Are you making any resolutions? I've decided instead of making "resolutions" , I would make a "2012 Bucket List". That way if it doesn't get marked off the list, it's not a failure....and those things that DO get marked off are a big plus! Looking at the glass half full here. :0)
As far as cross stitching goes, this is the year for stitching Christmas. Lots of it. I always start so late stitching ornaments, and I really don't know why. I love stitching them! So I've already pulled out some projects for the new year. I also want to work on a few of my WIPS. I have some biggies. I'm not going to be ridiculous by putting them all on my list, so how about just a couple of them. Like "Houses of Hawk Run Hollow". And maybe I could add "Amid Amish Life" to the list too. If I REALLY want to get ambitious (and totally ridiculous at the same time), I could add "Marianne Wrenn" to the list as well. Hmm.....need to think on the WIP list a bit more. If I could just finish ONE of those, I'd be a happy camper.
Then there is the quilting/sewing part that I want to do. Oh so much on that list. Well, I haven't really written a list out for this yet. I'm still drooling. Over fabric. Over new patterns and old patterns. I am bound and determined not to be a "hoarder" or "collector" of fabric and patterns. Well, maybe just a little bit, but I want to have pretties to enjoy, too. So I will be working on that list in the next few days.
I'm still trying to decide what color to paint my studio/pit/cave. It's time for the brick red to go. I will always love red. Red and pink. oohh la la....love them both. I just need to change up and maybe go a bit lighter in there. Any suggestions? I've been stalking Pinterest (LOVE me some Pinterest, oh yeah!) for ideas. WOW, there are some gorgeous craft/sewing studios out there. My cabinets and shelving will remain white along with the chair railing and bead board. I can really go with any color I want, but I do have a lot of red accents that I'd like to still use. Lots of red toile boxes, etc. I. Love. Them.
Pay me no mind. I'm just thinking aloud right now.
Hubby and I are both sick with the crud so will be staying home tonight and tomorrow. We had Christmas with the buglets last weekend, thank goodness. In fact, it seems like everytime we come home from visiting them we get sick. They are little cootie carriers, and since we're kissing and lovin' all over them, of course we have to get the "little kid cooties". I guess maybe our immune systems don't like little kid cooties. LOL BUT, it's worth it to get to spend time with those sweet babies. :0)
My bugs with Santa - 2011
Well, I think I will put my jammies back on, sow up in my recliner and watch "It's a Wonderful Life" for the eighty-hundreth time. Oh, how I love this show. I could watch it in July and enjoy it just as much. And while I'm watching the show, I will finish up the ornament I started yesterday. It says "Bedford Falls 1946". Pretty fitting, wouldn't you say? :0)
Merry Christmas, my friends, and love from Texas. For the new year
I "wish you enough".
