I know, I disappeared. It's been a tough week. But I did get a bit of stitching done, cross stitching being one of my coping mechanisms.
Isn't it lovely? I adore this pretty shading and all these bright, lovely colors. In other news, I'm quite excited about my stitching plans! I definitely plan on stitching Country Cottage's Santa's Village series, as soon as I can get my hands on the first pattern and some supplies (read: as soon as I go home for a weekend or a break). I also have several planned starts for 2013, and I am going to try the Crazy January Challenge 2013. I'm working out my list of fifteen new starts that are both doable in a year and (more importantly) not too pricey. I see a lot of bookmarks and ornaments in my future... :)
Yay, it's a new month! I hope you're all enjoying November as much I'm going to be! :)
