I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

A New Year Has Come!

I have not gotten lost or taken by extraterrestrial beings. I have been working on so many things that is not even funny. LOL! One of the things I have been working on is remaking my Vacation DVD's so that they can be played on any DVD player, better effects and I am trying to get one published on you tube as well. We shall see.

I have been working on my Gryffindor scarf, it has been taking a bit more time, as to weave the ends I need to do it during the day time as it gives me headaches to do it at night, it is one of those things that come with age ha ha ha!

2007 in Review
*
I found that the year 2007 challenged me to be flexible beyond what I consider comfort, but it was all great on the long run. I found myself in plenty of situations where I had to change my usual behavior to accomplish victory on several areas. I was successful and very proud of myself. I also learned new techniques for knitting and crocheting and did something I did not think I would do! I am talking about being on YouTube and Editing Films! It is a lot of fun, but it can be frustrating at times. I enjoyed visiting my family and my ancestor's lands.

I don't go crazy on a New Year and start making resolutions without thinking, I do not take that lightly. I guess my list of resolutions are very basic and continue to be true from year to year and here are some. My only concern is to be true to myself no matter what happens. If you want to make it a MEME, consider yourself tagged when you read this, but do it mainly for yourself. I like to write things, because it helps me be more concrete and visualize stuff. So here is my MEME for 2008, I think that next year I will come and revisit and see what things have I accomplished from this list.



11 Resolutions - Goals 2008


1. Learn something New about Crochet or Knitting.



2. Do Something New in Crochet and Knitting.


3. Travel somewhere I have never been before.



4. Maintain my health in stable conditions.

5. Go to my 30th High School Reunion!

6. Eat green, buy green as much as possible.

7. Try some new Yarn.

8. Pray for world Peace and for Protection everyday.

9. Read a book a month!

10. Go to the movies more often.

11. Give A craft class.

So here we go into the New Year with Love, Abundance and Good Health and time to enjoy all these gifts. Looking forward to a positive outcome in our world. Making sure we change ourselves to be more positive and more peaceful. Be aware of your surroundings and remember the good adage, "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is". Always remember that your are loved and protected beyond your fondest dreams by a power bigger than ourselves. As it is in it is out, as above so it be below. Be what you want the world to be an there you will see how your surroundings start to change to match your inner life. Keep an open mind, but don't forget the nature of the beast a snake will always be a snake lol! To another Great Year!

Andy, Happy New Year! I don't think (in January, anyway) it's ever too late to wish a friend this, is it?

You've got a wonderful list of goals for 2008! And I love the remainder of what you had to say afterward, it is a lovely sentiment and full of hope for all :0)

Wishing you and all those you care for and love, all the very best throughout this new year!
