‘Tis the season for reflecting on what passed in 2017, and plans for 2018. Shall we take a look at the numbers? I like numbers. 😀
10 blog posts (including this one)
8 quilts finished
5 of those quilts for charity, 3 for presents
3 quilt tops completed for me
2 quilts fully quilted, but awaiting binding (1 to keep, 1 to give)
2 quilts almost done quilting (1 to keep, 1 for charity)
1 new-to-me longarm quilting machine acquired.
When I started gathering these numbers I was a little “woe is me” — I didn’t finish a lot. Or so I thought. I very often think of a finish as the final quilt, fresh from the dryer. But there are so many little steps to rejoice and celebrate along the way. All the steps take time.
I accomplished quite a bit this year, even if none of it resulted in a new quilt to keep me warm. 8 more quilts out into the world providing some comfort and warmth. 7 that much closer to being finished.
For 2018, I want to keep my goal simple: Enjoy more. Don’t get so wrapped up in deadlines and comparisons. Just enjoy the right now.
