Not a big commitment--just a few fat quarters that I thought were cute. Small pieces of fabric with huge potential. It'll be fun to see what they end up becoming. Kind of like my hopes for this year. I have some ideas of what I'd like to see happen, but I'm sure there will be dips and turns, the need for a seamripper, and some successes--with a little luck, maybe even on the first try.
I'm not big into resolutions, but I do have some desires/wishes for 2007.
1. You know the old grandma in church who presents new babies with afghans crocheted with red heart acrylic? I've decided that I want to be her. Minus the old, minus the red heart.
2. My mother-in-law, on Sundays, always seems to have a pot roast in the oven. If she or my FIL see someone new in church, they make a point to introduce themselves and invite them over. Hospitality--welcoming people into one's home and showing them love. That's what it's all about. I want to be more like that. I want to care less about whether my home is clean enough and more about whether my heart is open enough to help create a sense of belonging.
3. That's about it. I could write a whole litany of things to do and ways to improve myself. But I'll spare you. Really, you'd be bored. It'd be stuff like: get my teeth cleaned on a regular basis, be more organized, be more patient with the kids...you get the picture.
4. One more: get my oomph back. I used to have oomph. I've lost it somewhere along the way--between potty training, shuttling little ones around in the van, and being sleep deprived. I want to find something this year to be passionate about. I'll let you know if I find it.
Happy New Year. I'm looking forward to seeing how this year unfolds for all of us. :)
