Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year to everyone who is still reading my blog! My blog....I have to laugh at that! It is almost non existent! However, this is one of my New Year resolutions....to get back to blogging! At least for now on a weekly basis. I have to say since I started blogging 5 years ago I was a daily blogger but things have changed so much for me in the last 5 years that something had to give. Sadly, I slowly became a sporadic blogger which isn't a bad thing but I realized I miss those few moments when I get to sit down and reflect back on the day. So please bear with me for the next few weeks as I get back into the swing of blogging.

As far as stitching goes, I really haven't stitched a whole lot since my last finish. I did start on a small piece out of an old cross stitching magazine. (Sorry, I can't think of the magazine or title of it right now.) I haven't made much progress but now the kiddos are back in school and back to somewhat of a routine maybe I can sneak in a few extra minutes to get some stitching done. :) I didn't set any stitching goals for myself this year because it is an All For Me Year! All my stitching will be done for me or patterns that I just like. Of course, I hope to squeeze some gift stitching in but that is not a priority for me this year. I am not buying any extra stash this year unless needed for the pattern I am working on at that time. That doesn't mean I might splurge here and there but for the most part I won't be purchasing patterns.

It's been almost 5 years of blogging for me as well - it is amazing to see how much has changed in life over that time..
