Happy New Year!

I just love a fresh start, and that’s what a New Year always means to me. I always make a slew of resolutions that I never keep and that are totally unrealistic. How ’bout you?

In keeping with that tradition, here’s a couple of mine for this year as regards quilting (and you’ll see what I mean about unrealistic):

#1) I want to finish two things a week.

Yeah, right! I know I can keep this up for a few weeks, but we’ll see what happens come February — haha! 

#2) I want to show at least 2 things every month at guild Show & Tell.

Another yeah, right! I went several months last year without ever showing anything. I’m just trying to encourage myself a bit. And it does go hand in hand with Resolution #1, don’t you think?

Do YOU make New Year’s Resolutions? I do it pretty much for fun, and never beat myself up for not keeping them. My mind changes too often, and I like to leave myself open to be a bit more spontaneous than having to stick to something I said I’d do months ago. While I do have some serious goals that I’m always working toward, they don’t necessarily tie into the New Year — they’re just ongoing all the time. Who says you have to wait for a New Year to implement a good idea?

I hope that all of you have lots of good ideas this year, keep all your resolutions, and get lots of things accomplished! I appreciate that you visit and read my daily drivel. I hope you stick with me, and even bring some new friends along — we’ll have fun this coming year!

  1. I love reading your blog Shelly. Keep em coming 🙂

  2. Happy New Year to you too!! 🙂

    I really don’t make resolutions. I’m just hoping to create more this year and have more family time with my extended family.

  3. My new years resolution with regards to quilting is to think outside the box.
    I took many quilting classes in the past 12 months so that I could learn the technical side of quilting. Once that is in place, then you know what rules you can bend and/or break. I’ve already been making up my own doll and teddy bear quilts and have ventured into embelishing with crazy things (if you check out my blog, I used rabbit fur on my latest finish).
    I want to finish two items a month. Hopefully more but I want to get at least the two.

    Take care, Vivian
