......a time for reflection and anticipation......counting your blessings and preparing for the future. We were blessed with a sweet, and unexpected, grand baby this past year and are preparing for a transition for my parents next year.
I have been pondering a strategy for my stitching next year. I see all the WIPGo's, exchanges, rotations and SAL's on FB and IG and I want to do it all!!! But my needlework is a stress reliever for me and these just start to make me feel overwhelmed. Sometimes I like a little structure and sometimes I like to fly by the seat of my pants. I'm just going to work on whatever I feel like at the time and not stress out about deadlines or time frames. What are your stitching plans/goals for 2023?
As for my recent stitching, I am working on a gift for a friend, so can't share at this time. However, I do have two stitchy related things to share. First is a shirt I found when I was visiting my daughter IN NC. Can you see why I bought it??
Next is my only surviving Lizzie Hi doll. I used to have quite a collection of these but they did not make the move to VA and wound up at Goodwill. You will see why I kept this one.
Funny story...I recently came across one of these, minus the basket, at a vintage store and picked it up for a friend for Christmas.
I wish each of you a happy, healthy and productive new year! Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
