First off, my stitching hopes and dreams for 2008
1. Finish Book of Stitches (haven't touched it in over a month)
2. Finish Paradigm (by years end with the members of the Snowbird SAL)
3. Finish my secret stitch (progress to be revealed in the spring)
4. Continue with my Neighborhood Round Robin
5. Finish Crystal Tree (and soon I hope)
6. Start and finish Noah's Ark Stocking (am ordering new fabric and starting again!)
7. Do 1 ornament a month or at least 10 by the end of the year
6. Start Autumnal Abstract.
Now, I have never wrtten a list like this before so here's wishing and hoping!!
Next up, a beautiful gift from my BFF Beatrice. I forgot to show you this before. Beatrice gave this to me just as I was heading south for the winter and it was packed away for a while. When I talked to her on the phone, I finally remembered that I had not posted it. It is one of the medallions from Paradigm Lost and it is done in blue to match my home in Arizona. She is the best friend ever and now I have a piece of her handiwork and isn't it beautiful!! Love ya girl!
This is Cathy B.s RR. It arrived in the mail a few days ago. She wanted each of us to add something that represented where we live. I am working on the bottom left corner. I have decided to do something that represents Arizona since that is where I live at the moment.
Here is my part. It doesn't look like much but hopefully there will be much progress in the next few days. I am having a hard time sitting and stitching these days. I just don't seem able to stay in one place long enough to accomplish much. I am having trouble seeing this fabric at night for some reason so I think I will have to stitch on it during the day only (and no, I am not getting old and my eyesight is not failing!) okay, so maybe I am having a little trouble but I refuse to admit it. LOL
My other goal for the year is to drop some pounds. I am having some back issues and may have to have surgery at some point. I know when I go to the doctor in the spring he is going to tell me that my weight has contributed to my problems so I am going to beat him at his own game. It is going to be difficult as I love food and I cannot exercise much with my back problems.
I guess I better stop writing and get back to stitching. Till next time
