Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 2009 has been a year of learning. Like many of you, we have had wonderful opportunities come our way, and we have had our challenges. Through it all, I am most grateful to have the ability to progress, and to learn along the way. I'm looking forward to 2010.

“The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.”
Earl Nightingale

What goals are you setting for 2010? Do you have goals related to quilting? I know I feel intensely when it comes to being around anything in the quilting/ sewing/blogging world.
My friend Rae Ann of Cutie Pinwheel just e-mailed me and said she plans to make 36 quilts this next year. (wow!)
Nanette of Freda's Hive plans to use up all of her stash.(wow! That would be a lifetime goal for me).
Many of you want to whittle down the UFO piles.
I've read on some blogs where people inspired by Ali Edwards are selecting one little word to represent themselves for 2010. Calli of Make It Do chose the word "grow". Pat Sloan chose "possibilities".
I have family goals, personal goals I set every year (always to eat better, exercise more, lose weight), and goals related to my faith in God.
For my quilting goals this year will include:
  • Not buy extra fabric, and work on using my stash. (same goal for 2007, 2008, 2009, and I have a feeling will be on the goal list for next year, too!)
  • Make a lot of products with Texture Magic. I have never designed before, but this year I see so many possibilities with Texture Magic, I will step out of my box.

And my one little word: Progress. I've never liked standing still. Move forward, seek new opportunities, learn from them, and enjoy the journey!

Nedra...Happy New Year to you and your family!
I love your quote by Earl Nightgale. I am going to run that off and keep it where I can see it everyday.
I think my goal of 36 quilts is a little bit unrealistic...but one that is a possibilty.
I admire Nanette's goal! However, that would be an impossibility for me to even think that I might accomplish that in my life!
The goal of using your stash rather than buying more, is a great one that I would like to adopt.
Thanks for being my blogging buddy and making blogging so enjoyable in the year of 2009.

Happy New Year Nedra! You have some great goals to look forward to this upcoming year. I have a few of the same ones myself.

That's 3 quilts a month and if you only make 2 quilts in January then you'll have to make 4 quilts in February. I like to tease Rae Ann, she's my dear friend and I know how busy she is doing family history and serving others. Which is a very good thing. I think I'd be happy if I could make ONE quilt a month and then if I made 3 quilts I'd feel like I'm ahead of the game.

Nedra, I'm sending all of my best wishes for accomplishing all that you desire to accomplish this year and I'm glad you're going to try your hand at designing. You'll do great!!

Have a great NEW YEAR celebrating with your family.

I love the saying on your post, I really do believe that. I think for this year I will try to do more on the projects I started last year, so that means a bit more focus. Day one and I've already strayed by planning another. Happy creative, happy and healthy new year to you.

Happy New Year Nedra. I think my word would be Move! A bit like grow I suppose, just moving forwards, not stagnating or treading water, even if it's only a little bit of movement!!! xo

You are funny. NOT ALL my stash. But I am thinking about keeping track of how much I buy and use more this year. I am also going to finish a quilt for every new one I start. I am still thinking about my goals. I gotta first get a new washer and dryer though. So I want to think about which one to get. That is my first goal since I'm not going to be wearing clean clothes until that happens!
