March is my birthday month. I'm not saying this to garner lots of presents (although cake would be nice - you know about my love affair with cake), but because I simply can't freakin' believe that I keep getting older.
I think I've had a blessed life. Nobody's life is perfect and we all have our problems, but I wouldn't change a day of it. Hopefully life has made me more gracious towards my friends, family and strangers.
I know - you're thinking, "Blah, blah, blah. What does this have to do with stitching?" Well, here's what I have on my mind.
In order to keep reminding myself about the whole "older, wiser, more gracious and better" thing, I'm going to do a little stash diving and pick one design that has been around since my very early stitching days. You all know which ones I mean. The ones that you bought in 19whatever and loved and never got around to stitching. And every time you decide to weed out your stash, you wonder why you never stitched it. Well, I'm going to choose one of those. Maybe update the fabric and thread choices a little, but at heart it'll still be an oldie but goodie. And I'm going to try to finish it before my next birthday.
Does anyone want to join me? If you want to and if you tell me about it, I'll put your name, birthday month and project over in my sidebar.
How about it?
