Lovely bags! My 2009 goals are: to sew a box bag (hee hee, now that I finally figured out how to sew, I remembered via this post that I've been wanting to make these for a while), to make my first quilt, and to knit my first pair of socks.


My resolve for the year is to spend more time sewing and knitting for myself. I make things for others all the time.

My goal is to knit down more of the stash! And maybe use my sewing machine more often.


One of my goals is to not buy any yarn until June, and still turn out a project or two a month using stash. So far so good!


I agree, resolutions are bad, goals are good. I create an "I will" list, a sort of affirmtion statment of things I'd like to concentrate on (sleep more) to specific tasks (knit a project a month). So two big goals this year:
Knitting goal - start a blog (ignore the lack of link to the as-yet non-existent blog) and
Personal goal - give away/donate/sell half my stuff. Seriously, I have way too much!


Love the box bags. Too cute!

My 2009 goal is to move into a new house without the luxury of a military move and actually enjoy the process - the sorting, the selling, the giving, the cleaning, the packing, the moving, the settling in again. Okay, maybe not ENJOY the process. Perhaps TOLERATE the process without losing my mind.


Love your sewing projects! My resolution this year is to try and stay mellow. With a baby in the house, it's easy to get exhausted sometimes hard to keep the big picture in focus. I'd also like to make some progress on my (now multi-year) hand quilting project. And knit a couple of things this year - hopefully something for me!

thesis writing

Extremely long but very useful and informative article. How i wish i can do all of that in a short period of time. But for sure doing those will produce results. I will try to spread your words through my blog and link it back to you. Thanks a lot for those tips.
