Yep, it's been a while, but I've got lots of ideas of things I want to start posting about. I've been working on my stitching, of course, but I've also been trying my hand at some other arts-and-crafts things as well as getting into the kitchen a bit more and working on doing a little glutten free baking.
So what I am looking to start out with is some crafty type posts. There are about 14 or 15 weeks left until Christmas (!?!?!?!) Yikes, yes I know, not nearly enough time:) I have half finished crafts all over the place, so my goal is to finish off and post on one project for each of the next 12 weeks or so. That will leave me a couple weeks to get other things done for the Christmas season. Not all of the projects I'm working on are for Christmas, and a couple of the projects that I'm wanting to do haven't even been started yet, but most are just random things that I started and then put a side - like all those stitchy ornaments and other smalls that need to be made into something.
For next year I have some ideas brewing for a weekly craft project posting on new things I want to either learn to do or get better at. Sort of a way to clean out my Pintrest 'craft' file:) Oh, and I have SOOO many things pinned on there that I could keep myself busy for many, many years to come!!
I'm also hoping to start doing some posts on glutten free eating/baking. This is something that I'm just getting a little better at. After so many years of trying to perfect whole wheat baking, it is rather difficult to get use to. I have come up with a couple recipes that work for us, so I want to start sharing them.
I am still stitching as well, but that is going rather slowly. I won't be doing any crazy challenges next year other than just trying to finish up as many of the stitchy projects that I already have as I can. I've been a very good girl and haven't even bought anything new in quite a long time:)
Okay, so tomorrow I will start with the pretty picture posts, those are more fun anyway, but here is one of a stitching project that I finished last month. This is 'Joy and Peace' from Little House Needleworks. It was a new start (I really did have this one in my stash!!! Really, I didn't buy it new!! :) I can see this finished off like an old time gift tag. It will one of the 12 projects that I finish off before Christmas.
