Can I still say ‘Happy New Year’ this late in January? I mean, it’s nearly February…
Thinking about it, I think this is the perfect time to start a New Year. January is such a grey and depressing month, but February is the end of Winter and so nearly Spring and sunshine.
It’s been a while. I regret I’ve had nothing to say and done so little in the way of crafting – mostly because of life, but also because of writerly distractions. And of course Christmas.
Since then, though, I’ve been planning my year and my goals for 2018, not really being one for resolutions.
My scrapbook of cross stitches from last year is still going. This year, my goal is to complete the large collection of mini-kits. I’m also beginning a new scrapbook of mythological beasties and beings, which will entail creating patterns too…
I have a few crochet projects planned too. Well, one. A giant llama. No doubt other projects will suggest themselves as the year goes on.
And my last goal is to plan, almost completely, the story currently distracting me from most things and write the first part.
These goals, however, mean that I will probably not be writing here as often as I have done previously, although hopefully not as infrequently as in the last few months. At least once a month, I hope.
