January work list...and new projects

Seems like I have been so busy. I have been reading a lot of your blogs and I have been trying to decided where to start this year. I usually don't take down my Christmas decorations until the kids start back into their home schooling and the oldest goes back to college. That being said, I am still basking in the glow of Christmas and have not intentions of rushing the season!
The Santa and reindeer above were a gift from my sister and they looks so settled next to mt star light....I am enjoying them for a few more days.
Even though we are still enjoying Christmas, I have been thinking about what my next projects will be...well..I did start Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I am working on block one but honestly the symbols on the chart are difficult to read. I even had my kids try to read what they are and we used a magnifying glass I have never done that before but I am really having trouble with it. I was so excited about starting this design so that does make me frustrated so tomorrow I am going to enlarge the chart to see it that will solve the issues I am having...wish me luck with that.
As far as other projects...well...first I am going to organize the basement before I put the decorations away. Then all the decorations will come down...that's when the real work will begin!!
Since our daughter is graduating this year I am going to start cleaning the closets. Yes, the closets first so I will have a place to put "things" as I clean and organize.Soooo.... January is for closets.... I have 8 in the house and that is where I will begin!
I will try to post pictures as I go...I do hope I remember to do that because sometimes I get is such a hurry that I forget...but I will try!!!
I don't make any resolutions for New Years since it really seem pointless to me. I make lists and work from them as best I can...but some of the resolutions I have been reading are very interesting. I do wish you luck with that.
For now I should go because I have 8 very loud teens in my living room..eating pizza and watching movies and I guess I had better keep an eye on them....until next time be blessed.

I have Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow and made a working's pretty easy to read but lots going on. Not sure when I'll start mine. Enjoy stitching, this will be a beautiful keepsake. hugs, Linda
