Yes indeed, I finally pulled the last loop last night while watching a movie with my husband. I had every intention of starting the whipping tonight, but I took my daughter to the mall in Hagerstown, and well, when you take a teenage girl anywhere, it's not a short trip! And we don't spend too much time together anymore with her school and work schedule. I took advantage of "our time". We had a good time. I returned something and she bought a few things.
Soo I am now home, and ready to get to the whipping first thing tomorrow. I am going to finish this before the year is over, woo hoo :)... I don't have any idea really what my next project will be. My mind is going back and forth between a couple of things.
I got an email the other day in my daily devotions. It all had to do with making New Year resolutions. I'm not one to make them. But in this article it talked about making a list. Something to do each month out of the year, and then at the end of the year see what you were able to get accomplished. I thought about this, and am seriously considering it. I was thinking of different things. What month I will choose to jot them down in, I don't know yet. But I will pick some easy ones and some not so easy ones. Some could be a project, work on filling my Etsy shop up, another could be eat better, exercise, read a book, organize a room from top to bottom, etc. I'm thinking this could be very do-able for me. Might even develop some better habits, since I have a month to accomplish the task. If at the end of the year I achieve some, that would be great! And if I don't, that's ok too. Goals are good. Often we can't grow unless we fail. I don't want to beat myself up about things I don't accomplish anymore. It is what it is. I'm one person and can't do it all. No matter how much I WANT to do it all, it's just not possible. As I get older, I'm really realizing that, and I'm feeling peace from it. That's all that matters.
Here is my rug all ready to be whipped! After it's whipped, I will steam it again and block it and make it square by pinning it to the floor where I do my steaming. This piece will be going on the chest at the end of my bed
I am sooo ready for a New Year, how about you? The Christmas lights are down outside. It was warm enough out there today for hubby to do that. Tomorrow I will also take the lights and ornaments off the tree so George can take the tree back to the farm where they dispose of it. I was going to wait till the weekend, but he seemed to want to get some things done, so I will will do that for him. The rest of the decorations will stay up till the weekend.
I hope you all welcome in the New Year safely. If you go somewhere, safe travels to you. George and I will be going to a party for a few hours to be with some friends. Looking forward to getting out and socializing a bit with them. Doubt we will be up till midnight. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the New Year has in store for me and my family. I just pray it's a healthy one.....
Enjoy the rest of your week. I'll talk with you in 2011 !!!
