One thing I didn't do though was work on my BAP Lobo from HAED. One of the very last things my mom said to me was that she hoped she would live long enough to see it finished, and as a result I just was not able to pick it up and work on it all year. I know that would not make her happy, so my stitching goal this year is to join WIPocalypse and work on Lobo. Here is where I left off.
At a minimum I want to get 50 stitches in a day (I am a very slow stitcher unfortunately). It is day 7 of the year, and I have no progress to report 😞 but that is okay, as the goal of the WIPocalypse is to make some progress and I am determined to do that! If you would like to join the WIPocalypse or learn more about it, here is the link to the sign up page.
This month for our post we are supposed to introduce ourselves, our projects, and our goals for the year. I guess I've introduced myself and my WIPocalypse project. My other main project is Friendly Felines by Karen Brittan. I found the pattern in the June 2014 issue of Cross Stitch Gold. This is where I was at the start of the year, and the progress I've made this week.
I have two other goals for the year. One is a stitching goal. I want to work on miscellaneous smalls. I am hoping to complete enough this year, so next year I can give everyone a handmade birthday card.
My other goal goes back to positivity. A friend introduced me to a 'positivity jar'. At the end of each day she takes a moment to write down one good thing that happened and made her happy. Then she puts the slip of paper in a jar. My goal is to blog everyday. Six days a week it will most likely be one sentence with the thing that made me happy for the day.
So here is today's happy moment. One of the reasons we love the Mineola Diner is because it is such a friendly place. We met two new people at the diner today, Debbie and Jimmy, and look forward to seeing them again.
