Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

2015 – The Year Ahead

As a point of reference, here are just a few of the happenings from 2014:

  • Laid off (again)
  • Kitchen remodeled (yay!)
  • Hosted a get-together in AZ for a dozen friends
  • Landed permanent job as a consultant in July (requires weekly travel)
  • New car (VW Tiguan – cherry red!)
  • Phoenix Comicon and Fan Fest volunteer (awesome)

You are now caught up.   As you can imagine my “creating” time (stitching, quilting and knitting) was a bit more limited.  I did manage to finish off a few of each type of projects and I’m sure I’ll show them off in the coming months.

This year, I’m hoping for a little more consistency?  balance? predictability?  I’m not sure.  I do know that it would be lovely to have a year a little less stressful and full of change.  My schedule is busy, but not unmanageable.

That being said, the blog is part of my mitigation strategy.  A little planning, a little more focus and hopefully a lot less stress and an increase in positive results.

Here’s what is in store for the year:

2015 Reading Challenge – not that I need more reasons to read, but something fun to provide post fodder 😉

The WIP List – I will be updating the WIP List as I may have started a few things last year 😉  I’ll also be adding in quilting and knitting projects.

FMSPhotoADay – I’ve added my Instagram feed (azannette414) on the left which will show the photos based on the daily prompts provided.

I appreciate all that have found me again after my year+ break.  I wish you all a wondrous 2015!
