Wedding Dress Blue's blog had some wonderful goals for 2011 and I want to share them. Her blog address is weddingdressblue It's kind of a positive goal list which I loved. I'm still going to make my resolution list but not because I want to get them all done by the end of 2011, but I like to keep track of what I have in my cabinet.
Here's last years list. Posting it here so I'll have a record.
New resolution list on the right.
Here's the goals:
1. Quilt! Duh!
2. Keep buying fabric. As Wedding Dress Blue says, it makes me happy! I don't really "need" more, but since I love fabric and it makes me happy, I'll buy more. It was also be unreasonable to say I won't.
3. Keep blogging! This has been a fun way to show off my quilts. I know my family looks to see what I've made. That makes me happy.
4. Use Scraps. Even though the quilt store isn't doing Scrap Therapy anymore, I will continue to make scrap quilts. I love the look of scrap quilts and I don't feel guilty using those for my dog beds and sofa covers. When you have 3 dogs, you do what you can to protect your furniture and quilts makes it look prettier than an ugly sheet.
5. Continue to take classes. Learn more. Create more. I already plan on taking classes next year with David Taylor (at Road to California), Deb Karasik (January guild lecture and workshop); Judy Sisneros 9 patch pizzaz (March guild lecture and workshop); and Anelie Beldon Thoroughly Modern Dresdon (May guild lecture and workshop).
Here's to a great new year.
Thanks for looking.
