As the calendar turned to February I found myself reflecting on how I did with my January goals. Perfectionist that I am was disappointed to only see half the things crossed off my list.
So, enter negative thinking, but, my word for the year is positive?
I also tried to practice patience for the month of January, but clearly have trouble extending that to myself, no? Maybe my list was overly ambitious to begin with?
So, I spent some time thinking about the positive things that happened in January.
I made my first three pairs of mittens! You can see them here.
This top is ready for the quilter,
some significant progress on the beauty,
as well as this guy,
8 pages completed for my Belize scrapbook,
technically not a January finish as I finished it last night, but SOO happy to have this done and ready to wrap around my neck tomorrow.
A close up of the braided twist of each section.
Also, my blog traffic tripled this month, thanks to lots of visitors from some great linkups!
I have decided that progress is good, so that is what I am focusing on for February, rather than finishes.
I have nothing on the needles right now, so this week I will stitch together row 1 of the hexie quilt
February will also be a face drawing a day, I am still trying to find my own style, so I will be trying lots of different ones. This one happens to be Manga inspired.
And I really want to make this up for our trip in March so there will be one new start!
Linking up today with Lily Quilts small blog meet
So, here's to progress and not being so hard on myself!
