I may have gotten carried away.
- Christmas Bookmark from Fern Ridge Designs, one of the Christmas in Williamsburg gifts from several years ago--stitched several years ago and stuck in the finishing basket since.
- "Be a Busy Bee" scissor fob, make-it-take-it from Jackie du Plessis
- Button box, also Jackie du Pless
- Black Bird Scissors Fob, Catherine Theron
You may see a pattern here. I tend to grab a lot of Jackie's small kits in the boutique at Christmas in Williamsburg, now known as Annie's Needlearts Festival. I use them for travel projects since they're easy to pack and transport, without the need for big frames or frame stands.
The problem is that I can easily stitch them when away from home, but I can't easily finish-finish them unless I am home. So, today I decided to grab a stack and do as much as I could before my eyes crossed.
My eyes have crossed.
On to other events: Dearly Beloved and I, being total fuddy-duddies, are not out and about celebrating the New Year. I am staying awake only to have the ceremonial dumping of the ort jar at midnight. I expected it to be more colorful this year but apparently I used more blues and whites than I thought.
I'm making one resolution this year. I'm setting some goals for myself, which I don't consider resolutions since resolutions are, by some kind of cosmic irony, made to be broken. I think I can keep this one, though--I resolve to continue puttering in my stash and with various workshops and classes, stitching whatever strikes my fancy whenever my fancy is struck.
That should work.
