Doodle-head Stitches December 2016 Wrap-Up

Show Notes

Announcement: As 2016 comes to a close, I've been reflecting on accomplishments and challenges of the past several years.

The past several years have been a wonderful time of learning, meeting new people, and enjoying the close relationships I have with longtime friends. Two years ago I remember declaring to one of those friends that I couldn't ever imagine making videos of myself and putting them online, but then suddenly there I was doing just that.

In 2017, I want to:
  • be more deliberate in all areas of my life
  • spend less time just surfing online, scrolling through feeds without any purpose
  • finish at least one large cross stitch project
  • learn to free-motion quilt better on my domestic machine and finish a couple of quilts myself
  • finish another sweater or two
  • okay, finish more things than I start
  • read more
  • enjoy the moments
I'm not saying I will never make another video, but for the time being, I need to step aside from that, and focus on other things.

Happy crafting all!
