A Crafting New Year
Happy New Year! Has everyone made their New Year's resolutions? Me either. I really don't believe in them. I do however believe in starting out the year in the way I hope it continues. One of my Mother's Old Wives' Tales was that anything you did on New Year's Day you would do for the rest of the year. That's why Peg never did any washing or housework on this day. While I had no intention of doing any cleaning I did do a few things.
I did a little sewing.
I braided just enough to see the pattern developing.
And did a bit more embroidery. Let's hope this is one Old Wives' Tale that holds true.
