A new year always brings with it promises of new beginnings and resolutions. This year I hope to procrastinate less and to finish more. I am going to participate in the Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge and use it as an opportunity to stretch my creativity. I am going to try to finish more projects and to improve my skill level as I work on them.
That said, over the holidays I started two new projects. They are mostly traditional cross stitch and both are fairly large. On Christmas Day, I started working on Chatelaine's Rose Lights. It was a gift several years ago and I thought it was appropriate to open and start on a gift at Christmas time. My New Year's project is Lavender and Lace's Autumn Angel. I have always loved the angels and mermaids and the golds and oranges of autumn are some of my favorite colors.
