Chapter 78, The long, long, loooong list of wips

Okay, I have a confession to make. I have way to many wips, and way to many wants and patterns. So I have set myself some goals. Some are only for the year, others will take a lot longer. I decided to get on the "word for 2012" bandwagon. after a lot of thought i have chosen "Perseverance" as my word. I think it fits in so many ways. I need to complete, use up, and make do, all things that make me think of the 1920's and 1930's and the great depression. The only way women made it through those tough times was to persevere. I admire the women who managed to keep their families fed and take care of their children during that time. they made do with what they had, and they worked hard to make ends meet. they had to be creative with what they had, and create their own beauty and things to make them smile. So that is my goal for 2012. To persevere. as for my long list of wips and wants, just the stitching came out to over 20. there is no way I will be able to complete 20 stitching projects, plus the knitting, crochet and quilty things I want to do. So although I will list them, I am hoping to get through 6 or 7 this year. I have also decided that other than the quilt show I am going to in February, I will cut way down on my spending of craft supplies. My goal is to spend no more than $60 this year. I have enough yarn, fabric and floss to keep my busy for a very long time. I also have a ton of books on embroidery, quilting, and cross stitch. So here is to persevering in 2012.
