In 2012, I have decided to concentrate on this:
"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity, but in doing it." So, I am going to enjoy my stitching time and not make it a "job" but a "hobby"; something that relaxes me and calms me from the daily stesses of everyday life. I am not pushing the limits on how many projects I have to do and finish in 2012. I just want to enjoy the feel of the fibers, threads and textures along with the beautiful flavors as I stitch with my needle. Simple, and doable with "no strings attached".
So, with this in mind, I started something new for the new year, something that would sing to my heart when the skies are bleak and gray. Something simple, yet subtle and delivers a punch......so I turned to our nations colors, the red, white and blue. I am "focusing" on patriotism this month and the brave hearts that give us these freedoms, the freedoms that are not free, but come with a high price. Sometimes that price is life.
May I introduce you to my first finish for 2012.
