We spent New Year's Eve day trying to make a snowman..as the snow was just the right consistency for packing. The only issue was that the snow on the bottom wasn't packed hard enough to hold the middle "body" and it collapsed under the weight...hence there is no 'finished' snowman photo LOL! Those girls had a VERY good time outside. I took atleast 50 pictures.
As for finishing any more fabric projects...well that didn't happen the last 27 hours of 2009 so I ended the year with 55. I am happy with that...actually over joyed! I didn't expect to get half that done. It was definitely a good year from that perspective.
Now as nearly everyone does I look toward the future year 2010. What is my goal? resolution? you ask. Well I don't 'do' resolutions....because I never keep them. I did go back and re-read what I said at the beginning of 2009.
Here's what I wrote:
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
So it looks like I made 4 of my 5 goals of last year!! No we didn't sell our house yet...it's going on 3 years..for real...and kinda sad. It's a wonderful home. I can only pray that the right family will come along soon!
So my goals for 2010 are.....
First: We'd like to sell our house.... All things happen for a reason, I HAVE to believe that.
Second: exercise more....Lord I HATE saying that...but it's true..20 minutes a day just isnt cutting it anymore. It means I have to get up even earlier than I already do....
Third: Continue quilt designing but balance it with personal projects too in order to keep it more like a hobby than work.
Fourth: Continue to use the fabric I already have...with the necessary Moda fabric additions LOL (can't leave out Moda!)
And to all of you...
Happy New Year! I hope you have a joyous and prosperous 2010!
