First, a birthday photo of my young lady:
and just to make you smile, a very happy one of my little nephew:
But I what I was really going to post about was an update on this years goals. I am taking them seriously you see, and that means I need to take stock now and the and see how I am doing:
The Embroidery goal is to finish the grey picture and embroider two more. The grey picture is going really well, so this one is all right so far I think.
The Knitting goal was to to knit at least three sweaters. I recently cast on a cardigan for myself, so this one is all right so far too.
The Sewing was to fix at least four dresses and sew four more AND to sew two tops, three skirts and a coat for myself. Now here I am not doing so well. A a sequined top is almost finished but that is about it. Numerous small repairs don’t count – or do they?
My Reading goal is to read at least 52 books. This one is going swimmingly. We are in week seven and I have finished six books. I am using Goodreads to keep track of this part of my goals. I only signed up this year so the books on the list are just the ones I have read this year.
Translating: to translate at least one book: No progress here so far, and no contract either.
Cooking: to continue the weekday vegetarian experiment I have just started (and perhaps post a few favourite recipes) : This is working out well, apart form the posting recipes part.
And finally my most important goal: to finish the first draft. This one is going – well – not badly shall we say.
