New year, new beginnings

I've made my usual New Year's resolutions again....
You know the ones... the "taking better care of myself and losing some pounds" one, the "less TV/ more reading" one, etc....
Happily, I think I've found the secret to making the scales see things my way-
I've also decided that in the coming year I plan on trying to blog a little more frequently, and although I will still be writing about the critters and the other farmy goings-on around here, I'm also going to start sharing with you some of the things coming out of my sewing room. This was actually my intention when I started this blog three years ago... (Three? WOW!).... to share my creations whether they were good or bad; as some of you know certain projects turn out just great, while others seem to be possessed with an evil force intent on destroying your sanity. I have so much I want to accomplish this year, and some of my biggest goals are: I want to make a quilt, I want to go through all my hundreds of patterns and organize them by putting the ones I want to make the most at the top of the list, and.... I want to re-open my poor little neglected ETSY Shop for business once again.
Am I being unrealistic? I don't think so...
Will I feel overwhelmed? I'm sure of it.
However, I have several crafty long-time blog friends along a couple of new friends I've met recently that post about the projects they are working on, and seeing other people's creativity at work has inspired me to retreat into my sewing room and get busy.
I'm looking forward to writing about my projects, and of course there is never a dull moment with Smokey, the chickens, and the sheepies... oh, and sweet little Lily, who is doing a great job in the potty training so far.
I hope you'll keep dropping by in 2011 to see what's going on around here!
