I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. All that work and then it seems over very quickly. We had a wonderful day and will continue the Christmas feelings all week as we prepare for my hubbies birthday on the 28th. Christmas was perfect. I won't bore you with details but would like to thank everyone for my lovely gifts. This year was much smaller than usual and yet it was just perfect. Everyone had a great time and what was received was truly appreciated.
I especially want to thank my boys for my Wii Zumba, and my hubby for my lovely lillies.
I also opened my final ornament from Maggee....isn't it perfect?
Well: what next?
I have set my goals for 2013 and have purposely kept them small.
The first is Santa's Village.
The second is to knit 200 blocks for an afghan.
The third is my 2013 Smaller SAL
Every two months we will feature a smaller blogging designer and stitch on of their charts: there will be a mixture of purchased pdf charts and free charts.
Our first chart is designed by Patty Carbaugh on Hanging by a Thread. It is a beautiful design.
Our second designer will be Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe and the third designer to contact me is Blue Ribbon Designs. Each time I will select 2-3 charts from each designer and we can vote on which to stitch. If you don't like a design then you don't have to stitch it. We will have around two months for each design so no rush. Pop along to the SAL blog if you would like to join in. The more the merrier, and please let people know about it as this is a great time to support our smaller, less commercial designers. If you know of a small designer then please let me know or perhaps you would like to off a chart for us to stitch. I am open to ideas!
The fourth goal is to do some RAKS. If you would like to be
considered for a RAK, just email me with your details and you will be
added to the merry bunch already there! My email
The fifth is the Needlework book: more fun than a goal
And the sixth and final goal are my seasonal exchanges. And that is it. Nothing more. More than enough methinks!
I don't think I will be back before next week: I have my hubbies party to prepare for and some stitching and plans to make for my new etsy shop.
So I will love you and leave you and wish for you all a peaceful and restful Christmas week.
