New Year's Resolutions

While my resolutions seem to vary in principle, they all distill to one concept - FIND MORE TIME TO STITCH!

Eat Less - so I don't have to get up from my stitching chair so often
Cut down on coffee, particularly from Starbucks - so I have more stash money
Exercise regularly - so I have more energy which translates to more stitching time
Find serenity - so I can concentrate on stitching without making mistakes
Avoid sugar - so my hands are not sticky when stitching

Rather than fuss with how to achieve any part of the resolutions, I'll just dive into what I will stitch when I find all that extra time! My Challenge Project for 2008 is Rosewood Manor's "And A Forest Grew" (which can be found on the designer's website This is a large cross stitch design, for which I stitched and finished the smalls, shown on the front cover:

I started this project on January 1, 2008 and hope to finish it by the end of the year. Later this weekend, I hope to post my progress!
