After many months taking a break away from this nearly impossible cross stitch design, I'm back at it, trying my best to stitch it correctly. I have grand plans of finishing this before spring arrives, wish me the best of luck!
How are you?
Around here, I've been busy being 'Santa' and wrapping the gifts that needed to be mailed. Every morning I try to do at least a half hour of gift wrapping. This year, I have more holiday spirit than last Christmas season. Maybe I'm more adjusted to living in this house? I have less thoughts of what I miss from my old house, and that's progress.
Around here, my bird feeder is a continuous delight! The raccoon has yet to be messing with my feeder and whenever I'm at the sink I watch MY birds. I love them so.
Around here, I'm closing in on finishing my fingerless mitts. I'm on the second mitt of the second pair. Today that mitt will be done. yay. After that I am done with holiday knitting! I can then revert back to knitting for me. I have a scarf, a shawl, and a pair of socks on the needles. There's also another hat I want to make for myself.
Around here, I'm plotting out my planners and journals for 2023. I'm excited for some new notebooks and some old favorites along with some fountain pen pairings with various inks.
Around here, I'm compiling a large reading list for this month and for 2023. I have so much I want to read! We have a second hand bookstore that we visit at least once a month and I bring home a book (or more) each time. Remember when I vowed to clear out more books from my collection after moving here to this house. Yeah, that goal went astray. So maybe 2023 will be the year I read what I have, then I'll move them out of the house or shelf them permanently.
