New Month

Tomorrow morning is February 1st... a new month and a great a time to start making some goals.  I've been MIA for the month of January.  Where have I been?  Some exciting locale?  Nope, just stuck in my own head, desperately treading water, trying to stay afloat.  For somebody with Fibromyalgia, the cold winter months are really taxing.  It's very easy to loose your confidence in yourself, and this is where I am now.  BUT  tomorrow is a new month and I've set some goals!
Goal 1:  Next Friday I am releasing a new purse pattern.... I hope.  "Her" name is Bella Rosa Purse Pattern and the above is a little sample.  She's REALLY pretty, if I do say so myself!
Goal 2:  By the end of the month I am to have 10 new Easter Felted creations.  No pictures to show... they are all in my head.
Goal 3:  The last week I am releasing a new Hat Pattern.  I haven't decided which one yet... it will be Evandale (a flapper style), Cambridge (a pill box style cabled hat) or The Tia (a fresh, youthful hat that kind of reminds me of the 80's).
Goal 4:  This is exciting... I hope to have my own Website finished and launched by the end of the month!

Gulp... I think I had better go to bed and get some rest... tomorrow awaits...

Happy New Year!

                                      Christmas card my Mom sent to everybody this year.

I know, I'm a little late in wishing all my blogger friends a Happy New Year, but it's never too late to send well wishes, is it?  Actually I consider today the beginning of my New Year.  DH has gone back to work, most of the Christmas decorations are put away and it's time to clean and straighten up the house.  It's time to start fresh and new .... hence my choice of picture today.  A fresh newborn year... ready to be conquered!  Resolutions?  As always, loose that last 10 pounds, start my own website for my patterns (already in the works, I just need to wrap my head around this computer stuff!), decide whether I'm going to continue with my McBride House felting (after 1 lost parcel, and perhaps two, is it really worth the worry?).  Make my life more manageable... be nice to myself... and read, read, read!  Happy New Year Everybody!!!
