Prairie Schooler: "Prairie Seasons" and Winter is my first 2016 stitching project (with the hope that it won't be the only one and will end up on the 'started and now forgotten' pile).
And here's the start--not much but you have to start somewhere, right? Week one.
And week two. Thought I'd share my progress all together to keep it in perspective.
Well, slowly but surely. Here is week three. Fifteen minutes a day does add up over time. My goal is to finish "Winter" in winter! Spring begins March 20, so I have two weeks left in January, all of February and just shy of three weeks in March. Wow, is Spring still so very far away. I guess I still have plenty of time to finish my house and snowman. I will even get to stitch with snow falling gently tomorrow out my window (or my work's window). I get visuals it would seem.
Stitching is nice to think about. Snow is not. So let's think about books instead. This is the current state of my nightstand. I have a few new additions but I am mostly moving right along in my current reads and am quite pleased with the variety of stories I can reach for at any given moment (and to cover most of my moods!). A few books on my sidebar have been relegated to the little shelf that sits just blow the top of my nightstand. So they are there--without being pushy. I am only in need of a classic (I keep making up my mind and then changing it) and I am still waiting for the January installment of my NYRB Classic subscription book. I keep checking my mailbox. Where is it? I keep telling myself that it is something nice to look forward to, but I am getting impatient. I have no real goals for reading this year (other than certain themes I hope to pursue in the coming months), but I do want to read each new NYRB as I receive it. Needless to say I am ready to get started!
