Jo at Serendipitous Stitching is hosting the blog hop of all blog hops to celebrate this very special day in her life. She has assigned each of the participants a year in her life and asked us to write something about our life in that year and post a picture of a piece of our stitching we think she would like.
I've been given this year and this is what Jo has to say about herself.
2016 - Jo is 50! Welcome to the present day. This year Jo has decided to attempt her largest Blog Hop yet with a blogger for almost every year of her life (we skipped the boring years!). Jo's stitching targets have focused on her GG projects with great success this year. She also set herself a new challenge - The Longest Day WIPathon, the chance to work on as many projects as possible in one day. Her final achievement for this year will be to tick off a goal which has featured in her sidebar since she started this blog - to stitch a Chatelaine!
I turned 66 this year, so Jo is still a young'un as far as I'm concerned! This year I joined the local Seniors' Centre and have greatly enlarged my circle of friends as well as being introduced - or reintroduced - to the world of cards (crib, whist, canasta, bridge and a few more), crafts, darts, floor curling, carpet bowling, jigsaw puzzles and, of course, bingo! Plus amazing opportunities to volunteer for some excellent causes.
So, keep coming Jo - life is not going to get boring and you may (still?) be asking yourself how you're going to fit everything into a day.
Choosing a picture has been difficult - Jo's stitching likes cover a WIDE variety of themes and styles - but I finally settled on two, for personal reasons.
This one because it was my first on anything except white Aida (and it's cute)
and this one because it's been my biggest project to date and I love the colours and the designs in each square.
Be sure to check out Jo's blog and see what happened in all the other years that make up her 50.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO!
