Happy New Year!

These past few years I’ve made some resolutions to move out some pieces. Since I started doing this, I’ve been paying more attention to how I work, and, as a result, I’ve noticed that I am not good about focusing. I’m even worse when I don’t get to do a new project every now and then. So this year, I am going to make smaller goals. Instead of trying to finish a UFO every month as I set out to do last year, I am going to try to finish one every other month. I am also going to give myself six new starts, which I can start all at once or over time. I’m also planning out my obligation pieces, of which I will allow six. Most of these projects are medium to large, so I will also allow myself some travel projects, but I won’t put them in the rotation here. Finally, I will work diligently on the marquoir.

6 UFOs
  1. Anna’s Bird
  2. Elizabethan Rose
  3. Frickin’ Chicken aka Majestic Rooster
  4. Alpine Garden
  5. Tree of Life Window
  6. Watercolor Geraniums

6 new starts

  1. Curtis Boehringer, apple sampler
  2. Cross Eyed Cricket, Promise of Summers to Come

  5. Bent Creek, Christmas Carols
  6. Bent Creek, Snowman Stocking

6 obligation pieces

Looks like a great plan! I also get cranky if I don't get to start something new every once in a while.
