New Year's resolutions

I think I am going to try a few resolutions for 2010. It's a nice number. I don't usually make NY's resolutions, because I don't keep them and don't need more stress LOL But, I need some kind of motivation and maybe this will help. So, here goes...

I resolve:
to organize my computer - emails, files, etc.
to work on my WIP's and UFO's
to make at least one teddy bear per month
to follow my housecleaning schedule
to exercise and work on a healthier diet

I'm sure there will be more!

We had a finish projects weekend on Crochetville. So far I have finished 4 things!!! I hope to finish at least one more, so I better get busy!

Monday, February 16, 2009

Halfway through February and I really need to get in high gear to get accomplished what I want to do before the spring garden/yardwork season hits.
Since I joined Crochetville last year I have managed to add greatly to my list of projects in process and projects that I want to make. Can't say too much for getting many finished!

Right now I am making:
Learn to Knit squares (LTK) and although I am a very experienced knitter I am loving this project!
Squares for friends in the SKY CAL on Crochetville
Scripture Afghan Squares

That is just for starters. I have more things on my hooks and needles.

Another month already! Can't believe it...
I am SO.O.O ready for spring. We have had so much snow and ice this year, I can't stand much more. I need warmth LOL

Anyway, thanks to all that complimented my projects!!!

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Well here we are 2009 already! I'm still trying to find 2008. Guess I better move on, huh?
I have a list of goals that I am getting ready to post. One of them is to keep after this blog and another is to get my Etsy shop going. The pics I have here will be going into the shop for sale.
I also hope to do a little bit of designing this year.
