Thanks go out to Carla for coming up with this ever so interesting Hop to wrap up 2020 and kick off 2021 in such a positive manner.
A couple of years ago I used my blog to post my New Years resolution. It was to use my embroidery machine each month of the year by including an embroidered item in each hop I participated in. It was successful. Being held accountable worked wonders for me.
When I first started my blog it was primarily for me to keep track of what it was I was crafting and why. From the beginning, what I made was wonderful quilting friends from around the world. I have spent most of my blogging time learning new skills and concepts from all of you generous people, truly a win win.
Resolution #1 is to go back to blogging on a more regular basis not just for hops. While I am posting what I have accomplished for the hops I am not keeping track of the other stuff I have accomplished or hope to accomplish. So I plan on having at least 1 non hop related post per month.
Resolution #2 should help with resolution #1. I want to finish at least one of the items I have sitting in the to be finished pile per month. Not limited to 1 per month but at least one per month. some are small and just need me to sit down and DO IT. The group above are the starts not finished from just this year. There are 14 projects lying there.
Next up are the pre 2020 UFO's that I still would like to see finished. The first picture below are the more recent UFO's. Maybe 2 years oldish. Placemats and mug rugs.
Last but not least Resolution #3 is that I want to work on staying focused on a project without a deadline or it becoming another UFO. It amazes me how focused I can be if I have to be, as in a date for a blog hop post, otherwise I just bounce from idea to idea. This is the reason I have the need for resolutions #1 and #2.
So here they all are nicely collected in one place where I can just reach in and pull something out when I need something to do. At the moment there are 19 projects. I'm aiming for 12 completions but will be thrilled with at least 6. I'll keep you posted in upcoming blog posts 😉😉😉
I am looking forward to reading everyone's resolutions and being on the lookout for different perspectives on what each of us wants and or needs to get done going into the New Year.
Here is a complete list of all of us who are sharing our goals today. Go visit, leave a note and Last but definitely not least I am wishing all of you a Very Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year.
