2010 New Years Goals - Final Review

Another year is coming to an end. So it's time to take a look at what I had set out as my goals for this year, what was I able to accomplish, what didn't happen and what else came along. First is a list of my original goals and what happened with each one.

Jan: Baby quilt – animal party – completed
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 – completed
Mar: Finish my Cats & Dogs quilt for our small quilt group – completed
Early Spring: Learn how to create paper piecing patterns from Hetty of Crafts and Stuff – completed
Spring: Finish Falling Splendor quilt – moved to 2011
Spring: Spend some time exploring some of the techniques from my thread painting workshop – moved to 2011
Christmas present: Flower garden lap quilt in purples – cancelled this project
Christmas present: Flower garden lap quilt in blues – cancelled this project
Christmas present: stack coin quilt in stone fabrics – cancelled this project
Christmas presents: Origami Stars and quilted birds (assorted) – cancelled this project
Christmas charity quilt: using blocks from the Friday Block Party 2009 – moved to 2011
Any time: Bird of Paradise Harmonic Convergence wall hanging (for me to hang in my office) – completed
Any time: One block wonder quilt ( I already have the fabric and am curious as to how this will turn out) – never started
BOM: Drunkard’s Path Variations – only 4 months completed

UFOs that are outstanding – all are still 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 from this list I completed 5 projects, 1 is partially finished, 4 I decided not to go forward with, 3 I have moved to next year to be done and 1 just never got off the ground, but hopefully sometime in the future may get done.
In addition the following new projects happened in 2010:

May: second Bird of Paradise Harmonic Convergence wall hanging for our friends Joe & Kent in Kauai Hawaii to give to then as a thank you when we went to visit them on vacation last spring – completed
Jun: Hawaiian Sunshine - 9 patch lap quilt using Hawaiian fabrics done while on vacation in Hawaii – completed
Jun: Tranquil Moments - quilt top and back done while on vacation in Hawaii, quilting left to do
Sep: Batik Gems quilt for Jean's 75th birthday – completed
Sep: Attended Ricky Tims Super Quilt Seminar in Cape Cod MA
Dec: Cherish Nature quilt for Lyn's 75th birthday – completed

So in addition to the 5 completed projects from the original list I did another 4 projects in 2010. So over I have to say another successful year. So next I'm going to review what my goals are going to be for 2011 and then will post them hopefully on New Year's Day.
I wish everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year,

Happy New Year to you too. I should make a list like that so I can figure out what I am going to work on next year.

It's interesting to see so much progress and how it's changed.
