It hasn't been easy.
I don't always have the time to research and apply new found knowledge...and sometimes it is best to just keep it simple.
I have Blogger on my phone, and I am slowly figuring out the little quirks to posting. I still can't post pics where I want them in the blog, but I know there has to be a way to do it and I'm going to figure it out.
Just not right away.
So, here I am. I have my internet up and running (for now). And, I'm going to get my list of UFOs and WIPs on here so that I can keep track of what I accomplish in this new year. Mostly these are my crafting, knitting, quilting & other sewing projects. But, I want to do some family research & work on getting my photos organized if not scrapbooked.
I've already taken time to list the projects that I have laying around my room. I've even taken those projects and sort of arranged the list by category & the easiest finishes. Great start, right?!
1. Small Blue Bag (stitch the bottom closed)
2. Sock Monkey mug rug (hand stitch binding)
3. "Ole Glory!" mug rug (attach binding)
4. "Ole Glory!" mug rug (quilt)
5. "Ole Glory!" mug rug (quilt)

Basket of sock yarns (Morgan, Meredith, Sidney, Me, Darren, James & John)
John's blue scarf (He's been asking for one for the last couple of months)
knit dish cloths
weaving projects (3 are on the rug loom...need more rags to use up the warp)
spinning (wool is in various stages...some washed, some picked, some still in laundry bag on the porch)
spinning (purchased locks...needs combed)

I'm sure there are more projects hiding in a variety of places...I didn't dig too deep into the closet.
I have already seen lots of lists from the other bloggers that I follow. I've also seen a bunch of mosaics (I going to learn how to do that this year too!) Leave me a message if you want me to check out your 2013 to-do list & I will try and be a cheerleader for you!
Get busy & Have fun!
