January 1st, new year,new beginnings, resolutions galore. Am I making any? You betcha! Will I keep them.....debatable. One resolution...and one so many to get in better shape. To that end I would like to start walking/hiking more. I usually plan to start this every year and never seem to keep at it. But, I do have a little more motivation in the form of these two adorable faces.

Another goal was to start a blog to record my stitching projects, progress, finishing, woes etc.....and maybe a little of my "other" life as well. Someone once told me a blog was a good way to document your life, as an on line diary of sorts for your children/grandchildren. I am entering my 60th year.....and NO....I can't be that old...and mind wanders and forgets things. So hopefully, this will keep a record of sorts for me.

To start off the New Year, I have picked a new project to begin. I really have no business doing this as I have a hoard of PIP's ....projects in progress (I've never really liked the term "UFO's"--- my stitching is definitely more than an "object"). So...drum roll please....I have decided on The Regal Bee by Heart's Ease Examplar Workes. This was given to me by a friend in October and has been calling my name since. 
I will be starting this in a bit while watching the Ravens....Go Ravens..Bengals game. 

So, welcome to my blog. A Happy New Year to you and yours. And I'm off to help take down the outside Christmas lights


  1. Wow Stasi!
    what a wonderful way to start off the new year
    and what a lovely opportunity for me to keep
    track with you and your progress.
    Good Luck

  3. Now I'll be able to keep track of all your projects...AND, maybe you will inspire me to devote more time to my own needlework projects. Have fun with the blog!


  4. Glad you decide to start a blog - it really is a lot of fun seeing what everyone is doing. You'll meet lots of nice people too!
