2018 goals in writing and sewing

My 2018 goals in writing and sewing are dynamic. I have some ideas that might change as I go through the year.

Here they are right now:

1. Blog – Write a post 3 or 4 times a month. I love keeping in touch with all of you! And I love posting about my sewing.

2. Book – Write 60,000 words. That took me 5 years in blogging but I am not dealing with pictures. Fingers crossed.

3. Henry’s quilt – Finish Henry’s super modern quilt.dsc05011 It is on the Gammill, I just need to quilt it and bind it.

4. Paper piecing – I will try it again and make at least one block.

5. BOM Blocks– I want to finally get these blocks made into some sort of quilt. This was a goal last year and again this year.

6. Envelopes – I have to give a demonstration on this to my guild. I volunteered so that I can force myself to make an envelope quilt.

7. 1930’s – A glimpse into the past? I will make at least one block reminiscent of the 1930’s.

dsc050168. Tula Pink – I will finally use that gorgeous Tula Pink fabric for something!

9. Serger – I want to keep finding ways to utilize my serger. I am paying one hundred dollars a month on it and I think that will motivate me to be creative with it.

10. Baby Clothes quilt – I have had these clothes of Henry and Zara for a while. dsc05015They’ve been living in a bag too long. I really want to get these done for my daughter and her husband.

11. Baby quilt – A special friend is due next year and I want to have this quilt done by the time the baby arrives. However, if she has twins, I just don’t know!

12. Luggage tags – our guild is exchanging them next December. I want to figure out how to make some fun ones for gifts.

13. Pillowcases – I wanted to make a bunch before Christmas this year, hoping I get to it before next Christmas. Some for gifts, some for family and some to donate and I will be happy. Plus, I am planning on using up some extra fabric this way.

dsc0501414. One Color – I want to do a table runner or small quilt just using blue, it’s my favorite color. This goal is currently in my mind quite a bit.

Plus, I want to be open to new ideas or possibilities. There is always one surprise quilt that I create, I wonder what it will be?

My goals make me Sew happy! How about yours?
