Happy New Year everyone!
It’s January once again, and stitchers everywhere are having those dreams of big finishes, big projects, and major accomplishments. There will be bumps and bruises along the way, but hopefully each of you will accomplish at least some of your goals for this year (our FOURTH! How the heck did that happen?!?).
After two years of chaos – one learning how to be a mother for the first time, the other getting in over my head with toddler vs. round robin stitching, I’m looking forward to a year of only my own projects and maybe actually getting something off the list this year. For those of you who feel like you’re stuck in a rut – you’re not alone. If you feel guilty for some reason dropping off the stitching wagon, don’t. I mean heck, look at me – I’m the one hosting this project, and I’ve had my own ups and downs. But hopefully with the encouragement of the group, you’ll find the stitching mojo to push those projects forward a little bit (and so will I).
As it’s January, this is the reboot month… so this month’s topic is a very easy one:
Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
I hope you’ll have a wonderful, fulfilling year of stitching, knitting, quilting, and whatever other crafting styles you dive into for the year, and I look forward to seeing your progress!
Important SAL Announcements…
Next month’s posting date: February 4th
Topic for next month: How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?
Please remember that this stitch-a-long is intended to be fun – so if you’re too busy to post, too busy/ill/etc. to stitch – no worries. Post when you can and share what you have going, even if you’ve only been able to toss a single stitch into it. If you miss a few months, not a problem – just jump back in when you’re back with us! It’s not a race or a competition – we’re all just here to cheer each other on with our progress.
Due to different browsing software, some bloggers have found it difficult to check-in with their posts. There are three different ways to check in:
- Via Auto-link
- Via comments (make sure you include your blog address!)
- Via email – to measiwitch(at)gmail.com, only if the other two options are not working. Again- make sure you include your blog address! I’ll add it to the auto-link myself when I have a free moment.
