Resolutions


It's that time of year when everyone's thinking - new year, new start, what will I achieve/do this year. Me - I'm pretty bad about setting resolutions, mainly because it means I'm guaranteed not to meet them. Surprisingly, I'm feeling pretty positive and enthusiastic this time round - so I'm going to challenge myself for 2011 (I think it's also because I'm going to hit the big 4-oh!)

In no particular order:
  • I'm going to run a 10k race in under 1 hour (I've signed up for a few races already!)
  • I want to lose the last 5 pounds that I've been intending to lose for the last 3 years
  • I'm going to knit 12 pairs of socks
  • I'm going to knit 3 (different) shawls
  • I'm going to blog more
  • I'm going to sew more - quilts (I've just been reviewing what I have - I have enough fabric for quite a few quilts) and clothes for me and the family (again - I have too much!)
  • I'm going to make sure I have a fab year celebrating my 40th
I was going to say I won't buy any more yarn and fabric until I make a dent in my stash, but really, who am I kidding! ;)

Kathy - Yes the photo is one of mine. I took it when we had so much snow. It just reminds me of Christmas.
