1st post of my weekly blog update

Happy New Year to all. Wishing all of you a year with many hours of stitching. I have been stitching a little this last week as I have been off work and it has been rainy and cold. Therefore, I have not been getting out much. I have finished my last greeting card for 2014 and the first ornament for 2015.
I am keeping to my rotation of 15 projects this year and hopefully will finish a couple of my monthly series I am stitching on. Also, will continue to stitch ornaments for gifts as my family and friends.
