New Year's Day Start is a Finish!


It is tradition for me to start a new project on New Year's Day. This year's project was an easy one to choose. My husband got me the Lizzie Kate "time for God" for Christmas. I had a piece of fabric in my stash that worked perfect! It is called fossil & is from Picture this Plus. I used the called for DMC colors, as I didn't have the Weeks colors.
I thought this piece was a perfect new year project, because at the beginning of a new year, I always focus on how much time I spend with God each day. When I see this piece, it will remind me to spend that quality time with God, even in the hard times, the bad times, & especially the good times.
This year is going to be a tough year for me. Our son is due to deploy any time now. He hasn't been given an exact date but sometime this month.
Thanks for visiting & I look forward to sharing with you this year!
