I'm going to list some of my goals for 2014. Lord willing these are my goals for 2014.
- Walk more closely with the Lord.
- Read through the Bible in a year
- Get my house more organized
- Get my old sewing machine moved out and given away
- Crochet at least one project that has stitches that I haven't tried before
- Sew at least one small project like a quilt or baby dress
I got a simple Bible reading plan that I hope I can stay faithful to which will help me read through the Bible in a year. I don't just want to read the Word but I want to meditate on what I read. It's so easy to just follow a reading schedule and call it a day. I don't want to do that.
My house is a complete wreck! I think I really need to get into Flylady again. I have her book Sink Reflections. It's an older copy and I'm sure it's been updated but I can definitely use what's in the book.
I have an old sewing machine with a cabinet that was giving to me free so "freely I received and freely I give away". I was blessed a few years ago with a brand new Singer for free from sewing who couldn't use it anymore so I don't need two sewing machines.
As far as crocheting and sewing are concerned I'm excited to learn more skills. I'm in the middle of crocheting Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes. This pattern has decreasing and increasing which I had never tried before. I watched a YouTube video on decreasing and was surprised how easy it is to do.
Sewing might be a little hard for me because it is frustrating changing the needle and trying to figure out the correct tension.
