2013 Quilting and Knitting Goals

I’ve blogged before about setting goals … Sometimes for a month, sometimes for the 2-3 weeks I have between trips but writing down my goals means I actually get things done! I know some people feel like goals are pressure they don’t need in their hobbies but a lot of others comment on how much more I get accomplished than they do … It’s the goal setting.

In spite of a very heavy travel schedule, the decluttering efforts, a fractured ankle, and Chesty’s surgery, I’m thrilled with the fact that everything on my list was accomplished even if one or two items were occasionally rolled over into the next month.
