Just to wish all the sewists here a very happy new year . I hope your  
resolutions are achievable. Mine is to be more organised. I can hope  
can't I.

From me, too, the same to all of you. Hah, I don't make any resolutions  
anymore, too, for the same reason. Although I'm constantly struggling to  
give my life a bit more structure; but that's my resolution for every day,  
and every morning I try to see how far I get. ;-) Perhaps the only way  
resolutions work - one day at a time?

My determination for self-improvement for the coming year is to  
organize my sewing spaces (yes, both of them), and to move around  
more....  IOW, exercise. Losing some weight would be a happy bonus.

One day at a time sounds like a good plan to me Ursula. I shall amend my  
resolution to being organised for Toady.
I am probably over ambitious at being organised . My worst trait is to  
do what is urgent and leave the rest, hence my hope to be an organised  
person

LOL.
Hmm Toady sounds like the type who would sidle up to you and tell you  
what he thinks you need to hear or one with bumpy green skin, not sure I  
want one  like that .
I'll stick with the moustachioed Welshman me thinks.

I was thinking it might be the character played by Robert Preston in  
"Victor/Victoria", but I see that is spelled differently.

Oh, I know what you mean. However, it might be a comfort to you that at  
least you *do* the urgent stuff. Some unlucky folks never get over the 'do  
things in order of appearance' phase. That is what I would call a bad  
method.

Today I was so organised to update my household accounts book (which is an  
Excel file). I finally found a solution for some tweak I wanted it to have  
and feel very great about it. However, what feels not so great is the  
deficit that remains after typing in every expenditure of December. It might  
be worse, though, and I will be able to balance things in the course of this  
month. Still... Well, I have to go off the 'spending'-mode and switch to  
'saving'-mode.

Fortunately, I have a lot of sewing projects to start for the summer, and  
more to finish before the winter is over. That should help take the  
restlessness out of me.

But isn't it funny: I had planned to sew today but it looks a lot like that  
won't happen. Instead I'll make the new weeks meals plan and a shopping list  
and go shopping for food. Ah well... At least I will get done something. I  
think, another good idea to improve your life is to be more kind to oneself.  
So, I won't beat myself for not getting one thing done but praise myself for  
getting done something at all. (Mind 'Done is better than perfect'!) ;-)

Mine is to make the time to sew more this year!  I have 5 lovely grandprincesses
and one grandprince charming,
so lots of call for princess dresses and camo items.  I made the girls flirty
nighties for Christmas.  Good luck,
Claire, with your organizational aspirations - I believe in you!
