Although New Year's day is celebrated the first day of January, I make my new year's day the day of my birthday, which is tomorrow. I feel blessed to have a new year to look forward to. For the past few years, I have decided to make the new year starting with my birthday, a time to do something new, different, and worthwhile.
This year, I will finish the horn of plenty napkins and table runner so that I can have it by fall next year to decorate my table with. So far, I have one napkin done! Also, I plan to finish a cross stitch project to give away to the local kennel club. I also plan to teach myself to knit and to knit myself a sweater! I also plan to learn a new stitch or technique I have never learned before in embroidery.
I also plan to read more. I have a large collection of books that I have always planned to read. I have a wonderful front porch which would be great to sit out on and to do so.
I plan to take a lot of pictures of flowers and nature to keep in a book to make up new embroidery designs. And last, I want to find a way to make my embroidery into a personal business. Now what about you? How do you celebrate your birthday or your new year? I would love to hear.
