Happy New Year!
What a great time of year, a time to reflect on the past year and review if goals have been attained, and plan new goals. What are your goals? Are they geared at getting by or will they be in the direction of making your soul sing?
At the beginning of 2014 I was challenged to make some quilting goals for myself, by my lovely and high achieving daughter, Rebecca (http://rebeccabookreview.wordpress.com). I accepted the challenge and set a goal for myself to complete 2 quilt projects a month, any size, and to document these goals by starting a blog. I did complete both of those goals, just barely! Here is a listing of the quilts:

I think this little Valentine quilt was my favorite:
In addition to the quilting, I started the blog.
After some reflection, I am adjusting my goals to better achieve what I hope for in 2015.
- Improve my machine quilting by reviewing or completing all of my machine quilting classes on Craftsy,
- Make at least 6 bed size quilts this year
- Make most of my Christmas presents for 2015
- Try to increase my blogging to twice a month
- Sketchbook journal once a week
There it is! I guess by publishing this, I am committing to these goals for 2015. What about you, have you made any commitments to yourself?
