New Years Desires

OK, 1.20am seems like a perfect time to complete my first post of the year.

I decided I wouldn't have resolutions but desires. Things I would like to be able to do during this year.

So here goes...

  • Get better Organised

  • Appear on the blogosphere more often

  • Make myself at least 2 personal quilts

  • Build on my me-made wardrobe

  • Complete 52 things in 52 weeks

  • Learn to manage my money better (save at least £100 a month)

  • Enter in at least 3 more swaps

  • Spend 15 minutes a night putting things away that I got out during the day

On that note I thought you would like to see my 52 things in 52 weeks list so far... This is a work in progress and is always set for a small amount of change throughout the year. Theres also quite a few gaps until I get closer to those weeks that are still blank. Some of the earlier weeks I might want to repeat, but I will keep you updated on that as we go along.

There you go, my list so far. I will update this and in keeping with one of my resolutions I also aim to blog about my 52 things in 52 weeks list.

Happy New Year to all of you.

Tomorrow I have a post about my Resolution of organisation and an introduction to some things I will be using to help me this year.


  1. Good luck with your 52 things in 52 weeks :-) Trying to find the time to plan the 101 things in 1001 days is a bit of a mare, but I must do it.

    Once I've completed the 1001 days I think I may start doing 52 things in 52 weeks each year, it makes a lot of sense :o)

    Happy New Year LJx

  2. Good luck with this - I am thrilled to have learned the word 'quillow' from this post! I have wanted to make one for ages, but I didn't know that they already 'existed' as an idea. Hurray for new projects!
