New year, new goals........I hope

I can't believe it's actually 2012 and the last time I've updated this blog was in AUGUST!!  I've definitely gotten some stitching done which makes me happy, however I didn't complete nearly as much as I wanted!  I've got so many WIP's I'm intimidated and I'm the one who started them all!

We also had my daughter's sweet 16, that Hurricane Irene decided to crash, but that's a whole 'nother blog!!

I'm also sad to say I've lost my stitching mojo =(.  I'm desperately trying to reclaim it but it's hard.  I read other's blogs and look at all of their completed work and have pangs of jealously because I'm not completing ANYTHING.  I still love to look though, so thankfully I haven't lost that.  My ILCS group has saved me on more than one occasion, every time I feel like just "packing it all in" I read some emails and get excited again so deep down I know my love for cross stitching is not gone I just have to dig a little deeper to find it.  With that being said I've decided to have a few goals this year (which I NEVER do because I NEVER follow through) however I feel if I start off small, that might just give me the fighting chance I need to actually complete SOMETHING this year :).

Goal 1: to update this at least once a month, even if it's one sentence saying I've gotten nothing done (I'm really hoping I don't have too many of those).

Goal 2: To rotate my WIP's with a few stitches a night.  If I only dedicate myself to maybe 20 or 30 stitches at a time I might get more of my mojo back and who knows those 30 stitches could turn into 100.  Baby steps..... :)

Now, I hope whoever reads this is in good health and has no issues with their mojo, stitching or otherwise ;)......

Happy stitching my friends and wish me luck xxxooo
