Resolved to Sew 2012

I've said before that I don't believe that New Year's Resolutions are a good idea and I stand by that; however, if I did make one it would be to Resolve to Sew in 2012.  I will still strive for it, but not as a measurable goal that could be setting myself up for failure.

Finishing my HST quilt last week has spurred me on.  Recognising that 'procrastination' is my biggest stumbling block could be the key to making more progress this year. 

All this has come to my mind as result of Ali at Very Berry Handmade and her amazing Giveaway launched yesterday, entitled Resolved to Sew 2012.  As a blogger I get an extra entry for writing a post on the subject and with such fabulous prizes on offer (yes there are 11 prizes!) I had to give it a go.  I highly recommend you to pop over and take a look at what's on offer, especially as she will post anywhere.

Although this is a little, extra, mini-in-between-post, just to keep up the momentum, here's my stitching progress since last time:

Knitted ripple scarf - this is no longer a ripple! It was working out  too chunky so it's been unrun (twice) and is now being knitted in a lacy pattern. So, basically, it's at the same stage as last time.

Knitted cardigan - tried out for size some buttons that my mother gave me from her stash but haven't sewn on yet.

Zipped pouches - One almost finished, one hardly started.

Bye for now

Thanks Teresa! Glad you are playing along.. Sounds like you are making a little bit of progress, although there is nothing more depressing than unravelling lots of lovely stitches...
