Happy New Year!

I hope you enjoy many new blessings this year. No doubt, you’ve come up with a few resolutions. I’ve come up with a few myself.

Near the top of the list is “no more unfinished projects”. I can’t even begin to count the number of unfinished projects I have growing in my craft stash. I can’t help it – I see a new yarn, a new stitch, and my fingers are itching to begin a new project.

The internet is a wonderful network of information. But to the craft primary mind it is a rabbit hole of wonder. Star stitch? Yes, please. Intarsia knit? I would like to try that. Pantone says the color for 2018 is purples? Let me get out my dyes and experiment. What goes with purples? Lavenders and lace stitches. How easily I can get lost.

But not this year. This year I strive to stay on task. Oh, I still plan to get lost in my craft – but I plan to schedule lost time in. I’ll start by setting a timer and search over my internet favorite pastime of Pinterest, and drool over every colorful and stitch-y pin. The hard part will be stopping when the timer goes off. But I can plan right?

Happy New Year!
