Happy New Year to you and yours
It's early yet and everybody else in the house is asleep. As an early riser I relish these quiet hours of the day. Nobody wants anything, the chores can wait and I can savour my cup of tea.
In keeping with the day I've been thinking about resolutions and whether to make any.
For the past 10 or so years I've made a craft resolution. Often it's to learn a new skill - in 2005 it was to learn to make Bobbin Lace. By the start of 2006 I'd made some progress but still felt I had much to learn so carried it over to 2006.
2007 I was to learn how to spin - I'm going to carry this over. I've made some progress, got a wheel and had some fun getting to know her - but I wouldn't say I've learnt to spin.
I've also dug out Alpine Seasons from the UFO pile so I'm going to work steadily on this (one day it might look like this)
I've also got a cardigan that I would like to finish knitting before our camping trip in August
..........and knit a jumper for DH
On a none craft front there are some self imposed deadlines I'd like to meet on a course of study I'm doing. Not to mention some major changes in how I earn my living.
In summary 2008 is a year for progression.
Good Luck and Enjoy!!!!
