I always love the New Year. It’s always so full of hope and excitement. New Year’s resolutions have never really been my thing as I tend to make little adjustments and goals throughout the year for things that I feel are important to me and our family. That being said, I have decided to try to provide more home (completely from scratch) meals this year. I know that requires more planning and forethought, but I think I am up to the task!
Now, on to the real meat of this post!! I have been stitching! This is where I was last time
and this is where I am now…
Here is the closeup of Santa’s face…
I am completely thrilled to have the face done except for the back stitching!!
This SAL has really been a great thing for me. The stitchers involved are soooo supportive and creative. I like that I was able to choose my own project to finish and I am thankful for the three week checkin as it keeps this project at the forefront of my mind! If you have a chance, please take a look at their work – it is totally awe inspiring!

I am also linking up with Kathy at Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitch Sunday.
Also linking to Kate’s Life in Pieces — I was able to stitch at least 15 minutes a day each of the last 7 days!! WOOHOO!
