What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?

If you’ve been reading my blog for any time now, you know that I love, love, love Mooch. Did I say love? Every so often I find a special one, one that makes me laugh out-loud, is poignant or just purr~fect…well those get framed to hang on my walls where I can enjoy them always! This makes me think that really is nothing wrong with taking a nap, right?

There were or should I say are a few things on my resolutions list. First and foremost was getting my stitching closet somewhat organized. Refreshing my memory of what I have. Now the shop was closed for a few extra days, so I did have time to work on it and was able to complete the task! I said nothing about getting threads organized, just projects and I was thrilled!

I picked out 2 pieces to be working on now as I promised myself for every new piece that I start, I want to finish something. I have 2 classes coming up this month, so there’s 2 pieces, right? Notice that I picked small things. Home Sweet Home will be a shop model as it was the finishing that I saw that made me track this canvas down.

The Tokyo ornament will be a remembrance of my Japan trip. Kathy Schenkel was kind enough to paint the Tokyo for me, so I would think that it’s in her line now?! Actually both of these canvases are from Kathy Schenkel!

Best thing about stitching? Well it’s all the proper supurr~vision that I get! She’s a good girl and doesn’t mess with my threads! I have used a Grip-It stand for years and it sort of just fell apart on me, so I’ve been using this Lowrey from the shop. Can I tell you how much I don’t like it? I’ve been scouring eBay looking for another Grip-It and hopefully I bought the right one!

  1. My stitching resolution is to finish finish a few of my completed projects. I already have frames for four or five of them. I just need to do it! I have one kitty who likes to sit on my √Član tabletop stand, with her head right under my Stella desk lamp. Fortunately, she slinks down into a “turkey” position when she gets tired so my light isn’t blocked for long. She doesn’t play with my threads either, just snoozes while I stitch.
