Taking control

It is already January 25. at first I thought it was a little late to set goals/resolutions for 2015, but that is just an excuse to not do anything. What I know is my eating is out of control, and I sit on the computer all day, never touching my yarn or thread. I know it is fear, fear I can't do it, fear of being laughed at, fear of other things. so it is time to take control. I have so many cross stitch projects I want to work on, so much fabric, and hours of free time every day. so is time to use it. so setting a few goals: (to be worked on/completed on 1/26 and 1/27)
1.  will list cross stich kits/patterns I want to work on this year, as well as yarn projects.
2.  will work out a time frame/schedule for computer and stitching

Not  a lot, but it is a beginning. Good start.

we are moving soon. we will be renting a house out in the country. an old 2 bedroom farm house. a lot smaller than where we are now. I am worried, and afraid. we are losing this house. they foreclose soon. this new house will allow me to keep my furbabies, and even have a few chickens. the floors are all even, no upkeep needed, new windows, will be nice. but is still sad, to lose your home.

yarn projects

We got to spend time with Amanda on Monday after my appointment with the neurologist. She found a skein f yarn in Joann's that she wanted, so we bought it and I promised her a scarf. I cast on today and will knit until it is gone. I am hoping to have it done next week. is a chunky yarn, and being knit on size 15 needles, because I didn't have any size 17, (which I am hoping to find on Friday) I also got to order two cowl kits online that should be here next week, as well as one scarf I cast on and knit 5 rows of for me, plus the yarn (an expensive self gift) for one more scarf, a set of fingerless mitts, and a pair of socks. What is sad is that is just the yarn around my chair. sighs. oh well. Is not a great list but is a list of some kind, showing I am getting something started.

In the Beginning

New blog, new hope. Am starting this for me, to write about my interests, furbabies, and progress on crafts. need to find a few pictures, and have a lot to set up. With Ruthie's death and other serious health changes in my life, I felt it was time to start a new blog.
I know I want to create a project list for each interest, and to post photos of progress. beyond that I will have to think bout it. I am hoping to have this all up and started by Monday, the 27th.
