New Years Resolutions are not something I suscribe too. Preferring to instead set some small personal goals or intentions which cause no extra pressure to achieve or not.....but give me things to contemplate.
2017 bought many blessings, new adventures, anxieties and some sad losses.....no different from many others on this journey called life.
With the losses came the unexpected blessing of discovering just how fortunate I have been to walk a way with beautiful souls....terribly missed they will be but forever with me in my heart nonetheless. This brought up much thought about being thankful in spite of it all.
I decided to begin the New Year with a little treat for myself....a brand new Gratitude Journal....a hopeful and uplifting way to begin each day.
My other intention for this year is a UFO challenge planned by fellow Sunday Stitchers De. A list of 12....one per month......you may choose to work on the item or go for a finish. It's up to you. A number is chosen each month at our meeting and you work on the corresponding project to that number......
My list.....excuse handwriting.
I had hoped to use Country Garden Thread "Harriet" for these blocks but unfortunately it looked awful......unsewing happened! So I chose instead my next favourite "Mistletoe" It does look very nice in real life! Excuse the photo....storm approaching and its gotten very dark lol!
Hopefully I can successfully complete January's challenge and finish this block.
Another Angel Story block has been completed in the mean time....."Pot Planting Penelope"
I would like to thank all of you that pop by and visit me, leaving lovely comments or personal emails, those of you who read my words and thoughts or perhaps a friendly lurker. You are all very welcome. I am always amazed and heartwarmed at how we as women can encourage and support each other with affection, laughter and a generosity of spirit. Not to mention a big dose of graft and corruption in the beginning of a new project domain :) All under the guise of Scrap Busting!
You constantly inspire me with your incredible creativity and caring.
I am looking forward to sharing, laughing and connecting with you again in this brand new year.
