As 2013 is drawing to a close…


imagesAs 2013 is winding down to the last 11 hours or so, I would like to take this time to wish all of my family and friends a Happy New Year!  I hope that 2014 is all that you want it to be and that all of your dreams come true.  This year really seemed to get away from me.  It went by in the blink of an eye.  I didn’t get to do all that I wanted nor see all that I wanted to see.  But all in all it was a pretty good year.  I set some really unrealistic goals for myself last year, so this year I am not setting any goals.  Not today, anyway.  I just want to have fun this year and not be stressed with deadlines and lists of things that have to be done.  I only completed one personal project this year.  That was “Emmy”, Emerald Mermaid.  I did several RR projects and stitching for others.  Even though my “2013 To Do List” was quite unreasonable, I had hoped to accomplish more.  So, this year, while I have many projects that I would like to do, I am not listing them.  I will stitch what I can and list them at the end of 2014.  I have received quite a few things in the mail in the last month, and haven’t had time to get on my blog to share.  I have been fighting the flu and bad cough for the last 11 days.  But I will share all of my goodies received  in my next post which will be next year, in 2014.  So for now, I wish you all a happy day, happy New Year’s Eve and Happy New Year!

Beautiful Result From a Yarn Give-away

scarfIt’s beautiful!  And the colors have that retro-Christmas look.  Great job Katherine!  Go here to read more about it.
