wrapping up the year
No photos...no quilting. Before we dash out the door for a long weekend at the beach - playing with family and relaxing-I wanted to at least post what a wonderful year I have enjoyed being a blogger and part of the Stash Ring. I did more quilting this year of 2006 than any other year and finished more quilts as a result. Many were for charity and many were personal. A good balance for me-one I hope to continue into 2007. My life holds more changes ahead as family continues to go through some major upheavals and that probably will entail more traveling in my future. I have at the moment at least 5 must finish/make quilts that I will dedicate January to accomplishing.
Otherwise, I am declaring 2007 the year of sewing my way to a tidy and organized sewing room.
I won't be setting any monthly goals...I will list accomplishments instead. I want to focus on not so much what I want/need/must do as on results. I am doing another year of ufos challenge on a list I belong to-with one of those being a quilt I started in the only class this year I took. That really seems to be my habit-take a class and the quilt gets started and then put aside. I am signed up for another class in 2007- but it's a learning class for me...I want to learn a new techinque...which doesn't require starting a new quilt...so I should not end up with a potential ufo as a result of this class. I am also signed up for 2 quilt retreats so far. Those should really help me get power quilting time in.
I am going to get back into the morning 20 minutes of sewing again too this year. Less time on the computer if I am to really see a gain in my quilting results. However, I will not neglect this blog nor my fellow bloggers...reading your blogs really keeps me inspired and feeling connected when life is too busy to get together with my quilting friends in person.
I hope the coming year proves to be filled with all good things for all of you!
You can always reach me through my email if you think I am missing in action too much.
