New Year Resolutions. I try not to think of the standards, diet and exercise....but go right to the fun stuff. New designs, new floss colors...new charts to do.....now we're talking! I have done 3 new designs this past few weeks and have two of them stitched and ready for finishing/framing. New photos will be posted soon. First I have to get out the sewing machine...which I thought I was done with.....
With the motto business I did 3 new patterns a week for the first year (and stitched each one for photos). Quite an accomplishment for arthritic hands. Now I hope to do a cross stitch pattern a week for the next year. It will be a slower process than the mottoes simply because I will have to do a chart too. I will offer them as chart only and some of them as kits.
I love the look of stitching on linen...but I need my models stitched quickly so I will stitched them on aida. I am not a patient person and want them finished NOW. Aida stitches so much faster for me and I still know a lot of people who prefer it simply because it is easier to see. Age related again....the eyes are the first thing to go when stitching!
I hope to be adding a lot of new primitive designs to the inventory as well as the Victorian mottoes. I like both....I decorate with both. I love a lacy Victorian bedroom filled with antiques. I also have a family room that reminds me of a general store! I always said I could live in a general store and be quite happy...maybe some day I will. I could be the crazy eccentric little old lady down the street......I think I am half way there.
I would like to wish each and every one of you a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
Lets have fun stitching together!!!!!
Of course we will have to have a few give-aways during the year!
