2016 Goals

As I begin to recover from my recent surgery and moving house, I am beginning to envision a 2016 that will be awesome! 2015 was a year I would rather not repeat due to ill health but next year holds real promise.

So this week I worked on a list of goals for 2016 and created a page on my blog devoted to the goals so I can monitor my progress easily. Click on the 2016 Goals tab above to check it out.
This is the mind map I created to print and hang in my space as a visual reminder:



This was my 2015 list:

  • enjoy my 2015 BOM in progress - ACHIEVED!
  • spend 1 day a week in the sewing room - LOL NOT ACHIEVED
  • continue to sew for the Green Bag Lady Project - NOT ACHIEVED HARDLY DID ANY AT ALL :(
  • In August I will finish my year as quilt club vice president - ACHIEVED!
  • Use my portable vintage sewing machines more often - ACHIEVED USED AT RETREATS EACH TIME!
  • cowboy quilt - NOT DONE
  • VW quilt - NOT DONE
  • VW mini quilt - JUST THE BINDING TO GO
  • Tula Pink lap quilt - NOT QUILTED
  • seasonal dog jackets - NOT DONE
  • eye spy quilts x 2 - NOT DONE
  • quilt 7 scrap quilts - DONE!

  • Sew all my vintage fabrics into aprons, bags etc for sale in my antique mall booth - PARTIALLY DONE
  • Make at least 6 charity quilts - DONE
  • Try not to buy much fabric except what is needed to finish WIPs and UFOs - OOPS 
  • Paint vintage sewing machine table and mount one of my 400 models in it - NOT DONE
  • Use scraps from overflowing scrap bins - SOMEWHAT DONE, LONG WAY TO GO
  • sew shopping bags from unwanted fabrics in my stash - DONE
  • sew several small mini quilts to decorate my antique mall booth - NOT DONE
Okay so only 3 of my 25 goals for 2015 were achieved, I did have ill health as an excuse. That hopefully will not apply in 2016 so we'll see how I go this coming year!
