Happy New Year! !!

I want to wish everyone a very happy, healthy and blessed new year. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and to comment. I want to welcome my new followers!
I hope everyone had a lovely time last night and that you are enjoying a nice day. We had a quiet (as quiet as a home with a jazzed up 9 yo can be! !) evening with lots of snacks and games. We celebrated the new year at 9pm so little man could get to bed!  :-)
Today we are enjoying a lazy day. I made a start on my Frosty Forest piece. I am stitching it on 32ct. LL Flagstone. My LNS didn't have Pearl Grey but this is very close. I plan on stitching and knitting the day away. My daughter wants to go to Joann's and Michaels, so I will join her to do that, but otherwise you will find me in my chair with a cuppa!  :-) My hubby requested a Jane Austen movie for tonight. (Yes, he is the greatest! He's a country boy from Oklahoma who loves Jane Austen!  He says real men love Jane Austen!  ) Anyway!  ;-)
I have decided to join the Stitch from Stash group this year. With having a house for sale still in Arizona and rent here, I need to be careful!  :-) I really like the rules that they have set up for this group. I think it will help me stay on track. The only patterns I plan on buying will be the Frosty Forest series and at least some of the Calendar Girls series. I definitely want February since that is my birthday month. But we will see how well that goes! Santa Pickle gave me a gift card to my LNS for Christmas, so that will help too.  :-)
I have made some plans of what I would like to stitch for the year, but we will see how that goes. ;-) I did pretty well with my goals for last year.
Well, daughter is ready to go, so I had best head out with her! 
Happy stitching!
Love, Heather

Happy New Year Heather. A little late but never mind!

Looking forward to seeing your progress on Frosty Forest. I haven't started mine as want to finish the sheep first.

Good luck with Stitch from Stash. I am hoping I can do well :)

I am glad houses are a favorite subject for chart makers because it allows us to stitch them. I'm very fond of sampler-houses, too.
Wow, 32 count linen. I admire your ability to make the tiny stitches. I'm comfortable with 28 count but I am attempting 30 this year - with a magnifying lens and glasses.
Happy knitting, too, Heather.
