I haven't been very organized with tracking my finished things, so I'll save my first yearly recap for the end of 2010. As for my resolutions...
1. Blog consistently. I enjoy my little blog and the encouragement I get from it. As all bloggers do, I really love getting comments. :-) My goal is posting at least twice a week. Not a difficult goal to meet, I don't think. If I have no sewing or knitting projects going, be prepared to hear about my attempts to make my personal style more interesting!
2. More "crafty" sewing. I have recently completed one throw pillow cover for my living room. Three more to go. I also want to finish up my older son's quilt and maybe start on one for my baby in the fall. I just want to do a little more general crafty sewing cuteness instead of only cranking out the clothes.
3. Sew and knit from stash (almost) exclusively. Many sewing and knitting bloggers make this resolution. I need to this year because a) I'm looking forward to a move this summer (YEA!) and don't need any more stash to move, b) I'm trying to be more frugal - just a personal goal, and c) I just can't claim to NEED any more fabric at the moment, and the stash is at a point that may soon start to cause marital drama despite my very kind and understanding husband. Lining notions, and trims are exempt from this goal, and I'll allow myself a tiny bit of leeway - maybe one cut of fabric every two months to sew up immediately.
So, I think these are achievable goals. Maybe writing them down here will hold me more accountable to myself.

1. STOP BITING MY NAILS. :-) This has been my personal quest since I was a child. I succeed for a few months and then fall off the wagon. My most recent period of nice, long nails was about July-September this year. I can do it again. Starting today.
If you've read this far, thanks. :-) I have a sewn and knitted ensemble to show tomorrow! That's right - a two-fer!
