I was thinking about New Year's resolutions yesterday afternoon while my husband and I were walking our usual walk to the local coffeehouse about a mile from our home. I decided that the problem with resolutions was that people tend to start out with a list of them, and it's just too overwhelming and pretty much doomed to fail...
So, I decided that I would start with one resolution, and then add a new one at the beginning of each month -- that way, I'll have a whole month to get used to each one, and make it a habit, without worrying about a whole bunch of things I'm "supposed" to be doing all at once. Here's my resolution for January: eat at least two pieces of fruit every day. That's not so hard, is it?
I have ideas swirling around for next month's resolution, but I'm going to try to squelch them until it's time to put it in writing!
I didn't finish much of the stuff on my December "to do" list, so January's looks somewhat daunting. I definitely need to do the blocks for the row robin, and the ostrich is due on the 15th; I have the ostrich figured out, but was having trouble getting my border pieces to work out to the right size, so I finally printed off a bunch of paper foundations last night. I also have a concept in mind for my first journal quilt for the 12x12x4 challenge -- but since it's "art" I'm scared to start it!
