So, any Resolutions for the year? Did I hear massive groans? Wait, do not exit this blog! I think the same with Resolutions - too big, too scary, and we all feel guilty at failing, etc etc. So, my thing this year is to get healthier by changing a bad habit or adopting new (positive) ones.
First habit that I've started to change: Leave work @ work, don't take it home! By this, I mean mentally take it home so I'm always thinking about it. This is a very bad habit for me and one that was so ingrained that I didn't really think of it as a habit until someone pointed it out. She said that when she leaves work she completely closes that door and does not think about it at home. Hmmm, so I thought why not try it?
So far, so good! Whenever a work thought pops in my head, which is still happening, I just go "cancel" and click it off. It's a habit that requires my attention to change it. Then I thought why not just focus on changing habits and also adopting new ones as they come up during the year? I decided not to make a list because then I'll just want to do them all at once and that won't help at all!
What about you? Any habits you want to change? Do share if you feel like it.
I didn't get too much stitching time since my last post but I hope to get in a couple of hours today. I can show you what I got framed though, just a little one.
This is "Girl's Best Friend" by Birds of a Feather. I had purchased the pre-made frame last year and it was perfect for this piece!
Now comes the January Giveaway. There are two and each giveaway has 2 "prizes" inside.
The first is Shepherd's Bush. It will contain the Snowman Kit, and the Angel Pie chart. One note about the Kit - it was passed along to me but without the linen. The size is small enough that I'm sure you have a piece in your stash to use. It does contain those cute scissors though!
The second giveaway contains 2 sampler charts.
All of these items are un-used. I just thought I needed to lighten my stash and pass them on. I do hope that if you are throwing your name in the hat for the giveaway that you are intending to stitch, rather than sell, these items.
If you would like to enter the giveaway, please let me know:
- Which giveaway (#1 or #2) that you want to enter for, or both if you'd like.
- Make sure I have a way to contact you via email - either it's on your Blogger profile or you leave me your email address in the comment section.
Thank you for visiting and all your lovely comments. Till next time, stay warm & snug!
