I'd like to start 2012 with big thank you to everyone that checks in here to see what's stitching, hooking and needlepunching! This is all part of a creative sanity that I thoroughly enjoy. Hopefully someone reading these posts has learned a new technique, short cut or entirely new craft they would love to try! Thanks for letting me share! And, thanks for taking the time to stop by here and read... and leave comments... it's comforting to know that there are kindred spirits among us, though we all may be miles apart.
One thing that is for certain this year... is that the completed projects posted here during 2012 will all be from patterns and supplies that I currently have! The mailman was very busy delivering quilting "Blocks of the Month" programs, cross stitch "Girl's Clubs", cross stitch "Mystery Samplers", yards of quilting cottons, pounds of soft, fluffy over dyed woolens, silk threads and linens throughout 2011... and did I mention patterns? Yep.... I have wooden crates and wire baskets full of patterns for rug hooking, cross stitch, wool applique, needle punch and quilting... and the one thing all these have in common, is that I'm still as excited about working on that pattern as I was when I first decided that I "needed" that pattern... so, it will all get stitched, hooked, quilted and punched before something new is brought to my mailbox...
So, before I start stitching on this first day of a brand new year... I'd like to wish you a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2012!!! May you always have opportunities to live, love and laugh each and every day!

Until next time, stay healthy and keep on smiling!
