At the beginning of this month I wrote a list of things that I would like to accomplish in 2013. My list isn’t exhaustive or profound and it will probably change as the year unfolds. The list goes along like this: make a family tree picture wall using these ledges, buy free weights and use them, do ten pull ups on the hang board, go on a family camping trip, learn how to fish, go fishing with my eldest son, catch a fish, go birdwatching, learn how to make cheese, plant berries bushes, build a herb garden, join a running group, find a dentist, host a faith study of some kind, complete a quilt for each family member… the list goes on.
Since we have returned from our trip up North I have been without a vehicle during the day. In many ways I don’t mind. There are plenty of things to do around our home, inside and out, and thanks to my list I have been keeping busy attempting pull ups and quilting. Because I am a beginner, both at pull ups and quilting, I find these things take up a lot of time. Well, the quilting takes time, the pull ups don’t because I can only do one – haha! Quilting is a fun challenge but when I need a break I return to my knitting projects.
Knitting goes on steadily. My wrists have been a bit sore so I try to pace myself and do some stretches. The shell of my son’s frog is complete. It needs to be stuffed and sewn together. I think he knows that I’m knitting him a frog because he keeps asking me about it. The pattern comes from Knitting Toy Tales. Last night I snuggled by the fire and read through the fourth issue of Taproot. It’s a beautiful magazine and can hardly wait for the next issue to arrive.
