The starting of a New Year and a Blog

Well, I have finally done it. I have a very good friend Deb who has been trying so hard to get me to start a blog. Well Deb, it is a new year and I have made the big decision to start a blog. I am hoping to use this as a way to allow me to get more stitching done and keep a diary of what I have been doing. So here's hoping it works.

My header is a photo taken in the early 1900's. It was taken at the bottom of the street that I live in. In the background is the harbour that I look at every day. Isn't beautiful? I will admit that it is very peaceful. But more about that another time
