Happy New Year!

January 8, 2014

Yikes!  It’s already a week into the New Year.  Where has the time gone?  I lost a couple of days to the Virus of Death.  Bill was on vacation so we were trying to knock a few things off the to-do list and get in our last bit of relaxing family time.  We had such plans for Bill’s time off.  We had planned on watching a couple of movies, catching up on tv.  A couple of days a go, Bill said to me “I’m so glad we were able to watch all those movies.”  We laughed.  We did not watch a single movie.  But we did watch a bit of tv, cleared some space off the DVR, and got to relax.

I was thinking about my last post and realizing that despite how busy I was, I found some time for holiday crafting.  I managed a Christmas table runner.  I have bought so much cute Christmas fabric over the last couple of years and I finally managed to do something with it.  It’s a simple runner, strips of varying width, quilted with diagonal lines, hand sewn binding.

And I managed to knit us all Christmas hats.  Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the three of us in our hats, but we all have them.  It was a fun knit.  The hardest part was the pompom and getting one that was full enough.  Bill and Joshua wore them to the farmer’s market ever Sunday in December and got a lot of compliments.  Yay!

Of course with the new year, I’ve been thinking resolutions, but I’m not sure I’m going to make any formal ones this year.  I need to finish some from last year, unfortunately.  Now that I’m thinking about it, my resolution for 2014 is to Get Caught Up.  Catch up on projects I’ve had on my to-do list for a couple of years, catch up on last year’s resolutions, and projects that have been on my mind.  I feel pretty good about this.  Wish me luck!
