All My Stitching 2013

It's May already, and I'm just posting a recap of everything I stitched in 2013.  Here it all is.  Everything here was begun and finished in 2013 except the Cottage Sampler, that was started in 2012.  Not too shabby for someone with carpal tunnel all year. (got that taken care of a couple of months ago).
A freebie from Little House Needleworks ( I love Raggedy Anns!)

A Prairie Schooler freebie:

A kit from a British Stitching Magazine last year:

May (I say hello)?

Robin successfully completed her first year of college, and turned 18.  Wow.  I am so proud of her!

 I had saved a draft of what I wanted to post with all of my stitching pics, but the draft disappeared!  I did participate in a Springtime Cross Stitch exchange through Dixie Sampler's blog, which was a lot of fun.  Here is a my wonderful package from Amy:
Here is the beautiful pin keep she stitched for me:
Here is what I stitched:
This little sweetie is from the new Spring kit from Lizzie Kate - Song of Spring.  The ornament was for my exchange partner, and then I also made the little scissor fob. 
More later!  Byzies!
