The past year has been a tough one for me even though so many good things have happened. In my last post I wrote about how I was suffering with depression and that I probably wouldn’t be posting much because of that and the fact that I haven’t posted since then proved that to be true.
I am glad to say that I am doing much better and feeling happier for much more of the time. In fact, a lot of the time I feel like I don’t need to be taking my tablets anymore but then I’ll find myself falling back in to old behaviours and feeling really rubbish again. I kind of wish that recovery from depression was a slower more gradual process that continuously got better rather than feeling completely better most of the time then having huge and horrible dips.
Anyway, this isn’t what this blog is about so don’t worry I’m about to relate all of this back to crochet. My New Year’s Resolution is to quit the behaviours that seem to cause my dips in mood and I’m convinced that one of them is never finishing anything I start and that includes crochet projects.
I have no fewer than 7 crochet and knitting projects on the go right now. So I’m going to set myself the goal to finish them all in the upcoming year. Starting with a blanket that I am already oh so close to finishing but haven’t yet so my goal is to finish that by the end of January.
This should mean plenty of completed project posts and then apart from that I’d really like to continue making my tutorial posts on the basics of crochet, but for now at least I’m not going to give myself a schedule for that. What with working shifts I find it difficult to keep to any kind of schedule.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and best wishes for the New Year xxx
