a new month…
Which means montly goal time! I’ve had some trouble thinking of March goals, beyond #1 on the list (for perhaps obvious reasons…but honestly #1 looks like a lot of stuff, but each item is relatively small. Or at least, it is in my head, so hope each will not take longer than I’m anticipating!). March goals are in the sidebar.
I am quite liking this goal setting stuff. It really does give me (and you, if you are interested in watching) an incentive to get things done. Except my tax, I was naughty about that. But I will do it today, I promise! I would probably feel even more like achieving stuff if I had a star sheet (or whatever you call it – the chart you might use for kids where you give them a gold star if they make their bed every day etc). Because, you know, I am like 10, and need that stuff! No, I will make do with the sense of satisfaction that comes with crossing stuff off the list.
Now for the stash honesty. I would have been doing ok this month if it weren’t for generous friends
, winning a giveaway
or the German postal system
! But am not complaining about any of those things, especially the miracle of the Grrman yarn finally arriving! It had been that long that I’d actually forgotten what I’d ordered! But here it is in all it’s loveliness!
Soft as, well, silk, Regia Silk, and the lovely colouredy-goodness which is Kaffe Fassett Regia yarn. Oh the colours, they are divine. Am looking forward to seeing the stripey goodness in this one!
