Not much to report today, except that so far in 2019 I’ve managed to stitch every day! Yea!
Last night we had our ANG chapter meeting, and as always I took my stitching with me. And, as always, I was unable to stitch at the meeting. But when I came home, instead of just sitting on the couch, I managed to get about 30 minutes of stitching in. It was tempting to not, but I’m wanting to keep moving forward toward my goal.
Speaking of ANG, did you know that the Stitch of the Month is posted, usually on the first of every month. My chapter is following along and using this as our program for 2019.
I mention it because this year I’m a part of it! My partners in the Needle Arts Mystery Retreat and I were asked to create this year’s Stitch of the Month. We each took 3 months and designed a stitch. The process was interesting, and I’ll share more about that in a later post.
The first stitch for 2019 is one of mine! I hope you’ll enjoy it. Go to needlepoint.org, click on Distance Learning, and you’ll see the Stitch of the Month. It’s absolutely free for members. And if you aren’t a member, why not join this year? ANG members have access to all kinds of projects through the Stitch of the Month (members can access all of the archives), our magazine NeedlePointers, and local chapter meetings. Local chapters can access the Chapter Project Book for projects. And if you don’t have a local chapter, you can join CyberPointers. I’m a member of CyberPointers, along with 3 other chapters. There’s always something to do!
On to the day’s activities – mail, email, household chores, dog to the vet, and stitching!
