Episode 37: Happy New Year

Hello my dears,

Well, I didn't intend to be gone for two weeks, but I decided that I would be better off using the time between Christmas and the New Year in planning out my goals for 2018. But I am back and I have loads of fun things to talk about!


I'm hosting a knitalong/makealong from January 1 - March 31, 2018. Read this post for more in-depths information. And be sure to head over to the Ravelry group to tell everyone what you are planning to make!

I'm starting a new job on Monday. I will be working at a beautiful quilt shop which also happens to be right next door to a gorgeous yarn shop. I consider myself very lucky! I've been making loads of goals for 2018 including personal and creative ones. I will be sharing more about them in the next few weeks.
