Welcome Along 2012

Ah, a New Year!

I am so ready! 
Looked outside at the seriously too warm for Winter weather and thought, "looks the same to me."
The calender flips and nothing has changed.


I like sameness.

Not that I am an advocate for the status quo mind you. 
I actually like to think of myself as a one woman Crew of Anarchy. 
But, as I am also The Queen of Pro Crasty Nation, not much upheaval is achieved here in our cozy new home.

I want to change that in some ways. 
Not that I ever anticipate giving up my Crown but 
some changes would be good.

Thus I think I shall dub 2012 "The Year of Along."

Look over to the right there -------->

I have joined a couple of Stitch Alongs.

My pal Jodi of Pleasant Home is going to help me, and lots of us, use up all those scraps we can't bear to throw away with 

New to me blogger, Karen of Sew Much 2 Luv, is hostessing 
Karen's giveaway includes weekly prizes! 

Both gal's blogs are chock full of tutorials and beautiful ideas and inspirations.

Jodi's Quick Pinwheel Table Runner 
inspired my Pinwheel quilt for GrandBaby A.

Karen makes the cutest stuff. 
I love combining stitching (Cross or embroidery) and sewing as she did in this little bag!

I want to sew more. 
I want to embroider more.
I want to knit more.
I want to read more.
For Fun.
For myself. 
Even for profit. 
For my sanity.

Join me in welcoming the New Year with a renewed love for whatever is your favorite craft or your passion.

What do you want to bring along to the New Year?


  1. Hi Becky,
    I saw Jodi's stitch along and thought about doing it too, hmmm, maybe! I like your wants for the year, sew, stitch, knit these sound like good goals! Much love to you in the new year, my friend!

  2. Backatcha Lisa K-L!!!

    And do join the stitchy stuff. I need someone to help keep me going :)

  3. Looks like fun around here! I'll have to check those blogs out! Not that I need to start new projects mind you, I'm afraid I may be running neck and neck for your title, so I'm hoping to finish some long overdue projects in this brand new year, and also get some things made for a new grand baby due this summer.

  4. Happy new year, Becky! For you, I'm hoping all that you wish for and that you'll post more often (I love your posts!). For moi, I'm hoping to produce more product and participate in my shows. And have more fun.

    Stitch on, lady:)



Do tell! Whatcha thinkin?
