New Year, New Start, and 2020 Recap

A Fresh Start

I looked through my stash this morning, searching for a project to start off the new year right. This year has just got to be better. I found a few possibilities.

The large canvas is Kirk and Bradley's Tropical Leaves Clutch (which I'll probably have finished as a pillow). I've had it all kitted up, including stretcher bars, for some time. I'm not sure what it is that drew me to this, certainly not the pink background, but I find the other colors and the shapes very appealing. I think it's time to place the first stitches into a bright, cheerful design that will chase away the clouds from 2020. (I hope.)

The two smaller canvases are from Point2Pointe and would be very quick finishes. If I want, I could even finish them myself. I may do these little quickies today (not the finishing) just to feel like I've accomplished something. I have threads for the one with my initial, and I can easily find threads for the silver and black geometric. We'll see.

2020 Recap

I joined in the 2020 challenge of completing the stitching of 20 pieces. I didn't get close, but I'm happy with what I did get accomplished.
