2017 Goals

I’m working on finishing up December goals but also thinking ahead. While I’ll have specific monthly goals for my quilting and knitting, I have general goals for the year too. 

2017 goals

Quilt, knit, and walk more. Buy less fabric and yarn. 

Stephanie from my HeartStrings group is doing a no buy year but I know I won’t be successful with that so I’ll focus on buying less. Maybe I’ll manage some no buy months ?!
Also, Chris invited me to participate in a challenge with him – 2017 miles in 2017. He’ll run, I’ll walk and I’m sure that we’ll hit the goal together. Right now the only race I have planned is the 1/2 marathon the end of February so Keith and I will look for another race or two for the year to keep us motivated. Chris had a goal of one race per month last year and they ranged from 5k to half marathons and he overachieved – I think he ended up doing about 22 races. The 2017 miles don’t have to be done in races by the way – the races are just a way to motivate us for the training miles!

    With the exception of “knit more” these could be my goals. I really like the 2017 miles in 2017. I may have to consider this one for myself.

    2017 miles?? Yikes! Is that outdoor walking only, or can you use your bracelet to track your everyday miles.

    In prior years, I have “no buy,” but is also “no fun” So I moved to “buy only ‘b’s'” such as borders, backings, backgrounds and that worked ok (not great, but ok). Then…..I set up a fabric in vs fabric out spreadsheet, and with this system, I can buy whatever I want and however much I want as long as the “fabric used” exceeds the “fabric purchased.” Works really well for me, and if I am “behind,” I just take in a few more QOVs to quilt offering to provide the backing fabric (boo-yah–at least 4 yards of fabric used!) and I can catch up quickly.
