My 2009 Goals!

I'm so excited about this!  Resolutions never seem to work.  They're usually vague, such as "Lose Weight."  But I'm trying to be very specific with each goal, and I'm going to make each one doable.  I can wait to start marking them off.  And of course, I'll keep you posted on my progress.  Here we go....

1.  Make a January stash quilt.
2.  Make a February stash quilt.
3.  Make a March stash quilt.
4.  Lose 5 pounds.
5.  Send my felting book proposal to a publisher.
6.  Make an April stash quilt.
7.  Make a May stash quilt.
8.  Make a June stash quilt.
9.  Lose 5 pounds
10.  Enter a quilt in a major show.
11.  Send a proposal to a magazine for an article.
12.  Lose 5 pounds.
13.  Make a July stash quilt.
14.  Make an August stash quilt.
15.  Enter a quilt in a major show.
16.  Send a proposal to a magazine for an article.
17.  Make a September stash quilt.
18.  Make an October stash quilt.
19.  Lose 5 pounds.
20.  Enter a quilt in a major show.
21.  Make a November stash quilt.
22.  Make a December stash quilt.
23.  Open an Etsy shop.

See a theme here?  I realized that if I wrote, "Make a stash quilt every month," I wouldn't get to mark it off my list until the end of the year.  This way even small accomplishments can be recognized and marked off.  I love marking things off a list.

In summary, I have 12 stash quilts to make, 20 pounds to lose, 3 quilts entered in shows, 2 magazine articles, 1 book proposal, 1 Etsy shop, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Those sound like perfectly reasonable goals to me.
And if you accomplish even half of them you'll do well.
