I really thought I published this post back in January. Half way through the 2nd month of the year isn’t too bad, right? The memory is slipping! Could that contribute my lackluster goal completion?
Goals for 2014:
1. I will blog at least once a week. Blogging is new to me and I have a ton to figure out.
I didn’t blog every week, but there were 77 posts and over 14,000 views.
2. I would like to learn how to paper piece.
3. I am going to join the Fabriholics Anonymous fabric fast for 6 months.
I did make an effort, but it was pretty weak (recap). I like to buy fabric, what can I say!
4. I am going to make the majority of 2014 quilts from my fabric stash.
I wasn’t good about this, so it is back on my goal list.
5. I have too many WIPs right now. I need to finish one WIP for every new project that I start.
I did finish a few WIPs, but still have many more to go. I was able to finish 12 quilts in 2014.
The challenge is to finish more WIPs/UFOs in 2015! I have joined APQ’s 2015 UFO Resolution.
Sidenote: I already have 7 of my 24 UFOs completed on my APQ UFO Challenge list. Whoop Whoop!
6. I would love to sell a quilt or be commissioned to make a quilt for someone.
I was asked to make a quilt for a friend, but said that I would rather teach her to quilt. I would have no idea how much to charge for my time. My sister’s boyfriend also requested a quilt after I sent one with my dog, Carson over Christmas break. I think that I have convinced my sister to buy my Janome and start quilting. How fun would that be?
7. I will create more wall hangings and table runners for my house.
I started 2 table toppers, but didn’t complete them in 2014.
8. I will make a quilt to donate to Quilt of Valor or Project Linus.
I didn’t make a Quilt of Valor or Project Linus Quilt, but I did donate 2 baby quilts and a dozen pillowcases to a children’s hospital.
My sister shared that one of the pillowcases was given to a 3 year old girl who was injured by a dog. The child was in for reconstructive surgery.
9. I would like to continue to assist/work for the local long-arm quilt business.
There was not time for work this summer! I was traveling and seemed to fill my time without extra work.
10. There will be no ER visits due to quilting accidents involving a rotary cutter. A new rotary cutter blade is much cheaper.
No ER visitis or incidents with the rotary cutter. I had plenty of other dr appointments, but non due to carelessness or a dull rotary cutter blade.
I streamlined my 2015 goals after seeing my 2014 completion rate. Here’s to 2015 being a year of completion!
