HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year to all my stitchy friends.

I suppose I should do a wrap up of 2012 like so many others do but I'd rather look forward to 2013!
But a quick recap won't hurt. I did a have a few really great things in 2012. I made a good friend through stitching and this blog. I accomplished a satisfying amount of stitching. I was RAK'd a number of charts that I love and didn't think I'd have any time soon, if ever. I even bought 2 charts. So many charts came my way this year in fact, that I now have a stash of charts that I long to stitch. I also started a number of them so I have too many WIP's.
For Christmas Teresa and Molly (Happy Birthday Teresa!) sent me 2 charts to cheer me up. They didn't arrive for Christmas due to a glitch but shortly afterward they were in my E-mail. And cheer me up they did.
Here they are.
Too Hot:

And QS Blue Butterfly:

There were losses this year. We lost my father-in-law this year and I just worked my last day on Thursday due to cutbacks, there were a lot personal and financial problems (car still not repaired) and things look just as bad, and really worse, this year, but somehow I feel hopeful.

2013 begins with my DH's Birthday tomorrow. Then there is the 2013 HAED SAL on the 4th.
There will be lots of job hunting, and who knows what I will find? Something wonderful I hope.
I have all of those WIP's to keep me busy, certainly enough for a few years. I am looking forward to all of that stuff and more. Maybe some sewing, and possibly losing a few more pounds. I've lost 3 in the past 2 weeks, unplanned but welcome. Pulling down wallpaper in the living room. All sorts of silly things like that.
I reorganized all of my stitchy stuff, so no stitching this weekend until today hopefully. I think I may have messed up with the organizing since I think it will slow me down till I get used to everything. Live and learn. lol.

So what are you looking forward to this year? Got anything you want to do? I'm not making resolutions, but I have some ideas of things I'd like to change.

Happy New Year and Happy Stitching everyone. Peace and Love.

I hope that 2013 will be a better year for you. I have made no stitchy goals for 2013 though, so will just be stitching my rotation.

I can think of a few things that 'need changing' myself. Happy New Year, really, you're so positive it is a real pleasure to come read your blog. I hope you have the best year ever.

I hate to hear what a tough time your having. I know from experience how incredibly hard it is not to have transportation. I wish you luck in your job search, just hang in there and don't give up.
As to the stitching, I imagine anyone would be thrown off their game by everything happening in your world right now. It will settle and then you will show us what wonderful things you've worked on.
Wishing you the happiest of New Years filled with blessings and all things good.
