update me

My poor neglected blog! My last post promised daily photos of progress and possibly that killed the whole thing.

This is my first post for 2009. Shameful!

Especially since, crafting formed a significant part of my resolutions for this year. I didn't blog any of them but I did write them down.

One of the things I felt bad/sad about at Xmas last year was the number of awesome kits I had bought last year and the year before and hadn't finished or even started. And the idea that at this rate, my taste would change before I'd even cut some of the fabrics, made me want to cry. And the size of my stash (fabric and yarn) made me hyperventilate.

So. One of the things that I want to do by the end of this year, is be able to stand in my house and enjoy it decorated with beautiful things that I have made. That's almost the goal verbatim! And also to have spent time knitting socks and other things for me, this year. To get some joy back from the stashing and from the crafting.

I'm trying to complete one project a month. And that goal sorta encourages the completion of WIPs, which is good. I finally picked up the kimono wallhanging I was working on on my last boat holiday with the ex. Memories of that are gone and I have managed to finish piecing it all together. I just have the borders to do.

I've also been working on the hexagon project. That is going faster now than it was before. And I have completed one pair of socks for the year - these are a gift and I shall cast on tonight for a pair for me.

Photos soon!
