resuming normal life

Ashley and I on New Years : )


Hiya guys! I am back from Wales, and though I didn't want to come home, now I am ready to resume my regular life and get going in 2008.

I guess step one for resuming normal life would be to unpack. Hmm. Must consider this at some point.

Step two would be to get on top of my New Years Resolutions. I try to make my New Years resolutions fun and attainable. No big "I am going to excersize everyday" or other sillyness that is going to last a week and make me feel bad for not following through the rest of the year.

Last year, I made a resolution to learn how to knit a hat. And I did! I knit at least five hats last year and it was fun, productive and educational.

This year, I have decided to learn how to sew properly. I know how to do some very basic thing, like thread my machine, cut out a pattern, and other stupidly easy things, but I want to know how to do make good quality, complicated garmets.

I also want to open an Etsy shop. That is a more challenging resolution, but I still want to do it.

Do you have any resolutions this year?

Your resolutions sound great! If you ever have any sewing questions, I can always try to help!

P.S. this is a great book i just picked up from Anthropologie. So many good ideas. http://www.amazon.com/Lotta-Jansdotters-Simple-Sewing-How/dp/0811852571
