May your troubles be less,
Your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.
We had a very uneventful New Year's Eve. In bed well before midnight. Today I have spent most of the day stitching (between your typical household chores). I finished my first piece for the year. Actually, I planned it that way. I've been working on a square for CSFC (Cross Stitch For Charity) and knew I wouldn't get it done before the year ended. So I pushed on thru and finished it today. I also made a start on LHN's The Library. The SAL for this piece began today.
Now, back to the lists. I spent a bit of time going through what's been started and what's been kitted up as well as some committments I've made. Here are some well thought out goals for my new year:
two ornaments per month (LHN Ornament SAL and Bride's Tree Ornament SAL)
Prairie Schooler ABCs SAL
LHN Travelling Stitcher SAL
LHN THe Library SAL
Brooke's Books ABCs SAL
at this point I am not participating in any exchanges. I will limit them to 4
