Hi whoever might still read this blog! I haz a plan - the year of finishing! I hope I can implement this plan so I can stop being such a starter! :D Wish me luck!

My blog may have something other than knitting!

Looks like right now I am wanting to learn to quilt - I have sewn much longer than I have knitted so it's not really something new to me - but I have never done any serious quilting and it looks like fun! I hope to post more here soon!

Great Knitblogger and Contest!

KnitPurlGurl had been one of my inspirations to blog more in the new year - one thing she does that is great is she runs all kinds of cool contests with the great stuff she is reviewing.  This week's contest is here:

It is for a kit to make a knitted bracelet out of wire.  She has all the details there!  Good Luck!

Resolutions, sort of...

Well there are several things I plan to do this year - I am not going to call them resolutions because I feel resolutions are made to be broken - but here are the current plans for 2010:

Personal:
Get Healthier - I'd like to say lose (enter number) pounds and exercise and all of these lofty ideas but I know the main goal is to feel better on a daily basis - there are some plans in place such as exercising and eating better and continuing to work with my doctor on some underlying health issues.

Household:
De-clutter and Define - It is my goal to finish unpacking and organizing the house - the main rooms that need work are the garage and my sewing/guest room - part of this plan is to continue getting rid of unnecessary household stuff, collectables, and clothes I do not wear - some progress has been made in 2009 so I would like to continue that progress.
 
Crafty:
Organize and Reduce - This is also overlapping with Household - Cut down on what I buy in the craft realm and work with the supplies and stash I already have. I also want to record what I have in sewing patterns, fabric, yarn, and other craft supplies and get rid of those supplies I am not using nor have no plans of using.

Online:
Belonging and Blogging - I want to get involved in the online craft communities again.  I would also like to do some book or craft reviews for either existing craft review sites or on my blog for companies looking for product reviews.

I feel these are all obtainable and realistic goals because there are not numbers and dates attached to these goals so failure or quitting cannot happen - only moving forward, towards the goals can happen.

Pirates!

Hmmm I should not do a search on the tag pirate on Ravelry - on page 10 now! Yaaar!
