Well, 2015 is over a week old already and this is my first post for the year, my 'post more regularly' resolution is kind of out the door before we even begin the year! :)
It has been hard to get out of holiday mode if I am honest, I love the slow mornings and unplanned days of holidays, with no real routines and lots of chilling out at the beach or daytime crochet without the guilt trip. January is often not a very productive month around here, February and the return to 'normal' life seems to arrive very quickly!
This year I am trying to be productive and stay in that 'holiday feeling' zone. I have a couple of markets in January and not much to sell, so really need to get cracking on some stock!!
And I have bitten the bullet and made a schedule for crochet classes, workshops and crafternoons for the first few months of the year, starting this weekend! Eek!
(so if anyone is around the Crib Point/Mornington Peninsula area and would like to join us, feel free to get in touch! More info in the last photo, sorry about the fuzzy quality of the image!)
This is a new project I am starting, my Summer Hearts blanket, so far it is turning out how I imagined, so that is a win. Hoping to finish this one quite quickly, I am going to try and make more blankets this year. I was quite pleased with making 9 blankets last year, and then I saw a post by the fabulous Patchwork Heart showing the 43!!!! blankets she made last year, how is that for productive! Amazing amount of work, and she works full-time as well! I think I will take a small step towards this level of productivity and aim for 12-15 blankets this year, I hope that is doable for me! :)
( My problem is that I get side tracked, spending too much time at the beach and in the garden, who could resist when this lovely spot is 5 minutes away! ;) )
|Somers beach yesterday. Beautiful!|
....this is the little schedule I made for my crochet classes, I'm hoping there will be someone local on the Mornington Peninsula interested in joining me! :)
I am also doing something very exciting for my little yarn shop, I feel that I have out grown the room I have been using for my stock, it is far to crowded and I can't really expand my range until I address the space issue. So we are creating a proper yarn studio and workshop space just for me!!
We have a large garage attached to our house that has been place where all our junk ends up. We are having a huge clean out and then I am turning most of it into a gorgeous studio for all my lovely yarn, and there will be plenty of space for more yarn and for classes too! Yay yay!!
It should be a win win situation, as the house will be much tidier and easier to look after without all my crafty things spread throughout the place.
So that has also been keeping me busy, I really want to have this finished in a month or so.
Ok, I better stop there, starting to ramble a bit too much I think, I had so much to catch up!
I hope you are enjoying your January and getting lots of hooky time too!
Talk soon, I think I will be starting my Friday Finds for 2015 tomorrow, so I will be back with that. :)
