I have been fortunate enough to have a peaceful week of vacation. I have spent time reflecting on last years accomplishments and areas where I want to improve. I have set stitching and non-stitching goals for the year, did some stitching and planning how I want to spend my time in 2012.
Number one is spending time with family. I also want to stitch more, excel at work, and do well with my volunteer commitments. There often does not seem to be enough time to accomplish all I would like but I intend to attack my goals with energy and commitment. I hope to live each day as if it were my last and give everything I can each and everyday.
The holidays were a little stressful...let's relax in a nice garden. Work on any piece with flowers or gardens.
While I will not let the themes dictate my stitching plans it's nice to see if I can accommodate them into my stitching life. That said, so far today I worked today on The Buzzzz. As you can see it has to do with Bees and therefore qualifies as being associated with gardens and flowers. I hope to work on this this month until I finish it. I have about 10 more hours of work to complete it.
I will also be working on step one of my master craftsman project which is of flowers. That will be my new start for January. If I get these two done before the end of the month I could work on the Delft Tulip Scissor Fob or Visual Elements Earth, or Gardens of Babylon which are in my WIP pile.
