Gearing up for a stitching challenge!

Well, as pretty well everyone & their dog already knows, tomorrow marks the beginning of another calendar year. I can't say I'm that excited, as my husband & I are not really into celebrating New Year's, but I *am* looking forward to one thing in particular -- more stitching! See, on Facebook (which apparently is *not* just for games, LOL) I joined a stitching challenge group. For the first 15 days of January 2012, we each start a new project (15 projects total), and then over the course of the year we complete all those 15 projects. Most are cross stitch but we're a liberal bunch; anything with a needle is welcome. So I have cross stitch & quilt projects on my list.

I'm going to be posting my progress here (with photos!) for anyone interested in being amazed by how slow I stitch. :P

End of 2011, already?

Wow, here it is, nearly year's end, and I finally decided to post on here. I really do tend to forget I *have* this blog! So, here's what's coming up & what's new in my life:

-- not a hell of a lot!

-- lots of stitching projects on the way!
-- also, I am planning to actually get writing again. I say that frequently, in the hopes that eventually it will happen!
