2015 and I have entered into a relationship! It is fresh and new and I hope to give it the respect it deserves. Like any new relationship, I do not want to show 2015 all of my faults and bad habits. This relates to my needlepoint pursuit as well! I will try to keep my bad habits relating to my stitching to a minimum : the procrastination, the overbuying, the overcommitting, and so on! I will strive to show 2015 good technique, excellent thread choice, and a general good pace on my projects. 2015 and I should get off to a healthy start in our relationship!
So, we kick off this year with the Strake Jesuit College Preparatory Auction pieces. My friend, and an excellent stitcher, Debra and I are chairing this project together. We chose Kelly Clark's nativity that I have already stitched. We have farmed out all of the pieces to other mothers and supporters of the school! Debra and I are going to complete the backgrounds and the 3 bands at the bottom of each piece. So far it is going very well. We have already gotten the 2 camels, 1 donkey, Angel, 2 shepherds, Mary, and the spectacular Elephant back. The drummer boy and Joseph are very close to coming back. That leaves the three Kings, the sheep, and baby Jesus Himself to be returned. I think it is going very well. Debra and I have hosted "stitch ins" on Thursday nights and it has been a lot of fun. Every single woman that we have met has been interesting and fun! How refreshing.......I guess it is a fact that all stitchers are nice!
So, my hope is that January will be filled with the Nativity finishing and then I can move on to other 2015 projects. We are headed back to Amy's in March so I need to decide what to take with me to work on for those delightful 4 days!
Having trouble uploading photos today, not sure why! I am going to try to make the blogging a weekly event to keep my honest on my relationship commitments to 2015! However you know what they say about a good friend, "He knows you well and loves you anyway"!
So here's to 2015:
May your troubles be less
Your blessings be more
And nothing but happiness coming through your door!
