New Year's Resolutions

I have some quilter's New Year's Resolutions:

Spend time every day in the creative process, at least 15 minutes.
Do 10 pieces this year in my nature series.
Have discipline!
Try a new technique.

Some others that I'm not bold enough to make public at this time.

Do you have resolutions? Quilting or otherwise?

I also have the usual nonquilting resolutions--exercise more, weigh less! Which sort of go hand-in-hand, you know.

And most importantly, be kind to others!

I've include pictures of some of my 2006 Journal Quilts, recently returned from their travels. One, the most realistic wave above, is still travelling with the Creative Journey book.

Thanks for posting your new years resolutions. I like to call them goals because resolutions are always the same. One of mine is to get decluttered and become more organized.

This year I started doing instead of talking about it. I really started getting rid of junk I did not need.

I also set up my long arm sewing machine. I had to get rid of a nice couch to make room for it. It is taking up the entire room. OMG, I had not clue what I was getting myself into. I have definately outgrown my space. I need a new house for 2008.

I love your journal quilts from 2006. Keep up the good work and inspiring people like me.

Cherlyn--

Thanks for your comment. Yes, "Goals" sounds more attainable somehow. Sounds like you are making good progress on your goals! Your decluttering will inspire me!
