I decided to bite the bullet, go for broke, etc., etc., and join an exchange, a biscornu exchange to be exact (Hooked on Exchanging Too). Instead of trying to decide what project to start in the New Year, it's been decided for me! Now I just have to find a chart...and wait to hear that I can join!
I love the idea of smalls. I don't want to work on a project for months and months. In this vein, I've got my sewing machine booked for a tune up and I've ordered a mini drill for making twisted cord for embellishing ornaments and the like.
