Greetings friends. The weather outside is just right for a stitcher like me. Cold and blustery outside leaves me warm and stitching inside. Picked up a few new gadgets for stitching. Picked up a Taylor Seville-Thread Magic Round. Friends have been telling me it's far better than the Thread Heaven I've been using for years. I've been using it on my WTNT Needle & Thread design I started. (See above post for that design.) So far I'm very impressed with it. A new pair of purple scissors and a lipstick tube that holds needles....what more could a stitching girl want. lol Both purchased at Hobby Lobby. My PS Santa is coming along quite nicely. I was trying to count how many time I have stitched this exact pattern but honestly can't recall. I end up giving the finished designs away every time. This one is for my baby sister so a little extra love in every stitch. And lastly peanut butter cookies never ever ever last long in this house. I have about 10 cookies recipes that I just make from scratch with-out recipe and these full butter- full real peanut butter are one of them and they always bake up like a dream. The cookie jar never stay full for long. How is everyone doing? Can you believe we're already 10 days into 2017? The last 2 weeks have flown by. I wish I could just slow it down a bit and have more time to enjoy the busy days.But there is always so much to do. I feel like Rabbit of Winnie the Pooh. One day I'll be Pooh Bear and just sit with my hand in the honey jar enjoying every single minute! #goals
Here are the first 3 2017 stitching goals I have kitted up and ready to go. I have a few other designs on order and a much needed trip to stock up on DMC still in the works before I can truly make a complete list of goals but I can't forget about new designs and magazine charts that will come our way this year so for now I start out small and look forward to adding to my list. How about you? Do you have your 2017 Stitching Goal List ready? Please share is you do.
Until next time I wish you all Love and Peace,
Happy New Year friends. Today will be a day of intentions not resolutions. I intend to not make promises but instead be gentle with myself and allow my mind to follow my heart. A deep breath and my intuition are my best friends to myself and 2017 will continue the journey of allowance to myself. Permission to oneself is a powerful thing.

Wishing all of you a very Blessed Thanksgiving holiday. I'm truly THANKFUL for all of your inspiring-funny-beautiful-and soul bearing blogs/posts. All of you have been my therapist in many forms the last couple of years. Nights when I couldn't sleep---days where a memory of my father made me feel so alone-times when I'm feeling like i didn't do my best-many many times when I started mentally beating myself up for gaining weight-- all the times when I tried to walk away from stitching because my mind didn't want to concentrate---oh yes all those time and it was all of you who posted to your blogs and never knowing that I was here sitting at my desk reading- crying- laughing- taking notes from you......... I thank you all.
