January 1 - happy new year, thinking, & changes already!
Happy new year! I hope everyone had a fabulous start to 2012!
We had a really good time last night, marking the new year with good friends, good food and lots of fun, dancing & just having a good time. We haven't done that in years...in fact, I don't even remember the last time we saw midnight in the new year!
Today, our day started with a trip to the emergency dental care place so hubby could get a tooth extracted. Fun! (not) Then it was home for hubby to watch football and off the LNS for me! It was a rare Sunday opening, and they were holding a couple of charts for me...the February CCN cottage and LHN's Elizabeth Hancock sampler. And then I had to buy a gazillion threads....some of which I know I have bought recently but put "somewhere safe". If anyone can tell me where that somewhere is, I would appreciate it. I know I can not be the only one who puts things there!
So, then I came home and read for a bit and fell asleep. And apparently I did some thinking while I was sleeping, because I woke up with all new plans for the new year.
Besides stitching, there are several things that I want to concentrate on for this year. One is working on my weight. I also have a stack of books already waiting to be read. And after my little fiasco with the threads today, it is time for some serious organizing of my stash. I also want to keep up better with my groups and participate more in all the fun things they do. And I have to pull out my sewing machine and start using it again for finishing.
So....the crazy 15 challenge as planned, has been scrapped. I still want to start those 15 projects this year, but not necessarily in the first 15 days. I might try to start a rotation, but not sure yet. I hope to start one new project each week, and hopefully still be able to take part in the fun SALs in my groups and keep up with my letters and posting and blogging. I have felt so disconnected this past year and I really want that to change.
We have a January 1 start SAL at Stitcher's Timeout, and I have decided to stitch LHN's Autumn Band Sampler for that, and I will get started on that tonight.
So we'll see what happens! And before I forget, Sarah is having a great giveaway on her blog...check it out...http://craftymoo-sarah.blogspot.com
