I am taking a break from crocheting the blue & gray scarf. As I was crocheting , I was thinking about what the new year would bring . Will my health continue to improve? Will any of my family members or close friends pass away? Will my living conditioins change?Will my finanicial situtation improve? Will I sell any items on my Etsy site? I am praying for the best outcome in all of these situations. I am also willing to do my part to push forward and change what I can. The rest is in the hands of the Lord. I will crochet as much as possible because each finished project that is sold or passed on as a gift is a positive part of me. I’m also thinking of the New Year in terms of planning my projects. I have a small budget to use toward buying supplies. So, I want to plan wisely. Right now, I am still working on hat & scarf orders for this winter season. I don’t think I have enough time or budget to crochet items to sell in time for Valentine’s Day. Soon, I will decide if I want to tackle making Mother’s Day items. I was thinking about making sachets. Maybe I could crochet a few shawls or bags or flowers. Well, it’s time for me to get back and finish the scarf. I don’t know what challenges or joys are in store for me this year. But, I know the completed blue & gray scarf will be under joys.
