I will not bore you with the nitty-gritty (and trust me after many years of doing project planning my lists can get really, really detailed - I miss Gantt charts.) I digress....so here are some of my quilting resolutions...1. Quilt Appraisal Accreditation from AQS - Now I know this cannot be done in a year. That is sort of what has held me back. With the MS it is hard to commit to taking a test a year of April! But my MS is really under control (enough that I really want to go back to work!) So I have downloaded the application, signed up for a couple more courses at Paducah this April, and reorganized my library so my quilt history, textile, and reference books are easier to access.
2. Focus on a select group of quilts to finish this year...watch for new "to do" list on my sidebar. I don't think I will be quite as energetic finishing this year but If I complete 6 full size quilts I'll consider it a good year.
3. I have a long list of "some-day" quilt-tourism events that I would like to go to...I am going to Paducah for the first time this year. I would like to do one other on the list...so hard to choose! So for now it is just one more...
4. Each year my guild makes a quilt for Camp Rainbow, a camp for critically ill children. I'm choosing to be more involved in being a "quilt mom" and getting the 2011 quilt finished. You will be seeing lots of this future quilt in the coming months - we start work on it Monday! On the other
5. Work on my machine quilting. The only way to get better with this is to practice, practice, practice. (I think this goes in the February column....)
My other resolutions include things like lose 10 pounds, eat right, clean the garage....heck they could just be cut an paste from last year! (I did however do pretty good on the quilting ones though....)
