I hope everyone is embracing the new year ~ not like we have a choice in the matter :)
I normally don't make a New Year's resolution, but last year I chose a word ~ PURGE. My goal was to purge one item daily. I started off pretty good for the first few months, and then it all went to hell in a handbasket. Oh, well. Maybe this year I can do a little better. Then again, maybe not. Was out antiquing the other day and found this sweet little wagon. Not sure what I will do with it, but it was 50% off and I love a bargain!
I am undecorating. Or is it dedecorating? I am so thankful things come down much more quickly than they go up. Then I have to redecorate. I'm my own worst enemy. I may never learn that less is more.
I have two year end finishes. Unlike a certain unnamed person over at Woodland Junction, I consider it a finish if the hooking or stitching is done :) Old Hearts is a pattern by The Old Tattered Flag. Started in a class with Caroline Twigg (Eagles Nest Woolens) in October, it is finally ready for the binding.
I don't cross stitch often, but when I do I really enjoy it. Friend Bobbie (the Evening Stitcher) inspired me. I found a piece of linen in my stash, lightly stained it and stitched away. Pattern is by Pineberry Lane. It looks a little wonky because the piece has not yet been pressed.
Poor Cindy Lou Who is not getting better. She's on day 8 of a 14 day med for a UTI and it is not working. She's off to another vet that Ohio Pug Rescue works with. I hope they can figure out what she needs. She is just the sweetest, most mellow girl ever. It will be interesting to hear if this vet also thinks she is a puggle or just very poorly bred ~ which is very common with puppy mills and backyard breeders. Please remember, adopt, don't shop.
