Hello 2016!

This year I wasn't planning to look back, but somehow starting a new year makes me think about where I want to go and where I have been.

2015 was the year where I finally was able to attack my stack of old projects and complete them with the help of monthly and quarterly goals.

So, goodbye 2015.  I finished some projects for me.

I finished some projects for good causes.

And, I was quite surprised at the number of bags that I made and how much fun I had with them.

So, where to next in 2016?  2014 was the year to bust stash and scraps. 2015 was the year to focus on finishing old projects.  I think 2016 will be the year of no more excuses.  It's time to make the quilts that I want to make and use the "good" stuff that I have been saving for "someday".  

2016 Goals
  • Explore more improv.  I keep finding myself drawn to this technique and design.
  • Work and experiment more with color, especially use color combinations that are not my "go-to" colors.
  • Make myself some quilts and projects with my sacred, hoarded fabric. 
  • Continue making bags, especially more Sew Together bags.  These make great gifts!
  • Continue making charity quilts and focus on making more masculine quilts.
  • Its also time to tackle making some clothes.

My word this year is "productive". I want to make everything!
