I've been thinking about a lot of things this week.

1. I love my stash. Am I going to add to it this year? Yep. Am I going to use up a lot of it this year? Sure hope so. Am I going to spend time I could be sewing counting it and adding it up? Nope. Not gonna do it right now. It is what it is.

2. Beginning of 2008 I had about 60 UFO's. I'm down to less than 30. I'm good. Some of these were traded away, some were given away, heck, some were actually made into quilts. I have been looking at the UFO's that are left and I can say 1 thing...I'm tired of "samplers". More UFO's may be going away soon.

3. There are things I want to learn this year. I want to get better at binding. I want to learn to miter corners. I want to make tote bags. I want to learn to quilt on my machine. I want to get over my fear/loathing of applique. I used to say that about paper piecing so I know I can do it.

4. I am NOT going to set unattainable goals. My ONLY New Years resolution is to FINISH more than I start. That's it and I know I can do that.

5. I'm going to spend more time with my loved ones and friends, cultivating friendships and creating memories.

Here's to a great 2010 my friends!

Great goals! Love number one...that's why I picked Judy's stash report thing....we all start at zero! It's just what you bring in and use that counts! Not what we already have! Wooohoooo! Have a great week1

EXCELLENT list you have here!!! I"m not into setting a lot of goals, myself...because I know I don't usually attain them. *sigh*

I love your goals! Sometimes I think we put too much on our plates and feel so pressured to get things done that we forget to enjoy the process of doing them.

Great goals for the new year! I have set some goals for myself and like you, I want to make sure they're attainable, not intimidating. I have been off line for so long, I am happy to be back and have encouragement from on-line friends. I'll be visiting often, and I'll be here cheering you on. Here's to a great 2010!!
