From Christmas Red to Valentine's Red
Sometimes I think I am super organized and other times I realize I am not at all organized. As today is January 10, it's time to pull the storage containers from the closets and git er done! One of the reasons, I have procrastinated is because one of my goals for 2015 is downsizing. As I have been taking down the Christmas decorations, I have been sorting and making decisions about which decorations will stay and which will be enjoying Christmas in someone else's home.
Am also sorting through needlework charts and deciding which designs I want to stitch for Christmas 2015. All these decisions have made my pea brain hurt! To date I have chosen Merry Christmas by La D Da, Merry Christmas by Threadwork Primitives and Jenny Bean Christmas ornament 2010 by Shakespear's Peddler. Merry Christmas by La D Da is in the 2009 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. Famous last Betty words: the designs are simple and should not take long to stitch. One of my yearly goals is to add at least one new stitched ornament to my tree. (Some years I make the goal, other years like 2014, I miserably fail).
Since Valentine's Day is just a few short days/weeks away, I am once again replacing the Christmas decorations with Valentine's decorations. Another goal is to stitch the freebie design by Primitive Hare called Love Never Fails. Again, such a simple design with powerful words and meaning. Will make a great addition to my dough bowl of smalls.
