I know it's been a long while since I
posted and I am not even sure that there's anyone interested in my blog
anymore, but I thought I would at least put up a post and tell you
This year was a very interesting year indeed.
We were blessed with a new grandson in July. Bryson Michael was born on July 28th! He's now 5 months old and is such a joy!
Our grand-daughter, Alena, is 2!
DH took a job 3 hours from here and commutes home on the weekend. So, I
am managing the homestead by myself during the week and commuting 90
minutes a day for my job which sure cuts into the stitching time. It
really was hard for about 6 months trying to come up with a rhythm. But,
I am getting better at managing my time so I have picked up a needle.
Mainly, I've stitched small things, ornaments, bowl fillers and the
like, I've stitched Little House Needleworks, Prairie Schooler Santas
and some Lizzie Kate. Time is such a premium during the week and I may
stitch an hour or two during the week so I do find a little time during
the weekend to stitch, usually Saturday and Sunday nights. I miss
stitching larger projects but I find it more gratifying to stitch
smaller things that seem to show some progress.
biggest thing I did during 2014 for my stitching is Stitching from
Stash. I was really good this year and didn't purchase too many
things. I challenged myself to stitch from my vast (ahem) collection
and I was so happy to do it! I have many beautiful things kitted up or
purchased that got put aside because of shiney new patterns. So when I
got that "itch" for a new purchase, I just went up and did some stash
fondling and found many treasures that I'd forgotten about. Now, I will
be purchasing some things in 2015 that I can't resist, thread, fabric
and my Prairie Schooler patterns. I also will keep an eye on my
favorite designers to see what they have to offer in 2015. So, I'm not
turning in my stash horder badge just yet!
2015, I will continue to Stitch from my Stash and I will once again
mainly stitch little things. I do have a couple of larger projects in
mind, I started Mary Gibson last year and will continue to stitch on
her and I have Jane Harris and Seven Sheep waiting for me.
Anyway, I just wanted to say Happy New Year to everyone that continues to visit here. I hope to post more this year coming and take pictures too.
Wishing you all the very best the New Year has to offer you and I hope that you are blessed beyond measure!
