As today is the last day of the year, I suppose I should post about my resolutions. I do not have any grand scheme to do anything great. There are a few reading challenges that I will start on the first. Those if I have not already posted about, I will post about later.

My goal for the year is to finish all of my crafting projects before I start any  more. That does not sound bad, right? Wrong. I have been working on one cross stitch pattern now for two years. The project is a large one but that is not is what taking so long. Every 5 stitches is a color change and that takes time. When I am done with that one I will post a picture. There is another, cross stitch pattern that I am half way finished with that is of a Victorian house in California. As with the larger one when it is done, a picture will come up.

I also have 3 crochet items that I am working on. A scarf, a blanket for a queen size bed, and then a throw for the couch. The throw I need to get a different hook for, the one I have now is two small. Not sure what I am going to do with the blanket, I don't like the colors that I am using for it. I might just use it for winter nights when the power goes out.  Pictures of each will come up as they are finished.

So reading, and crafts those are my New Years resolutions. Happy New Year, and if you go out and party be careful driving home.

You have reminded me of all the half done cross stitch projects that are shoved under my dresser. I suppose I should resolve to at least clean those out.

Wishing you a happy, healthy new year.

Hi All,
I do read and craft not much to do up all night when not working.

Happy New year to all.
