Bye Bye 2017 & Hello 2018

How is it suddenly December 31st?  What happened to all those projects I so carefully came up with last January?  Oh well, I'm optimistic enough to know I'll do it again next month and be grateful for any of them I actually accomplish.

"August~Seaside", the second month design for my Damask Calendar series, is coming along well and has been a lot of fun to stitch.  It is a frosty 7 degrees fahrenheit and we have about 14" of snow this morning and it seems like whatever season I'm in I always enjoy stitching something for the opposite season, go figure, lol

I'm loving this funny little fish looking back at me.

I hope wherever you are it will be a Happy New Year!  And that it will be full of lots of completed projects and happy memories.

Jasper LOVES snow!

  1. Wishing you a happy new year (a bit belatedly)! The August Seaside is turning out so well. I especially like the shell motif with the flourishes.

  2. Thanks, Mrs. C. That shell sort of just grew as I went along and I am happy it did!
