Resolutions... Or Are They Merely Suggestions?
**Finish some WIPs. This is my #1 goal. I only have about 5 WIPs. Two of them are very small.
Is this an attainable goal? Yes!
**Stitch one Christmas ornament every month. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a dozen ornaments stitched by next Christmas?!
Is this reasonably do-able? I should probably change it to one every other month, and if I happen to stitch more, then Yay!
**Actually attempt some of the crafting ideas I've been saving on Pinterest. I have a lot of craft-oriented pins -- what am I waiting for? One per month?
Is this a realistic goal? Depends on the project.
**Learn to crochet items that require something other than single crochet, and don't panic if the project is not rectangular or square.
Can it be done? Of course.
**Attempt some new ornament finishing techniques.
Can I do this? Yes.
**Organize the craft room.
Is this a realistic goal? This one is an absolute necessity.
That last one. The craft room. Lately I've misplaced several things, only to find them later in places that made no sense. Sure, my craft room may look clean and relatively neat. But stuffing items into boxes just to make the place look tidy is no solution. I've got a great craft closet, but without some organization, I have no idea what's in those boxes until I open them and look. So a lot of organizing and some labeling is in order. That will be a day of fun. Ha ha. I'm pretty sure that the end result will be worth it!
So what do you think of my list? Am I going to stick to these resolutions? I'm thinking of them more as suggestions for enriching my craftiness. I like that -- "enriching my craftiness". If I keep these in mind, I'll be likely to act on them and have fun in the process. So let's see what happens in 2015.
Speaking of getting things done, here is my progress on the Summer Garden Pincushion.
Now I'm off to get dinner into the crockpot and then enjoy the rest of this gray, typical January day working on some stitching.
