were in Vegas. I'm serious! I'm not delusional! In our walks at the Venetian trying to find places, we happened to run into an Elvis impersonator! As he passed by us, he said to me "how ya doin' darlin'". Eek! I smiled the rest of the day over that!

I picked up another WIP that was a Crazy start in January. Here's The Journey..
Designer is LHN. And how it looked almost a year ago...
I'm enjoying this one. My plan is to stitch on each WIP until they are DONE! We'll see how far that goes, lol.

As I do about this time of year, here is my reading for 2016..
I'm sure I'll be adding to this pile throughout 2016. My Shelfari account says I read 22 books in 2015. Wow, I didn't think I read that much since I stitched a lot!

I counted up my finishes and the total came to 25 with 15 of those DUCJ/FSAL2015 finishes and 10 non-Crazy finishes. And most of them are waiting to be finish finished or framed. 

Thanks for hangin' with me!

    2. I remember where I was and how old I was when I watched Grease when it came out. I can still watch it too, at least twice a year :) I haven't been in a stashing mood lately and that's been good!

    1. As far as books on tape go, I'm afraid I'm stuck in the late 19th century! I have a few books on my iPad but after dropping my iPad on my face after drowsing off, I prefer a book in my hand!

  9. I loved Discovery of witches - I hope you enjoy it. It's hard sometimes for me to decide do I want to stitch or read. Thank you for sharing your reading goals as well as your stitching

    1. Have you read the other three books in the trilogy? Wish it could have gone on and on. I'm the same, undecided about what to stitch or read!

  10. Ha-ha!! Love that Elvis quote :) I've never seen that chart, Shelly so I look forward to watching your progress... Great job with both the stitching and reading in 2015--on to 2016! Hope it's a happy, healthy year for you and your family :)

    1. Thank you, Carol! Hope the new year is much better for you and your family. There's a nice story behind this chart told by the designer that has to do with her husbands cancer treatment.

  11. Stitching on your WIPs until they are done - a good plan indeed. Let's hope that that there aren't too many new things that attract your attention so that you add to your number of WIPs instead, lol.
    Happy New Year and enjoy your stitching.

  13. Good luck with the finishes. I think that's great goal. I am pretty much an anal stitcher. I usually stitch one at a time. It's the finishing that gets me!

    1. Hi Barb. Well, if that's what it's called, I'm joining the Anal Stitchers League! I have a whole bunch of WIPs but only stitching on one until I'm done and then move onto another. Less stressful this way! Hope your back is doing better.

  14. Nice work and good reading list/pile? I read Bones of Paris, let me know what you think. I will say I enjoy her Mary Russell series more. Did you read the first one in the Styvesant series? Touchstone I think it's called?

    1. Thanks. I got Bones of Paris from the borrow bookshelf at work and it sounded interesting. I've never read this authors stuff so it'll be the first time. I'll have to check out the Styvesant series. Thanks Tiffany!

  15. I see we have the same plans for 2016 :) I also want to finish all my WIPs and I have a book list to read this year. Good luck with your plans. Lovely stitching! Happy New Year!
