Goals for 2019
I love the beginning of the year, sitting down with a hot cup of tea and my quilting notebooks, to plan lots of projects. This year I am happy to participate in Quilting JetGirl’s 2019 Planning Party.
My Word for 2019 is “Fresh.” I picked it to remind me to work more quickly and intuitively, especially in thread sketching and free motion quilting.
An acronym to guide my progress:
Finish large projects (see the five below). Finish watching the Craftsy classes I have purchased. Finish up a large tub of non-quilting cottons.
Re-purpose old tablecloths by dyeing and painting them.
Experiment with threads of different fibers, sizes, and weights, in practice pieces.
Sort through supplies and streamline my studio.
- at least one baby quilt
- oven mitts
- microwave bowls
- plaid table runner
- four small art quilts for The Endeavourers group
I am looking forward to a busy year, and to hearing your plans for the year as well. If you need ideas, click on the button above to see other plans, goals and resolutions from Quilting JetGirl!
What a great word and acronym to remind you of your goals for the year! I hope you have a wonderful 2019 and thank you so much for sharing and linking up with the Planning Party.
Thank you so much for hosting the Planning Party and for visiting!
Sounds pretty ambitious!
At this point, it’s only a few bytes of information in the computer — and it’s easy to dream that I will accomplish all these things! 🙂
I love your acronym. I have my list made on what I want to finish and then broke it down to a weekly list. I will have to check out the Planning Party.
I did a break down by month — I hope you can stick with your weekly list! Wouldn’t it be great to get so much accomplished, even one year? 🙂
This is day 1 and all went well
I have NO plans and therfore will not be disappointed in myself……..bad susan! Plenty of things will pop up………
Consider me officially tickled. You are always so funny!
It’s great to have a bright, shiny new year to reset one’s ambitions. For me, your hand quilting project would be the hardest to achieve. The two machine quilting ones are doable, and I hope you get them done as I think they’ll be great. I look forward to seeing what you do with the repair project.
I agree with you on the wonders of a reset! I am looking forward to your posts this year and where you go with your art quilts!
Goodness, a list to start the year! Good for you. I know I need to make a baby quilt this year (soon!) and it would be good to finish the one I have in progress on the quilting frame. Other than that, honestly, I don’t think I have specific finishes in mind. That’s both good and bad.
My hopes are, that if I work hard this year to finish up a bunch of projects, next year will be free and open for new ideas. 🙂
Ah, I imagine you are always open to new ideas. 🙂
Well, aren’t you just the eager one, with a big list already made! Your goals, though, are really exciting–those projects are so different but would be satisfying to the max. I especially love that vintage quilt top!
Congratulations! I have included your blog/s in INTERESTING BLOGS in FRIDAY FOSSICKING at
(You might like to check Always Interesting… to see if you are included there)
You put me to shame.. at this stage, I’m doing well planning from week to week…
The planning part is easy, it’s the actual accomplishing of anything that eludes me! 🙂
You achieve far more than most of us…
I’m looking forward to following your busy year 🙂 I love the way you’ve chosen a word and made it into an acronym list. I would love to make a list and follow through with it all but I always seem to fall by the wayside. Your planning is certainly an inspiration and it reminds me of that amazing lady with her needlepoint and how she catalogued all her time…
Thanks, I love making words into acronyms, and I am also trying to come up with more specific goals with numbers and deadlines. For me, the more ways I look at my goals, the more likely I am to achieve at least some of them! 🙂
