The Bad News Is, Time Flies.........

......... the good news is, you're the pilot."    
- Michael Altshuler

A big thank you to all of you for being fabulous passengers on my flight through 2012.  Wishing each of you the brightest and best in 2013.  

I had planned to post a year-end review of my stitching but instead of looking into the past (you can check out my WIPs in the tabs above!).... I'd rather focus a bit on the future!

What great things do you have planned for the new year?  As per my modus operandi, I've resolved to eat healthier and exercise!   Let's see if I can hold out longer than I usually do before this resolution falls apart!  :)

What else.....  putting some plans together to try to get our family moved from Florida to Utah...back where I grew up and where my family still lives.   Maybe we can do it in 2013!!!

Can't forget....I also have some ideas of stitching goals for the new year.  Not so much finishes (because they're all such big projects!) but more of what I want to start and how much I want to get done.   I've updated my rotation plan.... I'm working on each piece for 5 days.  I tried this out starting in November and I really like it, so I'm sticking to it!

Anyhow....this was meant to be a short post (yeah, right, lesli!).......  again...thank you for your support this year....looking forward to the next!

***hangs her head in shame*** (IHSW post, too)

I can't believe it's been almost a MONTH since my last post!!  

I feel so horrible for leaving all of you hanging!!     After Thanksgiving I was out of town for a week for work and then I've just been busy with the, kids, family, holiday shopping....and stitching....sigh...I'm sorry!!

Obviously I've missed the last few TUSAL and WIPocalypse I'm just going to plan to do a New Year's shabang and post a review of everything!!

But....I did manage to take part in the IHSW this past that's what I'll be sharing for today:

TamLin Before:

And After (almost finished the half page!):

I also started a new piece on Sunday - Paradise Found by Janelle Nichol, designed by Heaven and Earth Designs.   Here is one day of stitching:

Here's a picture of what the finished piece will look like (in 20 years):

I'd like to wish everyone an incredibly wonderful holiday and Christmas!!   I hope everyone gets to enjoy time with their family and friends. :)

I promise I'll be back at the end of this year for an official final 2012 post.    I soooo promise!
