I have been reading several blogs and bloggers' goals for the new year. Last year my resolution was to not make any resolutions...because we tend to set lofty resolutions and not reach them. Last year had its ups and downs but overall it was a great year. Anyhow, I have been pinning and pinning and pinning my several WIPs and that has given me time to think about IF I will make any goals for this year. I think I already have without really 'saying' them.
First: We'd like to sell our house....we thought we had it sold but the person backed out. It was devastating...but all things happen for a reason, I HAVE to believe that.
Second: I want to be more organized throughout my home. With 2 kids things get cluttered and I really dislike that 'look' around my house.
Third: I'd like to keep in touch with my family more and see them more often, they all live atleast 9 hours drive away.
Fourth: I'd like to finish more of my works in progress. I have been working on them in the last 2 weeks pretty heavily. I work differently than some, I like to have at least 5 or more projects at my sewing table at once. I get more done that way...it's efficient for me.
Fifth: I'd like to use more of my fabric. So many quilters call this stash. I think that has almost a negative connotation for me. IF I buy fabric, I'd rather feel good about it. So I am not calling it my stash. I consider ALL of the fabric WIPs....they are all part of a work in progress so I guess it's really part of #4 goal. LOL
There are many more things I'd like to do this year...however, these are top of the list.
Since I wrote this yesterday....I have organized both daughters clothing and removed the small sizes to be sent to Goodwill. That was a BIG item off my list. Plus I finished piecing this quilt....I know not that complicated of a pattern but this fabric is too busy for complicated. I like each fabric individually. It's quite trendy and I know exactly who I will give it to. So I just need to get quilting it...whew...lofty goals...LOL
