Starting as I mean to go on....

...sailing into the new year on the back of a big deadline. I'm starting to realise that I do love my job after all; it's just that the relationship is a lot more complicated than I ever imagined it could be.

Only one New Year's Resolution: I'm going to try to remember people's birthdays this year. And hope to make up for all the ones I forgot last year.

how do you register your block prints on fabric? Is there an easy way i am not thinking of?

Oy! I'm the same way! Terrible about remembering birthdays! Yet another resolution to add to the list. Happy New Year 2008! (Love the blog!)

My friends think I'm super-organised. I know I'm just very lazy but here's how I deal with remembering birthdays:

Each year when I get my new diary refill (usually around early September)I go through last year's diary. Anything (like birthdays or anniversaries) that needs to be carried over from year to year is written in red. I simply transfer the red bits to the new refill (in red of course, and remembering to update ages if I know them).

Then it's a simple matter of keeping an eye out each week for red bits. (Obviously I make sure I only use blue of black pen for anything else)

The begining of the year is so fresh and full of promise and inspiration. I agree about the birthday thing. I know how much it means to me when people remember mine!
Your endeavours with needles and wool always inspire me and I have finally taken some "baby crochet steps"

Registering prints... I just do it by eye. I've been trying to design patterns that don't need close registration. For small repeats, I keep one edge of the block straight, and line it up with the previous print. It's not perfect, though.
