The year of Fiber

I know its been a really long time I stopped to post what's been going on in Idaho. To say a few things have been going on is an understatement. So here it goes in a nut shell-

In July hubby was laid off with a whole bunch of other Americans and he is still looking for a job. So to say the fiber buying has slowed is another understatement.

I found a job as a part time lunch lady. I really like it and the pay isn't all that bad. I work 3 hours a day at a really fun school and work with some really fun people.

I haven't been teaching knitting or spinning classes for the months of Nov. and Dec. I am not sure if I will be going back to the yarn store in the new year.

Of course we have been busy with kids and all their events, parties and games.

Now that Christmas is over its now time to start to think about goals for next year. I am taking a page from the Knitmoregirls and came up with a theme for the year . 2011 is going to be the year of fiber. I have been teaching crocheting, knitting, and spinning for over 18 years, which means I have spent most of the time working on samples or thinking about each project I have worked on as possible class. Well this next year I want to work on whatever I feel like. Design some, make things for the fun of it not just for a purpose. In other words have fun again.

So here are my goals for 2011 in no particular order.

1.Keep a journal on what I make and finish so that at the end of the year I can look back and see how productive I have been.

2.Get back to my fleece study. I started it last year and had to stop to work on other things.

3.Do a much better job of keeping up with my blog , facebook and twitter. As I have sent it up I will have family stuff on facebook, so that the family will see I'm not dead but just busy. Twitter will be where I talk about my daily fibery things and this blog will be were I post pic's and other information about projects and events I attend this year.
 ( by the way I am yarnsnthreads on twitter)
 4. Read through the Bible in the year.

5. Do some type of giving back each month. Over the past few month we have been so blessed by all the giving we have received that I really want to give back to others.

6. Get healthy again. The stress of having hubby out of work has caused me to stress eat so I have not felt as well as I should and can so I want to eat better, exercise and generally feel batter. Loosing a few pounds would be a bonus.

7. Learn to weave.

As you can see I have all kinds of things planned for the new year. So please stop back by and see what happening.
