A new year???

Okay, not exactly but close. The Lizzie's have started a SAL blog and some others have started blogs. I learned how to make cool backgrounds. That's my first attempt at a picture. Not so bad. As you can see we are enjoying (NOT) winter here and that is the view from my deck. Next step will be to share stitching pictures.

Lots has happened since May. I worked all summer. I bit off a little bit more than I could chew with the 1500 lines I mentioned in the last post, you know back in May, and I spent a good part of the summer in my office working. We got way back up and lost some of the work to another company. At first I was devastated due to the loss of money but then decided it was probably a good thing. I had no time to do anything else before. Now I don't obsess too much about work. I actually have had time to read and do a bunch more stitching.

I finished stitching Quaker Christmas and I must say I was pretty impressed with myself. I think this year I'm going to concentrate on some smaller things. I finally finished a Christmas present, did a freebie design for another friend. The first will definitely be a pillow, the second I'm not sure yet. Now I'm working on Workbasket's Quaker Owl.

That's it for now.
