As I mentioned a few days ago I was looking forward to my first stitches of 2014. My annual tradition of a new start as soon as the clock hits 12:01 on New Year's Day!
We spent New Year's Eve and most of the day at my friend Rebecca's with her family. This year Beatrice joined us as well which was lovely!
Here's my first stitch of 2014 on Bent Creek's Stitching Row! Beatrice and I both started it after midnight. I didn't get in too many more before we were heading to bed!
Also as I've done the last few years I'll be doing the Crazy January challenge where I start a new project a day for the first 15 days of the year! I am not as planned or organized as I have been in past years so I won't give you a nice long list of new starts, but I'll surprise you each day with what I've started!
Today is the start of this year's TUSAL, the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long. Really there's no point to this besides the fact that we show off our orts on the New Moon of the month. Daffycat so graciously hosts this each year!
Here was my ort jar on December 31, 2013 a full year of orts and I've finally come across an ort jar I didn't have to stuff down to get more orts in!
Also I'm going to get back to goal setting! So here are my stitching goals for the month of January.
