It's time already to make plans for 2018!
Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl is hosting a Planning Party with lots of fun and prizes, and I figure I may as well play along. It might mean an extra one or two quilts get made if I make plans and have goals.
Let's see. What are my plans for my year?
1. Finish things. I have many quilts that have been started, and have fallen farther back in the queue as I keep starting new things. I want to move the quilt along a little bit and make it smaller. While I don't feel the need to eliminate the line since I like working on more than one quilt at a time, it would be nice to get some quilts progress to the completion stage. Since quilting has become easier with the quilting table, I think this goal will be more reachable than it has been in the past.
2. Have fun. I am hoping that I can maintain the relaxed attitude I have had lately about quilting and keep reducing quilt guilt. If I can keep the rules to a minimum, I can thoroughly enjoy my quilting and genealogy hobbies.
3. Clean and organize. As you know, have been cleaning and organizing my entire house using an adapted version of Marie Kondo's Konmari Method. I have gotten through the main spaces, and decluttered and organized quite a bit. The next space will have to be the sewing room / craft supplies. I think it needs to be done before the more sentimental things like pictures, and I want it done before the out of the way areas like the basement and garage. I have trouble doing this area because I keep wanting to work on projects, but I think that if I dedicate some time to doing both, I may be able to get through it.
