I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions. But this year is different. I am making a New Year’s Resolution. And it is… (drum roll please)… to CROSS STITCH MORE!
I did very little stitching in 2014 and I want to make sure that changes in 2015. That is why I am starting this blog. I am hoping that it will create some accountability for me and get me motivated.
My goals for this year are to finish two WIPs that have been sitting around for a while, start (and hopefully finish) a new large project which I haven’t decided on yet, and start/finish two small butterflies that are part of a set. And I also want to actually “Finish” a few projects that I have completed the stitching on but am too scared to cut up to make into Christmas stockings, frame, and/or make into pillows and ornaments.
My problem is that I love to start projects, but when it comes time to complete and finish the project, I get a little distracted. I love the process of deciding on the fabric, picking the threads, and daydreaming about how fabulous it will look once I get it done. But halfway through, it starts to get boring and I start thinking about the next project.
But this is the year for change! I WILL FINISH SOMETHING! And I will catalog everything on this blog and share my successes (and probably a few disappointments) along the way.
I am looking forward to a great 2015 and I hope you are too!
