I've been thinking a lot about my stitching plans for 2019 and have made the following resolutions:
- I resolve to stitch at least five minutes every day.
- I resolve to make no lists, set no goals, but to stitch on whatever makes me happy at that moment.
- I resolve that there will be no rotations of any sort. I fail at them anyway, so why bother?
I was thinking about the annual New Start on New Year's Day, but then decided I would have a New Restart on New Year's Day.
And so, today, I have released Hannah Thornbush from her pillowcase and will restart her.
Here is where she is at the moment:
I went through the stitching basket yesterday and pulled out some things that I'm not feeling the love for and stashed them away. Then I went puttering around in the stash and pulled out some things that I was drawn to, brought them downstairs, and added them to the basket. I don't know when or if I'll work on any of them, but I'll have things handy when I feel like making a change.
Can I tell you how liberating it is to go into the year with no lists, no feelings that I "have" to finish anything? I may be getting over that first-born-girl-child streak of perfectionism and need for control, finally, at this advanced age!
