OMG! An Actual Stitching Post!

It has been ages since I've blogged =)  Is most of you know I moved in February and that was pretty stressful for me.  I lost my mojo to do all of my crafty things.  I had finished a piece for my cousin and needed to have it framed.  I took it to my local framer and amazingly she had a frame that was a perfect fit and already made.  So I picked this up yesterday and my Mom is taking it to my cousin this weekend.  I'm just sad I can't see her face when she opens it. 


I am now back to working on Anniversaries of the Heart.  I had finished the first, but was not happy at all with the colors.  So after some thought I reordered the colors I didn't like and when I received my new colors there was a huge difference!  On some of them I think I got the complete wrong color before.  Here it is now, after I took the seam ripper to it.  I have restitched the roof and front of the house and like the outcome so far. 

On the Brooke's Books front I have finished the ornaments for the Bride's Tree models and they are off to Brooke for any photography that needs to be done. 


The Season's Witches will be available soon.  This is Sandy Summer & Annie Autumn.  Wendy Winter is coming soon.  These join previously released Sadie Spring. 


Blessed Be, Meagan

Happy New Year 2012!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful, safe New Years.  I sat on the couch and stitched so mine was GREAT!  =) 

I am not really into making resolutions, more into adopting life style changes.  This year I am going to make daily attempts to live in the moment and not feel bad about things that I haven't done or look forward into things I need to do.  I don't know about you, but it seems to me that time just flies by so quickly.  It seems like yesterday that I had babies, and now all of my kids are in school full time and in just the amount of time that I have had kids they will all be gone from my home.  I know that the time between now and then will go by quickly and I will be wondering what happened to those years of my life.  I think that as we look ahead to things to much we loose this moment right now.  For instance..Christmas is so many days away...and the next thing, etc.  If we are always looking to those forward days we loose today and other days in anticipation of "what's next".  So I am going to move forward and do what I can each day to be happy in that day.  Play with my kids, stitch a little, etc and just try to be present so that in 12 or so years when I have an empty nest I will feel like I really was present and lived those years and am ready for the next chapter in life. 

Well...next post will be needlework.  I know I haven't posted any projects for a while...well I have a lot to show you..so stay tuned!!!
