My word for the year is Blessings, and today, I will be counting my blessings as I sew along with you.
I am blessed to have found the wonderful community of online quilters, who offer inspiration, encouragement, and wonderful friendly comments. My first blogaversary is coming up soon, and I'm very happy to have made several good friends in the past year.
I'll be adding to this post throught the day, as I make progress on my projects. I'll be close to the computer as well, and will respond as quickly as possible to any comments.
First finish. I'm working on various projects today, because I'm nearing the deadline on several swaps and challenges. I'm blessed to have found so many groups that were willing to welcome me, and challenge me. This first is an ornament for the One Ornament of the Month Challenge.
I added little gold beads (stash from my beading phase) instead of sparkly gold thread cross stitches, which would have required a trip to the store. We all know how those trips go - I would NOT come out with a single 99 cent floss.
I can only show a tiny little part of my next project because it is for a secret swap. I didn't get nearly as much done today as I had hoped, but I'm planning to keep on going. And I did finally get to watch Marley and Me for the first time, and Mama Mia for about the tenth time!
