Well, it's not quite been a whole year since I've been here. I thought often of posting. I only felt guilty about not posting once in a while.
I'm not going to make any grand resolutions about posting more often or even regularly but today seemed like a good day to come back and we'll take it from there.
Two knitting and quilting goals for 2009:
1. Spend at least 20 minutes every day knitting or quilting. There is a very important clarification about all this. This time around (tried this in 2008), I must ACTUALLY quilt or knit each day. Thinking about it, reading a magazine or a blog or even playing with my stash does NOT count. So far, so good. Well technically, I still need to do today's 20 minutes. I did pull out a UFO earlier today to look at it for my second goal but I don't think that counts.
2. Spend the 25th day of each month working on a Christmas project. This is actually the idea of some great gals in my online quilting group. I am guilty of always seeing cute things I want to make for Christmas and thinking (in July, of course) that its too early to think about that. The next time I think about it is when I'm decorating for Christmas. First I fleetingly think, I'll work on something quickly and get it done for Christmas. And then I get a grip and realize there is TOO MUCH TO DO without trying to fit that in.
So this year, on the 25th of each month, I will continue to work on a Christmas Tree wallhanging that I started more years ago than I can count. I need to reinstall my scanner and when I do, I will post a picture of the project.
So there you have it, my first (and hopefully not my last) post of 2009. I know that no one currently actually reads my blog except for a few friends who I coerce into looking at it. But that could change at any moment. OK, not exactly holding my breath here.
Happy Quilting and Knitting!
