New Things to Learn in 2011



It is said that learning anything new will stimulate your brain and keep it healthy.   So, instead of things I want to change, I've listed things I want to learn or get better in;

Here's my list:

Learn to use the manual mode of my point and shoot camera.

Learn to knit.
 
Sew some more quilts.  (Start on Christmas 2011 gifts.  Wouldn't it be fun to have a handmade Christmas?)

Become more technically savvy with my blog.

Finish the attic!!!!  I'm going here for some inspiration.

Research my house's history

Set up an Etsy shop.

What do you have planned?



Happy New Year, Everyone!

Happy New Years Elizabeth,
you have a wonderful list. I struggled to learn to knit. It did not come easy but I kept at it but now I am glad I did. I am addict to it and it keeps me calm. Clarice

Happy New Year to you!

ps Becoming more technically blog savvy is such a good goal and one I should set for myself too :o)

This is a wonderful and very doable list for 2011. You'll have to read my blog post for tomorrow, as if fits in quite well with one of your resolutions.

That is a wonderful list! I too would love to do some of those things. I learnt to knit last year, though am not very good yet! More practise needed. :) Happy new year to you and your family! xx

Wow! What a great list! I would also like to learn about the manual mode on my camera so I could take better pictures. Great minds think alike! :)

I'd kind of like to learn to knit, now that you mention it. I've quilted for years. Read more books. (Oh, and thank you for all the info! Mighty nice of you and I love to read all I can on something before I make the purchase.) Oh, and thanks for the mention!

I can knit, but would love to pick up crocheting again.
Using the manual settings on my camera is a terrific goal, but I just don't think I'll do it.
Happy New Year!

You have quite a list-now I am feeling lazy!

Thank you for visiting me and Happy New Year to you also.

That's a good list...several of those things are on my to do list too.

Number one...is I need to work on manual mode on my camera. I don't really like taking photos...I just do it because I have to...I'd rather be making stuff.

Finish your attic? Are you turning your attic into a sewing room? That is a wish of mine too...to finish out the attic. I'd make mine into an art studio.

Sounds like terrific goals! Some I'd adopt myself! Always wanting to learn and to improve - here's to 2011!
God Bless,
Kathy

Well, I like your list. Might just adapt it to mine! Thanks for the nod!
