endings and beginnings
In Aztec traditions the passing of the old year and the coming of the new were two very different sets of days, nemontemi and qahuitlehua. Nemontemi were considered very unlucky, dangerous days. Dark spirits were thought to wander the land. People largely stayed indoors, kept to themselves, and kept quiet to avoid attracting the attention of these spirits.
I decided to follow their tradition and mostly stayed indoors except when I was taking Frosty Girl for a walk. Then I was safe because my guard dog would protect me from any danger. And I stitched, and stitched and I have a finish!
Tomorrow I'm starting the Super Duper Challenge so stay tuned for more stitchy stuff.
Have a happy New Year everyone!
