The new year is here, FINALLY!! I am super looking forward to the new year. Had tons of ups and downs in 2017 so I am looking forward to more ups in this new year. I spent my New Year’s Eve with my wonderful husband and two well behaved doggies cross stitching a great little mystery stitch. I have joined so many new cross stitch groups due to me starting this new hobby. The stitch I worked on last night was released my a FB group named NYE MYSTERY SAL. Thanks to Galdra Stafir for creating this chart. The stitch was started on New Year’s Eve and will officially end today. a new mystery was released every 3 hours. It was thrilling to see the new chart. Then knowing we had to finish it quickly so we can stay caught up. I did finish mine see pic below. Also there is a mystery SAL for 2018 that has started. That FB group is Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL. I am trying to get my material for that one now. So if you like cross stitching there are a numerous of groups out there to join and meet new people who share your addiction. Also today I went to out new local Hobby Lobby that just opened. It will be a true pleasure getting to shop there and not have to travel so far for a craft item. Going to try to do much better at the blog this year!. Maybe the crafts that I like to do as well as the You Tubes I watch and the Facebook, tweets, and Instagram’s don’t keep me away from here. HAPPY NEW YEAR to my new readers!!
