2010 Goals

So last year I made a list of goals not really knowing how well I'd do on them, especially considering that I had only been blogging for less then a month at that point.  This year, I have a better idea of my quilting style now that I'm in the new house with a dedicated quilting room.  So without further adieu, here are my 2010 quilting goals

  1. Reduce the number of un-quilted, but finished quilt tops.  I currently have 9 tops that are complete and are just waiting to be quilted.  I hope to have this number reduced by 2011.  Now that I have my new machine with the fantastic BSR, I find machine quilting so much easier.  My old machine was absolutely terrible at machine quilting.
  2. Buy less fabric and use more fabric from my stash.  I admit it, I'm a fabric junkie.  Hopefully I'll do better this year then I did last year.
  3. Reduce the number of UFOs I have going on right now.  I have 9 quilts/projects that are already in the works (not including the 9 tops waiting to be quilted) and another 5 projects that I have picked a pattern and fabric but have not started them yet.  Again, I hope to reduce these numbers as well.  
  4. Maintain this blog.  I think I've figured out that I'm a 1-2 post a week person, and there's not much more I can do about that.  I don't sew every since I do work full time, which means I don't have things to update on a daily basis.  
That's it for me.   Hopefully I'll be able to meet those goals, especially because they aren't too specific.


  1. Sounds like you have some good goals there. It's good to write them down and even better to make this public commitment. Good luck!

  2. How inspiring. Good for you. I hope someday my list of goals looks exactly like that. Mine is almost the complete opposiste.
    I have about 20 PHD's not counting the 110 plus tops!

  3. Upon review of your goals I must revise my previous comment. I can copy your goals exactly if I just copy the first sentence of each point. You were right you weren't too specific
