It’s hard to believe it’s 2012. I had so many plans for 2011 that I haven’t gotten to yet!
I’ve spent the last week attempting to corral and finish up a few projects that were already close to the finish line. One out of three isn’t bad. I find it hard to believe how many times I start on something only to have the shiny thing syndrome capture my attention and pull me in yet another direction. One of my “resolutions” for 2011 was to not begin anything new until I had cleared my closets and drawers of started projects. I made good progress with several of them, but in the process of clearing them out, found other projects I had begun and forgotten all about!
I remember my mother had a knitting project in one of the family room bureaus. It was white and had half the bodice and a sleeve done. In all my childhood, I’d never known my mother to knit. I didn’t even realize she knew how until I came upon this abandoned sweater. I wonder if she still has it, or if she eventually got rid of it after two moves.
My abandoned projects are mostly quilts. There are several clothing patterns that have been laid out on fabric yardage which are in sizes that will no longer fit. Surprisingly, there are only a few art related ones. Or maybe it isn’t so surprising since I spent most of last year focusing on my illustrations.
So it would seem my New Year’s resolution for 2012 is the same as for 2011. Finish what is already started before beginning something new. Yup. I can do that.
What are your resolutions, plans, goals, dreams, hopes, wishful thinkings for 2012?
