Well 2015 is winding down. Family, good friends, good times and good fortune are my memories. As 2015 comes to a close, I am wrapping up the completion of my EGA project, Pining to Stitch. This has been such an enjoyable project. Each piece small enough to be super manageable....that is until the Needlebook. This last piece is a bit more challenging and requires more attention and counting. I am ahead of schedule as far as the guild schedule on this project. I haven't decided if I will start the finishing or wait until we do it as a group in May and June
So my first project for 2016 will be the completion of this puppy.
My pledge for 2016 - not necessarily a 'resolution' - but I do hope to work on the basket of stitched projects to turn them into finished projects. I'd like to do one a month but will consider it a win if I manage six completed in 12 months! Not necessarily setting the bar low, just not wanting to overwhelm or pressure myself. That's my story. Anyway, it is an expansion of my pledge to myself to work from my stash rather than adding to my stash. Lord knows I don't need anyone going through my craft room when I die and saying "what in THE hell was she doing with all this".....I mean, my cohorts in stitching get it; my spouse surely would not. I do sometimes see dollar signs when I look at the rings and rings of WDW and GAST floss I have and think egads woman! I guess it really is a New Year's Resolution just by another name.
A couple of more quick finished to round out the year are what I am guessing are two pin pillows.
I have to say, my EGA Chapter has stepped it up the since last April or so with more interesting meetings, some new members and members are actually staying to stitch. (Kudos to you Karen and our Board!)
I am sure I can find some coordinating fabric in my stash to stitch this up as a pin
pillow as well. Maybe I can even do that before my next EGA meeting in January.
Hope you are all well and enjoying/enjoyed a fantastic holiday season.
Wishing you a happy, heathy, prosperous and stitch-filled New Year.
X's and O's to everyone.
