Planning for the New Year

January 07, 2020 1:40 PM | Sharon Sacco (Administrator)

It's that time of year again, the beginning of the New Year.  The crazy shopping, decorating, and entertaining has finally calmed down.  Your holiday guests have likely returned to their normal lives at home.  Hopefully you now have a little time to breath.

I'm not really a big fan of New Years resolutions.  Most of them fall by the wayside by the end of the month if I believe the smaller crowds at the gym then.  However, I do regard finishing the obligations of the holidays a good time to look at what I am doing and plan ahead.

One thing I am determined is to finish at least one lingering bobbin lace project on a pillow.  There are so many to choose from, which is a shame.  I would like to get the carp-dragon piece finished.  It was started in the last Year of the Dragon.  I would like to finish it before the next.

So, I encourage everyone to do the same.  Is there something that you can finish?  If not, is there a project that you would love to start?  After all, challenging yourself is good for you!  And if you do get something done, remember that you can enter it in the Big E.  We would love to have a great display of lace for everyone to see.

    I look forward to seeing your dragon, Sharon. Show and tell at an NELG meeting before it's Big E debut, or after it wins first place?
