This is one of my well received work, “Bikers”. It is my personal favorite, too.
It is the last day of 2013. Did you have a good year? Have you accomplished any of your resolutions? Or do you remember your resolutions?
I don’t make resolutions. I don’t write down changes and improvements I want to make although I know it is a good idea to do so.
But I have been keeping in mind to challenge new things, enjoy the experiences and learn something from them.
And surely, I did that this year and am feeling good about myself.
This year in March, I opened my business Facebook page, Knits by Sachi and started showing my craft.
I got 732 likes today. I am pleasantly surprised.
I started selling my original patterns online. I am not too good at photograph or layout, but my teenage son has been helping me a lot with them. I have found some errors in some of the patterns, but I decided to address the issue quickly and make improvements rather than being too scared to publish patterns all together.
I have two knitting patterns published in magazines.
I started blogging! One is this one of course, the other one is in Japanese.
I am no computer guru. I didn’t have my own PC until last Christmas. I always thought social networking was out of my reach, but I have been taking baby steps and overcoming my fear.
And the book! It has not been out yet, but it is going very well, too.
The best thing of all these is that I initiated them all. I made these happen. I wrote to publishers and showed what I do.
I am a housewife who likes to knit, but I can make myself much more than just an at-home knitter.
And next year, well, I have two books in process and if I am lucky, I might be holding two books instead of one.
And I am signing the third.
You will see more of my patterns in magazines,too.
Thank you very very much for all your help and support. Without you, I could never make these things happen.
A Happy New Year!!
