Resolution #3: Regain my lost momentum in relation to crocheting. I had started a second hat, but didn't follow the project to completion. The fact is, I wish I could instantly have the skill to make something more advanced, but one must walk before one can run, so part of this resolution is really again about slowing down and taking one step at a time. STILL, I hope to get a copy of Vol. 2 of the A Stitch in Time book when it comes out (at the end of March, just in time for my birthday ;). Projects like that gown on the cover are fantastic motivation to keep at it!!

Like many other bloggers, I have compiled my own list of New Year's Resolutions. At the top of the list is a resolution to slow down a bit and not overwhelm myself with too many goals and projects! Ironically, my #2 and #3 resolutions may just negate #1. #2: start sewing again. The first New Year's sewing project I want to tackle is making kitchen drapes, but I can already feel myself wanting to skip over that "must do" chore and instead dive into making something out of this gorgeous heart-printed 20s-30s cotton fabric I bought off Etsy quite a while back. I'm thinking of making it into a dress from a copy of an early 30s pattern I have had stashed away. If I get it done in time, it would be a cute Valentine's Day frock (though perhaps a little too light for the weather).
