My goal for 2013 is PATIENCE–with myself, with others, with life. We never know what is around the corner, but with patience we can get through whatever comes our way. I won’t be able to sew as much this year because of working, but, maybe, with PATIENCE I can feel really good about what I do get done.
2012 has been a very good year for our family. Also, for the goals I made then. Quick review–
1. Finish that Jewel Box quilt if it is the only thing I get done. Well, already it won’t be the only thing I get done, because I have another finish already. But, it will get done. Really.
I ACED this one. The quilt top is finished! It will go to the quilter sometime this year and be a special quilt for that amazing daughter of mine.
2. Handquilt a large quilt. I know which quilt it will be. I just need to get it on the frames and get to work. In late February or early March.
Whoops! Didn’t happen. Isn’t going to happen this year. Right now I have either six or seven finished tops waiting for quilting. Checkbook-willing I will have them professionally quilted this year. There are times and seasons in our lives and I have to accept that right now is NOT my handquilting season.
3. Share a tutorial a month. If I make this a priority I am hoping it will push my creativity. But, I might be lazy for January and let the balaclava count since I did two in December.
Ah, so close! In 2012 I posted 10 new tutorials (not counting the balaclava). You might want to check out the TUTORIALS tab above to see them. My favorite for the year? I have no idea. The success of Fading Charms and Film at Five has been very gratifying, but I don’t think I have a favorite.
4. Love my fabric and not feel guilty for it. I don’t have a small stash, but I don’t have a large stash either. I guess it is just right for me. And I really do love it. What a feeling of satisfaction it is to just browse through and imagine beautiful things and then see them come to pass. Bliss!
Loving fabric is something I can do. Got that one down. More of that this year, too, while I am busy being PATIENT.
