Let me introduce you to a resolution that will be easy to keep - try something
New to Me in 2013.
The emphasis is definitely upon the trying, success or otherwise is not the point. Several years ago I adopted a resolution that I would try something new every month for the year. One of the things I tried was signing up for an evening class in Patchwork and Quilting at the local school, and you can see where that got me :)
My resolutions were not all craft-related though and not all of them were successful. Having a reflexology session was a particular low, after 5 minutes I couldn't wait for it to be over!
So, I have decided to do the same again this year and I am hoping you will join me in my quest to try something New to Me each month in 2013.
Here's the plan:
Every month you will try something that you haven't attempted before, be it para-gliding or paper-piecing and write a post about the attempt.
On the 25th of each month I will open a Linky party for that month so that everyone can share their stories. We will, hopefully, provide each other with lots of inspiring activities that will keep us motivated for the year.
I have created a Blog Button for the Challenge (now that was definitely new to me!) so grab it and add it to your post and/or sidebar and get thinking about what you would like to try that is New to Me in 2013.
If you are looking for some inspiration for new activities here are some that might fit the bill;
Try paper-piecing with Quiet Play's And Sew On BOM
Try designing your own paper-piecing blocks with The Littlest Thistle's Everything and the Kitchen Sink SAL
If you have always fancied having a go at embroidery check out Feeling Stitchy for the current New Embroidery with Vintage patterns competition
Or if knitting and crochet are on your list to try this year, check out the Purl Bee
Then, of course, there is always Craftsy where you can try your hand at gardening, bread-making or maybe a bit of cake decorating.
Of course, the more adventurous you are the more inspired we will be, so join me in making New the watchword for 2013 and get ready to link up on the 25th!
