I absolutely love how each year I learn something new about myself. This year wasn’t about learning per se, but about accepting.
Accepting that try as I might, I cannot plan my year out like a few of my very good friends and many bloggers I follow. I admire their tenacity and ability to stay on track and not lose it when glitter is presented….my theory here is they are annoyed when glitter is present and set to work vacuuming up said glitter so they can continue onward as planned, but I could be wrong.
Since 2012 I have wanted to end each year with all projects completed and no WIPS to start the New Year. Boy was that a silly idea! This year I have so many more WIPs I’m beside myself! I have to admit I get this from my maternal grandmother. It’s not a flaw; it’s just really fun to start new things. Finishing happens so it is not a total catastrophe. I’ve read some blogs where a person has over 200 WIPs! And don’t forget those who do a start per day for a year. That’s 365 WIPs. I don’t’ have nearly that many, but applaud people who do that deliberately and know what they are doing.
As my GF’s and fellow bloggers have said, perhaps planning my year out isn’t for me. I won’t be doing ToT next year (and may hand that one over to someone who wishes to continue with it) but will continue onward with TW…I CANNOT ever leave that alone. I will probably sign up again for SFS if Mel is going for it again in 2016, and I will go for the monthly goals. The Merida Sunday Stitch should continue in the next couple weeks after the Halloween SAL is finished and the new Speed Stitch Competition is over on Stitching Pirates.
Are you all as busy with life as I am? This is has been stuffed full of changes and has sped by so fast my head is spinning!
We all know that the fine art of putting a thread through the eye of a needle always leads to good memories and stories and beautiful creations, please continue making history!
Until next time…..Keep on Stitchin’
