Goals for Week of Jan 16th

Wow, the month is really moving along, and I can't seem to get a handle on realistic goal setting. I want the weekly goals to be somewhat ambitious, to push me to accomplish just a bit more than I otherwise might. On the other hand, I'm starting to tire of being so far off week after week. Of course, last week, I failed to take into account the 3 days worth of figure skating (U.S. Nationals) that would keep me in front of the TV. Or the daily half hour updates of the Dakar Rally. Unlike some programs I watch, skating and racing are not ones I can mostly listen to while hand quilting. Mmm. Don't think there's anything like that coming up this week.

Once again, the self-portrait was ignored, although I did think more about how I might do it. If you read the previous post, you know I ran into a bit of a snag on the workshop prep. I revised my lesson plans, but I did not get all the way through a trial run of the demo with the new technique. Something about Mondays, lately, though. I seem to be refreshed and revved up and determined to finish up what's leftover from the previous week if possible. That means that yesterday I completed what I needed to do to prep the workshop, so I can move on. Looks like the journal quilt gets top billing this week in my list of goals:

  1. Finish prep for workshop (including sew 1/2 of block) - completed Monday
  2. Self-portrait journal quilt - started today
  3. Make preliminary sketches for "Changing Perspectives" entry
  4. Complete quilting on side triangle - Lone Star - working on it!

Oh, by the way, I am pleased to report that I kept my resolution to get up one hour earlier each day - Oh, except for that one morning when I'd stayed up until after 2:00 a.m. - extra late even for me.

Oh cool! I'm doing the Changing Perspectives challenge, too. It's fun to think that I don't have to worry about being juried into it...that is a big creative block for me somtimes.
