So. I had a good consider of what I do and what I wanted to do and decided that the first thing I would like do would be to sort out the workshop. With the help of friends, this has happened, I'm now sufficiently organised I can get to my sewing machine.
This in turn brought me to my second goal. About 6 months ago I managed to cut out some shirts for #1Son and DH. After clearing the mending pile yesterday (first time in far too long), I'm now in a position to make them up. (In my defence I was waiting for a pattern wheel to come in at the local sewing shop, and the contrasting coloured chalk).
Then will come the third and most important goal. To make my winter wardrobe. I intended to do this last Summer, but it just didn't happen, lungs getting in the way, but this year I seem to be in a position, that this goal is not unattainable. (Excellent, pat myself on the back).
I would like to point out, that I'm doing this whilst spinning the yarn for a new Winter Snuggy Sweater (it's official, the old one has died!). Also, I'm 2/3rds of the way through knitting a waistcoat for me, and half way through knitting a vest for DH (stuck as need to buy more yarn!) and 2 pairs of socks. Which brings me back to my loom.
My loom has stood pretty much idle for a while, as I really and truly haven't been strong enough to use it regularly, but now I'm attempting to get back to it. And it has fought me every inch of the way! The up side is that I've nearly won, so the towels I may have mentioned are a step closer - yay! I have learnt several very important things from this adventure. I really do prefer weaving with wool over cotton, and I really don't like converting my loom from a Jack to a Counter Balance. It had better work!
So. Here I am, goals set. Nice neat attainable goals. So why do I feel as though I've missed something? Something huge? Hmmm...
