Can you believe 2011 is over. I don't have much to show for it project wise but I am not discouraged. The new year is right around the corner and hopefully there will be some progress with the items I am able to produce.
Sooo what did I do this year:
I was able to finish one scarf (I promise I just haven't uploaded the finished pics yet),
start a cowl,
and leave a lot of things unfinished (no pics, just go back a few posts).
Yay me!!! (actually epic fail but whatever).
I am considering merging my two blogs so come follow me here as well so you don't miss anything. More on that once I make a final decision.
Wishing all of you a great 2012.

Every day 15 minutes will be devoted to my "creative" side. Be it sewing, knitting, or even sitting down at my piano for 15 minutes. I think 15 minutes is a good start. We'll see.
For the rest of the month I am going to be working 15 minutes on my UFO's. Yeah, I have way to many and I can't stand it. Off the top of my head I know of a scarf, a sweater, a skirt, and 2 shirts that are unfinished (oh, and a dress).
Before I start anything new I want to make sure I have a clean, fresh start.
Here is a scarf I have been working on since January 23, 2011. GASP. It has been sitting on the needles forever. Oh well.. I will get it done.

Don't expect anything major though. As the post title implies I am taking baby steps. Only one or two small crafting goals per week. It may be something as simple as picking my next pattern or it may be to do a couple of steps to finish a UFO. I refuse to set myself up for disappointment. Just coming back to blog is really major progress for me.
So my sewing/knitting/crafting goals for this week: Finish the seam and belt on my shirt.
I did finish the majority of the New Look 6915 shirt I was making but somehow never got back to finish the bottom seam. I am going to make a belt to go with it too, I think. I am not 100% sure on that but I will decide and do it or not.
I really don't like posts without pictures so here is a random pic of a nest my daughter found while we were outside gardening.

Even though I haven't been sewing much (new job) that doesn't stop me from buying sewing items. Why should it? After perusing the New Look catalog at Joann's I decide to pick up a few patterns and some notions that I needed.
New Look 6648 (chill mode)
I love this style of shirt. Once I find something I like I am likely to have LOTS of them. I can think of 3 RTW shirts in my closet that are like this. Two of them are the same but just different colors. I have a few knits in my arsenal to make this.
New Look 6915 (work mode)
And another I like what I like shirt. I have some RTW shirts very similar so I wanted to see if I could just make a few more that I like. My work wardrobe is lacking and with spring knocking on the door hopefully I can whip up something wearable for work.
Somebody, please kick me back into sewing gear!!! This weekend I was going to sew but I just needed a weekend of nothing. I was able to recharge my batteries some and hopefully can get back at the sewing machine soon.
