I always have about 3 or 4 notebooks on the go at all times - for words, thoughts, ideas, notes.

Wonderful Sarah of therainbowgirl also recently dyed some cotton scrim and muslin for me - I use scrim a lot and so was excited to try out some muslin. Here is the first result - called 'niji' ( 虹 - Japanese for rainbow):

Something else I would like to have a go at this year is designing and making some cuffs and bracelets - not kumihimo but felted, beaded and embroidered. Need to have more thoughts and make more notes about this first, though!
