A new year, and a new monster :)
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and a happy (and safe!) New Year :) We spent time with hubby's family, and had a big luncheon on New Years Day - there were glitches, but it went fairly well, nobody went home hungry, and we now have folding tables, extra plates, silverware and glassware for 24 people - massive shopping was involved :D And on to 2016!
I didn't specifically make "resolutions" because they never work for me, but I did make a decision to try to improve a few things - eat less, move more, shop less, sew more - those are the main ones. Along the sewing front, I want to try making new designs of bags (zipper, drawstring etc.), from the thousands of pins I have, the (
hundreds) ( dozens) ( tens) ones of patterns I've bought over the years, and the dozens of tutorials I've saved to my computer :D One a week would be fabulous, since I certainly have the fabric and notions to do that - kind of a 52 in '16 goal, if you will :D I don't know if I'm up to it, and as we all know - stuff comes up - but at least it's something I'm aiming *towards* :)
Pizap, and it's possible he might still be a bit hung over ;) He counts as 1/52/16 :D
