My 2015 Resolutions

Surprisingly, I had a pretty good success rate with my 2014 resolutions.

The point is to create actual achievable, realistic, and measurable goals. None of this 'lose 100 pounds by February,''save a billion dollars' crap that would set me up for failure. Let's do this!

  1. Finish four quilts. Four was a good number. And I didn't even finish the ones I had initially planned to make! I'm in the middle (er, closer to the beginning) of my Christmas scrap quilt. But I have some other ones lined up for sure.
  2. Crochet a sweater. Though I did make a couple sweaters in '14, they were of looser stitching and require a cami of shirt of some sort underneath. So this year, I'd like to make a full tighter-stitched sweater to wear on its own if needed.
  3. Read 25 books. In '14, I got to 22. So three more shouldn't be a huge problem. And as most of the books I read are graphic novels, I'd like at least 5 of these to be strictly text novels.
  4. Make more items for charity. I have quite a stash of yarn and fabric that I will most likely not do anything with. So why not make something for someone who needs it?
  5. Harvest a successful garden this summer. As we didn't even build our garden plot until the end of summer, I didn't get much of a harvest this fall. So my plan is to start early this year! In early spring, remove all the pathetic-looking plants I have, rotate the soil, and start fresh! I definitely want to get more tomatoes this year, hopefully some peppers, and greens.
