Yvonne, also known as Quilting Jetgirl, posted a few days ago a review of her 2023 goals. She challenged us to take a look, and I think that was a good idea. I am ready to see where I am and whether progress has been made or not.
You can see the original post and goals here. It wasn’t an extensive list, but I am pretty pleased with my progress as I look at it.
Use up my stash and keep a stash in and out count:
- I am keeping a list of this, and right now am definitely using the stash!
- I am down over 6 yards!
Participate in 6 blog hops or QALs/SALs:
I participated in 3 blog hops already! You can see the logos up here.
Publish 3 patterns:
No progress. I just haven’t been creating my own work, need to push myself to do a little more here. I think some of it is due to the pile-up of projects from breaking my ankle last year!
New website theme:
I am looking at a few and testing one out. I also need to move my website and my mailing list has required some work. Fortunately, users should not notice the move, if all goes well. I think there will be more progress on this in Quarter 2.
Conquer some of the Projects In Waiting:
I am pleased to report that 4 were completed, 12 remain. This looks to be right on target.
- Villa Rosa/ Orphan Quilter/Tricia Maloney Hop
- Blue Blog Hop
- Stay At Home Round Robbin
- Winter Block quilt ( a blog post on this will post Thursday).
Coming Up on My Blog
This week I am hosting TGIFF, somewhere last week I checked my calendar and realized I was a week ahead of myself. I will begin the behind the scenes work on my Fab Farm Sew Along and continue to sew on the Diatom Block of the month. I also will have a project or two to prep for an upcoming retreat. I started cutting some of it Saturday, realized I need a different background than the one I planned, so there is some fabric sourcing to be done, too.
