Goals for 2017

Are you looking forward to the new year coming up?   I know I am -- I'm looking forward to some great times with quilting friends, finishing UFOs and quilting some customer quilts, to name just a few.  

Here's what I've been cogitating over the last few weeks -- my goal list for the whole year of 2017. 

Make 6 seasonal wall hangings for the house

Finish 4 UFOS (consider more?)

Finish one knitting UFO

Add at least one more day of blogging each week

Try designing at least one quilt rather than using a published pattern

Use my Go cutter more

Quilt a few of the quilts that just need quilting

Participate for the full year of Rainbow Scrap Challenge

Start long arm quilting for local customers 

When I worked in education goals were suppose to be measurable.  I'm not worrying about that part too much although several of these goals are definitely measurable.   

I'm going to print these goals up and post them on the bulletin board in the studio.  It really helps to keep goals whether yearly, weekly or daily somewhere easily visible to make sure I don't go off on tangents.  

The picture above is the center of my friend Nancy's quilt that she started at our in home retreat this spring.  I need to ask her if she's finished it yet! 

I'm linking up with Quilting Jetgirl's 2017 Planning Linky Party.  Wow! A lot of folks have linked up already.  I'm just making the deadline myself! I'm also linking to Can I Get a Whoop Whoop.

That's it for 2016.  Here's to moving on to 2017 with lots of new experiences and fun times. 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie
