Today being Friday, I tend to reflect upon the past week and make goals for the next. I know the experts say to make monthly goals, but to keep myself on track, weekly reviews work best for me.
After mailing out the application to the CGOA, I passed the halfway point on the Herrschner's afghan. That afghan has gotten to the point of "I want it done already!", so I keep plugging away at it. If I don't work on it every day, the temptation is there to put it in the closet as a UFO (unfinished object). I know that once I can see the end is near, my motivation will dramatically increase to finish it.
A quick peek at my crochet calendar tells me I've got to get going if I am planning on a submission to Crochet Today for their winter edition. I have the idea and basic sketch, but it looks like a trip to the yarn shop is in order this weekend to get the materials I need. The deadline is July 1, which means I will either have to get it in the mail next week or make my very first email submission.
While at the store, I plan to pick up the summer editions of my favorite crochet magazines. I really need to start filling in the project ideas for the fall/winter onslaught of gift giving.
Surprisingly, I haven't gotten a lot of inventory completed for the fall craft fairs. Well, maybe it's not all that surprising - I haven't really decided if I want to do the fairs this year. My husband is urging me to, but I know the amount of work that is involved, and there's a whole lot of other stuff going on in our lives right now. Maybe a compromise is in order - sign up for 2 or 3 craft fairs and that's it. Hmmm, something to think about.
