Happy New Year!
This is going to be a red-letter year for me. I will be retiring. And this means that I will finally have daylight hours for stitching every day and not just on week-ends and holidays and vacations--time to create and stitch and do all the things that working full-time interferes with.
I've been online looking at all the projects people completed last year. I have piles of UFO's and WIP's instead, with not many completed projects to show for the time I've spent stitching. Now, there is no way at all that I can make a dent in those piles before I retire, but I can focus on them--so that is how I plan to start the new year.
I also want to work on some of my more challenging projects, and get some finishing done.
I am not making resolutions about this. I am not making lists, or setting up a rotation, or making rules like I have to finish five things before I can start something new. And I will likely start a few new things before I retire, and I know I have two big new projects that will be underway before the next New Year rolls around.
But I plan to start the year with UFO's and WIP's.
Today I did the gold and silver thread on the second of the Golden Accessories:
