I’ve been ruminating on it for a few days now, and have decided to jump in.
Hey, after all, it’s only 11 things . . . in a whole year . . . right?
I can handle this.
It’ll be good for me.
You could join, too.
It’d be good for you as well!
Frankly, it took me several days to come up with 11 things I want to work on for an entire year.
Most of you probably realize by now I’m a flitter, and committing to something for an entire year . . . well . . . that’s just such a long time . . . but then I realized that I’ve been faithfully blogging for longer than that. I’ve been quilting for nigh onto 36 years. I was even married for 23 years once! I’ve raised two kids, earned a college degree, and stuck with a full-time job for 15 years. Surely I can do this for one measly year, right?
So I took a few minutes to concentrate, took a break for some ibuprofen, came back and worked on it some more, had a nap, left it alone for a couple days, slaved over it some more, went to coffee with my best friend, visited my daughter, quilted some, took more ibuprofen, slept, and finally, I think I have my list.
Wanna see it?
Here it is:
1. Faithfully keep a daily diary
2. Finish 100 (quilting or sewing-related) projects this year
3. Get my studio whipped into shape (be more organized)
4. Make major improvements to the ranch shack
5. Ride my horse more
6. Pay more attention to my health
7. Establish some routines (personal and work-related)
8. Decrease my fabric stash
9. Decrease my number of UFOs
10. Get back to work on competition quilting
11. Cultivate my creativity
We’re all posting updates around the 5th of each month, so I’ll elaborate more on my list during those updates, and let you know every month how I’m doing.
