New year - new directions

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 27, 2010, 2:24 AM
First,  I would like to thank everyone that sent me the lovely Birthday wishes!   You're all wonderful and I consider myself honored to have you all as watchers, friends and family. :D

Second,  as I do each 'new year'  I like to try to find something new to learn about,  or a new technique or style to add something to my craft.

I can't say that I've honestly decided yet this year,  as I'm just now getting my wrist back in action - so perhaps in a week or so I'll make a more definitive decision.  For now though,  I think I will be:

#1.  Definitely continuing to improve and learn more knitting styles and techniques.  I'm very much in love with knitting (now that I have *finally* learned after nearly 35 years of wanting to).  There is so much still to learn,  I know this will be a fun road to travel for a long time to come!

#2.  In crochet,  I still am (slowly) developing a technique/style for doing the human dolls.  While I have done a few 'human' type characters (and of course the Holiday dolls)  I still have a bit to learn and perfect - particularly in the area of 'face and hair'...I have made note of many different styles and techniques,  but have yet to settle on my own unique way for my dolls.

#3.  Having rather recently acquired a new beading loom,  I'm keen to work up some beading charts and perhaps create some fun jewelry styles,  but more likely integrate the loom beading into the dolls/clothing that I crochet (and eventually also into the knitting)

Loom beading can create some pretty awesome accents for the dolls or clothes,  or can be used as an actually part of them.

We shall see how much of this I actually do.  LOL.   I'm really basically pretty good on follow through with things of this nature - but I also have quite a bit going on around me and I am *easily* distracted. :blushes:  I will have to keep reminding myself of my goals to keep everything in focus.

With that all said,  I am off to enjoy what is left of the year end Holiday Season  (although not really my favorite time of year,  I do enjoy some of it) - and plan my attack on what projects will be set in motion first in the coming year!

I hope that everyone will have a LOVELY New Year celebration - and a *safe* one as well :D

:heart: Keep on hookin' y'all! :heart:

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!
