Amongst the many things I like about blogging, one thing I'm particularly thankful for is having a record of what I have been doing, thinking and feeling. Yesterday I looked back to January last year, to do just that. A couple of things struck me:
I blogged quite a lot (probably more than I have of late),
I was quite productive on the creative front (more than I have been of late), and
I was struck by the January blues (yep - same as this year).
Having the January blues is not really a problem though is it, if it happens every year and it only lasts a few weeks. I'm Looking forward to February though :o)
One thing I did last year in January was started a little house embroidery - one of my most viewed and favourited (is that a real word?) pics on flickr. It amounted to absolutely nothing but was fun to do.
Without even meaning to - I've started another one, but this one has a destiny. Wip pic:
I consulted the random number generator, which picked Kate from paperleaf as the recipient of my little give away of those cool printed habitat tea towels. Kate, can you email me your snail mail address please and I'll get them in the post to you.
My mum is here, and she's going to teach me to crochet tonight. Wish me luck, I think I might need it.
