Anyway, in the words of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, you might want to get a 'hot beverage' and make yourself comfortable while you read this post!
So...goals for the year..
1. Have a stock of stitched cards already made up for those unexpected occasions or forgotten birthdays. I'm thinking of making at least one card every month to make sure I always have a card at hand.
2. To stitch every day - even if it's only one length of thread!
3. (Not so much stitchy, more of a crafty goal. ) To spend one weekend a month crafting. I received some beautiful handmade Christmas gifts and have decided to make lots of my gifts for 2012. Not sure what I will be doing for this, but I will certainly keep you updated!
5. To be more organized in my blog reading! So many blogs...so little time!
And keeping goal Number 5, I have to send you to Sarah's blog where she is having a fantastic giveaway with a PIF...such a cute design too!
As for my stitching, I'm still working on the Dieter's Prayer (keeping goal number 2!) - trying to coincide its completion with the finishing of the Christmas goodies!
Here's the newest addition to my website...
I thought it fitted in with the New Year, new beginnings theme. I stitched it on Fiddler's Light Oatmeal aida to give it a bit of an old-fashioned look. I'm contemplating stitching it again as a wedding gift as I think the words would be suitable - what do you think?
Here's a close up of the border design...
The colours haven't shown true in the picture, they are more dusty lilac like the heather is in Scotland!
The chart is available at www.TangledThreadsOnline.com along with some other new designs.
All the Christmas decorations are down and the house is back to normal, although we did seem to be missing a cat for a while....
