January 2013 WIPocalypse Check-In #1

Welcome to my first post of WIPocalypse 2013, my name is Christine. I am a mother of four. Three daughters and one son. Right now I am going to school to become a Registered Dietitian. I've enjoyed cross stitching since I was thirteen or fourteen, and have memories of my great-grandmother and her sister always with needles in their hands. I find that cross stitching helps me to relax! I live in Arizona now, but I am originally from So. California, and hope to one day be back stitching by the beach again. My focus piece for January has been Chatelaine's Desert Mandala. Here's an update pic with a couple more of the flowers stitched up.
Also I've been working on LHN "Snow Bunnies" from the 2007 JCS ornament issue.

Some of the WIPS that I hope to stitch more on are TW's Egyptian Sampler, and Mirabila's Queen Mermaid. Something new I'd like to start are the New Mirabilia's Roses of Provence, Chatelaine's Japanese Moss Covered Zen Garden, and after admiring this finished ORCHID inspires me to start Paris When it Sizzles by Dimples Design....SO I'm also looking for some inspiration, something having to do with the SEA possibly!! :D Thank you for stopping by!! Until next time Happy Stitching!

This post is also part of Theme-a-Licious 2013!
