List through the Guild Show

Well, I’ve had this blogspot account reserved for quite some time, as it matches my LiveJournal account. I rather like my user name, so I’m fussy about keeping it. Kinda like Bonnie Hunter and Quiltville. My goal of this blog is to journal my quilting (my LiveJournal account handles everything else, and in that one, I swear like a sailor, so be warned if you go over there!). I love to quilt and have been at it for 20 years, making my first quilt at age 16.

To get this blog going, I’m going to list my goals between now and the end of the year. I decided to start journaling my quilting by week a few months ago. The week starts when my work week ends. If I’m done at noon on Friday, well then, that’s when the week starts. The week ends when I arrive at work on that last day of my work week. Typically the week ends on Friday morning and then the new one starts on Friday afternoon.

My list below contains all things that I want to finish by my guild’s show in early March. Fat chance, I know, but if I do not dream, I will never get anywhere. This does keep me on some level of task to get things done. I want to hang 3 quilts in the show and they are all on this list. If they are the only 3 things I get done, well, then it’s a success.

So without further adieu, the full list of everything I wrote down, just free form. I will put down some goals between now and year end and see where we are by then. Yes, it’s a lot of projects, but what can I say?
