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.
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.
