17 for 2017- The Beginning.
After all that challenging last year, this year it’s about FUN!
16 hour-long walks thanks Sandra from Wild Daffodil for this idea.
15 already owned books read- I have read a lot of books this year, by and large borrowed from the library, especially once I started my read through the alphabet challenge, which will continue this year, currently reached W. But in the meantime I have acquired two enormous heaps of books which are cluttering up the place. Time to read them.
14 lbs lost- ever the optimist.
13 homemade cards
12 Photograph posts of villages. Time to explore some local villages and share them . I noticed that some readers enjoy these village pictures when they have appeared from time to time. So I figured it would be nice to make them centre stage this year.
11 days out- Always fun to go out for the day. Beats weeding anytime!
10 New things- this can be anything from food to experiences to places. Time for adventure.
9 crochet/knitting projects- I flippin’ well will finish that cardigan!
8 other craft projects
7 sewing projects- I challenge myself to conquer zips this year.
6 non fiction books read
5 research the answer to five questions about my own family history
4 jolly good sort outs, again thanks to Sandra for this one. I shall tackle the tip that is the spare room, where I am supposed to be crafting.
3 find three interesting things- thanks to Murtaghsmeadow for this idea
1 boat ride- rail and bus journeys are so last year!
0 purchases of any sort for new craft sewing or knitting projects, until all stash is used up or I need something to finish something, eg card/ buttons. This is not going to be fun, but it has to be done.
So that’s my 17 for 2017. Wish me luck. And good luck to anyone else brave enough to blog their goals for 2017. Please feel free to leave a link to your 17 for 2017(or similar) post in the comments.
