UFO's and un-started ufo's

Well here goes, these are just 4 of my ufo's, that I really some much want to finish this year. Sorry ladies, but as I do not quilt, yet.. (Though, I think Sheila has different idea's about that) I love my cross stitch. It has always been my greatest love. Apart from my compie, and my scrapbooking that is.

Number 1.
I started these japanese cranes for hubby last year for his birthday (Feb)

Number 2.
This is my pink orchid, Started about 6 months ago.
A DMC freebie pdf. file, if anyone is interested, from their web site.

Number 3.
The Fairy Grandmother by Lavender and Lace.
My daughter Emma brought all the threads and fabric for me to do, She is part of a set of 3 that I have been doing. The Fairy Queen, Done, framed and on the lounge wall. The Stargazer, half done, and 1000 seed beads to sew on her.

Number 4.
This is "Sebastian Rose"
A kit brought as a birthday present for my other daughter Sara who loves cats.
I have opened the kit, so I think that is now classed as a UFO!!!!

There are quite a few other ufo's in my cupboard, but these are what I really want to do for now, to get started.....
But January is the month to finish The Stargazer, If I am a good girl and work hard on her, she should be finished in 2 or 3 weeks... or she will end up as a ufo.
My New Years Resolution is - To Finish what I start. Forget the other thoughts about saving money, doing housework, changing the bed, eating healthy and diets and so on. I never manage to keep them. So this year I only have one to keep. That should, in theory, be easy. ROFL.

Hi, I am Margaret from America, I took your post off Molly Browns, hope you don't mind. I like your Fairy Godmother, but I like them all. I would like to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year. I would like to say I envy anyone that has talent to create things with their hands.
