I was flipping thru an old calendar that
had quotes and sayings, and the first one said
"If you start something,
finish it."
That really struck home, I'm finishing all these projects
I did in the last year before starting any new ones.This blogging
has been a good thing, a reason to finish.

Yellow Rose Buds

Stitched on 28 ct. Joblean
from a free pattern by
The Drawn Thread
"Pearls and Rose Buds"

This was my first try at drawn work. I enjoyed doing it even if it's not perfect. I stitch to relax and hope that someone will enjoy looking at my work. I feel hidden deep in the internet and wonder if anyone but my family ever looks, but it's fun to be a blogger.
