Happy New Year and a New Year Start!!!

Happy New Year to everyone!!!  I spent ringing in the New Year with my daughter last night while my DS and DH were at a Youth Lock In at our church!!!  So DD and I got Domino's pizza and settled in for the evening watching Castle Season 6 which was part of her Christmas present this year.  OF COURSE I stitched while watching it.  I were wondering!!  I couldn't let all that time watching/listening to the TV go to waste!

Now.....on to the stitching business.  WHAT am I going to start today???  I will start a new ornament for my son's Christmas present this year.  I did not get around to getting the kids' ornaments stitched for this past year so I am making it a priority for this year.  I had started DD but will finish it up today and start DS.  Then.....I am going to start a With Thy Needle and Thread January Word Play project.  I want to have these this year too.  So many little time.  I will definitely have to use my time more wisely in hopes of completing MORE projects than I did this past year.  I have 2 or 3 more finishes to add to my "Finished Projects List" and report back to you on that in another post......that will hopefully have some pictures to share!!

I have joined the Smalls SAL again this year from Heather at Stitching Lotus.  She had the sign up here recently and you can click on her link to see more about it.  Just scroll down. 

Did you get around to making your Stitching To Do List for this coming year???  I have.  I have my Ornament List and Stitching List all ready to go.  Now whether the Stitching List gets all completed is another matter but isn't all about the JOY of stitching and the JOURNEY  along the way!!!?????   I will continue on stitching a Just Nan up each month is one of my goals and if it takes a couple of months for a sampler of hers.....well that will be just fine too. 

Time for me to get off this computer and get to stitching for this New Year!!


  1. Happy New Year, Brenda! I love your first graphic with the heart tree. My lists have been drafted, my stitching journal for 2015 set up and ready to go. My January 1st project is ready as soon as I am able to sit down with my needle and thread.

    May your joy filled stitching journey be all that you want it to be.
