Recently, I received an email from WordPress detailing the stats this past year for my blog. I originally decided to blog about my various creative endeavors with a pair of knitting needles and yarn in order to give the creative side of my life “purpose.” Not to soon after I started blogging, I began teaching. From teaching, I was asked to become a part of a design studio/yarn store in my local town. So you see, stats were not on my radar. I was hopeful that someone would find my posts interesting, but it did not matter. I wanted a platform which would enable individuals to “see me” through my stitches. I’ve tried to maintain a personal distance communicating only one stitch at a time because “words” are many times misinterpreted.
In retrospect, 2014 was a wonderful year. My husband and I cruised up the Danube River for two weeks. An experience I will forever hold close to my heart. One morning, while cruising, I was awakened by a glow filtering through the drapes in our cabin. I grabbed my camera and captured the sun coming up. Perhaps we’ll see Istanbul or Paris this year.
I ended the year by making a new acquaintance at Eddies’s Quilting Bee in Sunnyvale, CA. Sally-Ann Flak, a talented artist, taught a class at The Bee. I plan on taking a pattern drafting class this month and a Moulage class in February. Check out a picture of me wearing a scarf and holding another on Eddie’s Quilting Bee Facebook page. I was able to finish both scarves in Sally-Ann’s class.
To all sticks-a-gogo’s friends, Facebook friends, and my friends in the real world, Happy New Year!
