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 is a good idea. I am ready to see where I am and whether progress has been made or not.
I have always been a good student and I think goal setting allows me to grade myself and keep me motivated. Now, for 2023 you can see the original post and goals here, as well as the first quarter review 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, and I have 3 projects to be quilted and bound so its promising that I can get ahead significantly in quarter 3
✔Participate in 6 blog hops or QALs/SALs: Goal met for the year!
I have done 4 hops and 4 QALs/SALs! I am feeling like I may be done for awhile, but there is the Seaglass Joy …
☐ Publish 3 patterns:
Again, no progress. I just haven’t been creating my own work; I am thinking of doing a few patterns for a course or two I may offer. This may just have to wait for my muse to catch up to me.
☐ New website theme:
This was a total bust. I had to move my site back to where it was, and now am out of space for a test blog. I will have to look into it, but I haven’t.
✔Conquer some of the Projects In Waiting: (8/12)
I am pleased to report that 8 were completed, 4 remain. This looks to be right on target.

I have been working hard at increasing my activity level. It doesn’t come naturally to me and walking was always easy, but after the ankle, it is less so. The past 100 days I have done well, so I am adding a goal to continue that and do some more physical therapy to get it in top shape.
✔Move intentionally every day
