What’s up for 2013?


Hey, Friends!
Blogging friends are the best and RAoKs (Random Acts of Kindness) are SO special.  

I got an email from Cherie at 123 Stitch saying I had received a gift certificate, and after a little investigation discovered it was from Jackie of Scattered Threads.  A couple of Adam and Eve charts that were on my Wish List are now here with me! Again, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, Jackie. 

Have you seen the project bags made by Faye, the Carolina Stitcher?  They are not only beautiful, but made so well with great quality and excellent details!  And her precious scissor fobs – don’t you just love, love ém?  I sure do.  Thank you so much, Faye.  I’m thrilled and delighted.  If you’re interested in getting Faye to make some for you, click the link above and check out her creative finishing, too.   

Lots of you start a new project on New Year’s Day, and I usually do, too. The old wives tale says that whatever you do on New Year’s Day will be what you do throughout the year, and I don’t want to be starting lots of new projects, but rather finishing them.  This year I've decided to work on WIPs, so on New Year’s Day I’ll continue stitching on Mary Gibson, and not a new start piece.  I have done an inventory of sorts, and decided which of my WIPs will be on the list.  There are several that I’ll hang onto for a while before getting rid of them, but that is likely!  I do plan to continue with Country Cottage Needleworks, Santa’s Village.  Santa’s House and Poinsettia Place are finished and awaiting North Pole Post Office.

Thanks for stopping by, today and always.  I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
May your 2013 be filled with PeaceëLoveëJoy
and Happy Stitching!

  5. Yes, RAK's are too cool! And I agree, Faye does wonderful work! I started a new project for the new year... but it will NOT dictate what my year will be like... I am a woman, after all... prone to changing my mind on a whim! Hugs!

  6. Happy New Year to you too! Congrats on RAKs - such a nice thing for Jackie to do! I started a new small, but not on New Year's day. I want to do a small, work on a WIP and then do another small. Wish us both luck on finishing some of our WIPS.
