PHD Stitching for 2012

Today was our last day with Kyleigh.  We didn't do much today besides watching TV, painting, cutting and taping and taking a long nap.  Janice picked her up about 4:00 and the three of us went shopping since Kyleigh was running out of pants--she's really hard on clothes.  We went to the Outlets at the Block and got her several pairs of leggings, some long sleeve shirts, a skirt and shirt combo, a nightgown and a dress.  We also got her some new earrings. 

I spent some time going through my PHD (Potential Happy Dances, also know as WIPS/UFOs) projects so that I could "plan" my stitching for 2012.  Here is what I came up with (in alphabetical order):
12 Days of Christmas - Margaret Sherry
Angelic Ornaments - Dimensions Kit (There are eight angels altogether)
Ballerina Kitten - Dimensions (No Count) Kit

Butterfly Whimsy - Dimensions Kit
Christmas at the Beach - Gold Collection Mini
Crabapples, Lemon & Berries - Borderline Towels booklet
Christmas Cutie - Cross Stitch Card Shop #81 (Cover Kit)
Denim Darlings Bib - For the Love of Cross Stitch - March, 1998

Let Freedom Ring - Sunset Kit
Majestic Eagle - Sunset Kit
Tinkerbell - Disney/Thomas Kinkade Kit
Tropical Paradise - Mill Hill Kit

I have approximately 75-80 PHDs, but these are the ones I'd like to complete this coming year.  Several of them don't have a lot of stitching left so should be completed quickly.  I plan to either work on them on the weekends or do an every other week rotation similar to what I've been doing the past few months.  

I also have the HAED, Seaside Victorian that I'd like to continue stitching, but probably won't finish and my current WIP, One in a Million (Precious Moments) if it's not completed by tomorrow night and at this point it doesn't look like it will be.

In addition, I have several charity commitments and would like to do a bunch of small Christmas ornaments.  I also have a couple more projects that will be added to the list, once some of these are completed.

Love the PHDs. If I finish some of my stitching I have lined up for 2012 I am going to get out the Margaret Sherry charts and get those started.
