dear god has it been that long?

my poor little corner of blogland has been somewhat neglected this year as life has got in the way rather more than I would have liked.

Next year will see some massive changes coming to the way I live my life as well as the continuation of the better aspects of this year and I can't wait to get started!

This year I joined stitch from stash and although I forgot to blog about the last couple of months I can happily report that I didn't spend a single penny on stitching supplies for the whole of 2014! I didn't really do much stitching in 2014, finishing Super Mario in the early part of the year seemed to have wiped out my stitching bug completely however I am hoping that will change in 2015.

I aim to continue working through stash mountain (hopefully reducing it in the process) during 2015 and as such have signed up for SFS again however this time I am going to remember to post & to actually get some stitching done.

I am going to follow along with the crazy January challenge in 2015-again its a chance for me to reduce the mountain to a molehill and I really enjoyed participating back in 2013. This year however I may limit myself to smaller charts to start the year off :)

My work bag is currently full of yarn based projects as well as a couple of stitching projects. Rotations never seem to work out for me so aside from my Crazy January smalls I'm going to try and be a one project at a time kind of girl.

I am going to be ruthless with my stash, if I've already stitched the design the likelihood is that I won't stitch it again so I am going to be eBaying off several hundred charts throughout the year (again reducing the mountain) and helping to reduce my debt at the same time.

Yes I have a small bank loan that I have been paying off slowly for the last couple of years, I have decided that since I have proven to myself in 2014 that I can get by without the need to buy stitching supplies I am going to try and go one better and cut out down the games buying as well (limiting myself to preorders and no retro games) and see if I can rid myself of my debts before July.

So there we have it, this is my start to a frugal 2015 (I will be monitoring myself very closely but hopefully I'll be able to have some fun with it as well and rekindle my love of crafting)

Wishing you all a very happy new year & see you in January!
