not the way I planned to start stitching the new year!
Not sure why I thought any "plans" I might have made would go smoothly...
The stitching plan was to start the 2015 Prairie Schooler Santa on New Year's Eve...the pattern didn't come in time and my grandson spent the night and we welcomed in the new year together. New Year's Day was to find me starting Crazy Socks from Rosewood Manor...but that day was spent playing with my grandson and continuing nursing the hubby through a bout of vertigo. Today we woke up to snow falling...something that doesn't happen too often here, and I spent a lot of time "thinking" about what I should stitch, finally filling in our 2016 wall calendar and wondering how/if I could get to work tomorrow.
I finally picked up a needle and thread when I found this little ditty while searching for something else. It is Lizzie Kate's Did You Ever Stop to Think...seemed appropriate! I did some sleuthing and realized that I started this in January of 2011 (yikes!) as part of one of those 'start a bunch of new designs in January' challenges. You can see that I didn't get very far that January! Hopefully, it will get finished this January!
I hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2016! Did everyone start a new piece on New Year's Day?
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog!
