Basically, my goals for 2022 are to not make any goals, at least not any sewing or quilting goals. I tried to sew a toy mouse yesterday and I got it done, but it looked like the cat had already been chewing on it by the time I finished. If I can find a giant, lighted magnifier that fits over my sewing machine, I might make some sewing goals.
I almost hate to list my 2021 goals to see how I did, but here they are:
1. Send out at least six flimsies for quilting. I sent out three quilts and since I had to quit sewing in July, that's about right.
2. Redesign quilt patterns for blocks into QAYG. I did this with two quilts, and while I like a traditionally pieced quilt better than a QAYG, it worked pretty well.
3. Have a monthly stay-at-home quilting weekend. Total fail.
4. Find that darn iron! I finally found it when I was unpacking some boxes in December. I must have repacked it when we were doing some flooring.
5. Find a way to set up my sewing table so I can see without hunching over. Another fail
6. Do something every day to keep projects moving. I'm going to consider this one done because I did it through July when my sight got too bad to continue.
7. Blog here at least once a week, even if it is just a silly picture. Note to self, start collecting some silly pictures. After my August surgery, my near vision was so much worse than before that looking at print was difficult. I could have posted a picture, but I didn't see the point if I couldn't see the words. So, Fail.
My vision is still bad, but if I enlarge the screen, I can manage for short periods. I still have one or two surgeries coming up this year and after those in 2020 and 2021, I think my goal setting should be put on hold. I'll enjoy seeing you meet your goals instead.
And here's your picture.
