I'm not the Grinch!

After yesterday's post, I'm sure you are thinking I'm the Grinch!  Really, I'm not.  Usually I love Christmas.  This year, it just seems like it requires too much energy.  Anyone else feel that way?

I saw a question on another blog that I thought I'd like to answer myself.  I don't have the exact wording but basically it was what stitching gift would you wish for yourself for Christmas.  Immediately I thought of two things.

1.  Some PS Santa patterns!  I've been admiring these and I don't have a single one in my stash.  Maybe 2013 will be the year to start a collection of these for myself.

2.  Some stitching friends.

Count Down To 2013!

So I know most of you are counting down to Christmas.  Why am I counting down to 2013 and not Christmas?  Honestly 2012 has been a very hard year for me and I can't wait to see it end.  I'm really hoping 2013 is better.  I'm not going into any details about what happened but a by-product is that I'm depressed.  There I said it!

One tip I've read is that you should find something that you used to love or that brought you happiness and try again.  Even if you don't have the energy or think you would enjoy it now to just try.  So I've decided to stitch again.  We'll see how it goes.  I don't have a lot of extra money so I'll have to find something from my stash and start that way.  I'm sure I'll start with something small.  I'll be back soon to show you the project I pick.  Wish me luck!
