Goals for 2006
In the year to come, these are some things I want to work on.
I am going to spend more time drawing, and perhaps more time painting as well. I have done both of these things off and on for years, but lately its been more off than on. I have a new, smaller sketch book that will fit easily into my bag. If I take it to work, I can spend my lunch hour drawing. I started off today spending an hour alone with my sketchbook. I have joined "Everyday Matters", so that will help with the drawing goals. I probably won't share all of the drawings, but I will share some of them.
I am going to work up to an hour a day of healthy exercise. Now I do the minimum of 30 minutes 3 or 4 times a week, but I know I can't get the weight off again unless I up the ante.
I make both traditional and art quilts, and I enjoy the whole process. I would like to complete some of my unfinished projects and get rid of the ones I really have lost interest in. While I'm not swearing off all fabric purchases, I want to be more disciplined about using what I have.
I spent two days this past week reorganizing my fabric and my work space. I also spent quite a bit of time on a new project. (I love my new machine! ) I have joined the journal quilt group, so I know I will COMPLETE at least one journal quilt a month.
This has been a wonderful year of spiritual growth, and I am grateful for it. I want to continue down this path and be ever mindful of what is really important.
It has been a great year for spending time with friends. I want to continue to make that a priority, and I want to make sure I let people know how much I appreciate them, and how happy I am that they are in my life.
On that note, fellow artists and quilters, you are important to me and I really appreciate you all. Happy New Year!
