The years just get shorter and shorter. I remember when I was little and Christmas would be over and I'd be thinking "a whole year before it comes 'round again", it seemed like eons upon eons. Now, I blink and I'm getting out the tree again.
I don't have very many resolutions. I don't really like to make them because if I don't keep them then it's just one more thing to feel guilty about. Maybe I should make a resolution about not feeling unwarranted guilt... I guess that I'd like to feel that I keep moving forward. I got a divorce recently and my children and I's life has made a sharp right turn but we're on a good road now and it really just gets better and better.
I won't need to make a resolution about crafting. It seems you only have to make resolutions about things you *don't* like to do. Another craft I've been enjoying lately is embroidery. I've picked up several of Aunt Martha's iron-on transfers and embroidered dish towels and fabric that I'll turn into handbags later.
Embroidery works well for me when I want to sit in front of the fire and watch a movie - can't do that with a sewing machine - and there's no way I could just sit and watch a movie without doing something with my hands. My brain has been in multi-tasking mode for so long that I just can't turn it off like that.
Happy New Year Everyone!
