2010 New Years Goals

I've done my review of projects that I would like to get done this year, some are currently in progress, while others are brand new. It will be interesting to see how this year unfolds in terms of which projects actually do get finished, which ones don't (for what ever reason) and what new projects will come my way.

I have only put actual months beside projects that I see getting done in the next 3 months. Then there are a couple of projects for the spring, and several projects that will be Christmas presents that I will need to start by the summer time if I am to get things done in time for the holidays. A few new projects have returned for last year so I will see if they actually will get done.

I have also signed up to do a BOM that is based on the block Drunkard's Path which involves curves. This will give me some good practice in that area and also shouldn't be as time absorbing as the Friday Block Party (FBP) was in 2009. The FBP was a great experience and I was able to hone my skills but towards the end I found it hard to keep up making blocks every week. Also I now have a whole pile of orphan blocks that I need to either find uses for or perhaps donate them to someone who would use them.

I also listed my UFOs that have no commitments at this time for completion since I figured I better keep a handle on them as well.

Jan: Baby quilt – animal party
Feb: Art & Cold Cash collaborate quilt project – finish quilting on the black red and turquoise version so it can then be given to Bernice for beading
March: finish my Cats & Dogs quilt for our small quilt group
Early Spring: Learn how to create paper piecing patterns from Hetty of Crafts and Stuff
Spring: finish Falling Splendor quilt
Spring: spend some time exploring some of the techniques from my thread painting workshop
Christmas present: Flower garden lap quilt in purples
Christmas present: Flower garden lap quilt in blues
Christmas present: stack coin quilt in stone fabrics
Christmas presents: Origami Stars and quilted birds (assorted)
Christmas charity quilt: using blocks from the Friday Block Party 2009
Any time: Bird of Paradise Harmonic Convergence wall hanging (for me to hang in my office)
Any time: One block wonder quilt ( I already have the fabric and am curious as to how this will turn out)
BOM: Drunkard’s Path Variations

UFOs that are outstanding
Hawaiian orchid pillow – hand quilting
2 wall hangings from Gloria Loughman’s workshop – colour is magic and layer by layer
Kaffe Fassett – colour in design diamond quilt

So there's my list and it is sure to keep me busy. It will be interesting to see what new things will come in to tempt me and change priorities along the way.

Wow! That's quite a list! I hope to get at least half of everything you have listed. Good luck. See you in March!

looks like a busy year! I'd encourage you to break the convergence quilt into steps and actually put the first step sometime in the next three months, then the second step sometime in the three months following, etc so it actually gets done and you have some of your own work to enjoy in your work space.... You deserve it. :-)
