I hope you all had a great start to the new year. As promised, here is my finished January sheep blanket. I ordered my threads for the February and March blankets over the weekend at the Stitching Bits & Bobs sale. I’m risking not getting them in time by ordering from them, but I couldn’t resist the sale. I spent New Year’s Day stitching on my Lemon Meringue Sampler while watching the Rose Parade. I must have been watching the parade more than what I was stitching because that brown “vine” was ripped out twice before I finally got it right.
I picked this back up not only in the interest of finishing another WIP, but also because I anticipated having my next RR to stitch on. It still hasn’t shown up, so I will keep stitching on this for now. I hope that I am not going to be too pressed for time to get the RR stitched in order for me to not send out late also. So, I didn’t want to work on anything too involved since I figured I would have had to put it down by now. Oh well.
I haven’t set resolutions for myself this year, other than to continue working on my 101 Things list, continue my workouts and weight loss and stitching more. And in the interest of keeping up with my workouts, I thought I would join Rosemary in her Walk to Rivendell. As of today, I have left Bag End and made it 1.5 miles “following the hedgerows south”. The gym actually wasn’t packed today like I expected. It was only regulars there…we’ll see what next week will bring.
I am grateful for new beginnings.
