I've already posted a list of my 2011 Quilty Goals, but that list was very project-focussed.
This is my more general list of goals for the coming year.
- Use more solids in my projects. I've definitely started to, but there's so much more I want to do here. My Poseidon Kona FQ bundle should help with that. My head is swimming with ideas for that stack of lovelies (see what I did there? I'm so punny);
- Flex my creative muscles and design at least one new pattern of my own for publication (even if it's just a tutorial on the blog);
- Donate a minimum of 2 quilts to Quilt Hope In. I already know what I'll be donating first: I had collected a bunch of the Traffic Jam line of fabrics by Windham, intending to use it to make a second quilt for my nephew Benjamin this year. It breaks my heart to say that Ben passed away unexpectedly in November 2010 at age 3½, and so I will make the quilt as planned, and donate it in his name to QHI;
- Delve even further into the online quilting community - hopefully by winning a spot in the Doll Quilt Swap 10 lottery - and expand my quilting horizons at the same time. Like, seriously - have you SEEN some of the stuff that's come out of that swap?! But hey, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take, right? (Leave it to a Canadian to connect Wayne Gretzky, whose quote that is, and quilting, eh?);
- Have fun.
Stay tuned for my Blogiversary giveaway, which might be a bit delayed - I'm waiting for my giveaway goodies to arrive!! Oh, and I'm working on my blog design, so be sure to check in here and there if you're reading this via a reader.
Happy New Year!!
