It is a brand new year. We are full to the brim of black-eyed peas and cabbage (smothered and coleslaw). Unlike the rest of the country, the holiday season is not over for us. We will be celebrating Epiphany on January 6th with the start of king cake season. The season will be long this year since Mardi Gras is not until March 8th (although parades begin the first weekend of February).
In two days, I will have completed my first year of blogging. I did not make the progress I had hoped for with my stitching (I did set my sights a little too high), but I made more progress than I have in past years and was inspired to try my hand at knitting and other creative endeavors. Thanks to all the blogging stitchers for your support, encouragement and a little case of stitching envy (but in a good motivational way).
I am looking forward to another year of stitching and sharing with all my blogging buddies.
Several other stitchers have taken on the Flip'n Crazy January Challenge to complete 15 already existing WIPs this year. I plan to join them with the seven (7) WIPs below.
Floral Initial "A"
Stoney Creek "Pear"
Fleur de Lis 2
(I do not have a posted progress photo)
"At Home with Jane Austen"
The Sampler Girl
"Home of a Needleworker, Too"
Little House Needlework
