Happy New Year!

Hey there anyone who stumbles across this blog and goes "hmmm, does she actually ever update it?"! Maybe 2019 will be the year that the answer to that question is more "yes" than "no".

I did actually do a little stitching last year after stumbling on the cross stitch subreddit and getting inspired to find a way to get more stitching time in to my schedule. And part of the reason that I haven't been stitching quite as much in recent years is that I've started to have trouble with my eyes, so I have to do it all with a magnifying lamp at my desk for now.

Of course I have a bunch of projects in progress that I could have been working on but I started a new project instead (see below):

For those unfamiliar, this is a reference to the IT Crowd show from the UK. :)

I did finish another of the Mill Hill musical Christmas ornaments, this time the drum. Three left to go! (previously finished - the harp and the mandolin)

And I finished the Haunted House that I mentioned here into a little pillow ornament. Although I was apparently *really* rusty since I didn't do a very good job on the stuffing and stitching to make it into a pillow!

That's it for recent stuff. Now let's see if I can post a little more before the end of 2019!
