Happy New Year readers!
Today I got to empty my ort jar. It was filled with a year's worth of fibres and memories from all the projects I stitched this year, but now its empty and ready for a new batch of fibres, projects, and memories.
Todd and I had a lovely New Year's Eve out at Rebecca's home with her husband and children. It was very low key and relaxing. LOL we didn't even notice when the clock struck twelve!!!
Rebecca and I stitched all evening once the boys were in bed. I started out with Rowyn's Neighbourhood RR but decided that wasn't the best piece to work on after my first adult friendly beverage! So I tucked that away and pulled out Mini Cottages 5 I figured aida cloth and bright colours would be the safest bet, and I worked on that until just after midnight. I did start to have a bit of a Moonlight Guardian crisis around 10pm (my New Year's start), I pulled it out and after a good fondle I was calmed enough to put it away and continue on my Michael Powell. However at midnight MG did make an appearance, I got in maybe 30 stitches then we all hit the hay.
This morning we woke up to a lovely surprise... MORE SNOW... that's right. We've had at least another 10cm today. It made our drive home a lot longer than it needed to be as well, and we would of stayed longer at Rebecca's for a leisurely morning. Our 1.5 hour drive turned into a 3 hour drive, Todd was a brave man and he white knuckled it home, and I worked on Mini Cottages to keep myself distracted and my mouth shut so he could focus on the road. I have to say there weren't too many idiots out there we only ran into two vehicles in the ditch on the whole trip.
Once we settled in at home I stared working on Moonlight Guardian in earnest. I had to stop for a few hours, I could feel a headache coming on so I took a power nap and that did the trick.
I really want to pick this project back up tomorrow, so far even just the border is so enjoyable! However I'll be a good girl and stick to my SAL schedule and pull out Paradigm Lost for a full day of love and attention. I know that once I put that needle to thread I won't want to put it down.
After a relaxing day at home by myself tomorrow I'll be heading off to Brighton to visit with Ann! I'll be arriving in time for her Thursday stitchers where I'll get to see Beatrice and the gang! I can't wait.
