2014 Goals

End of year update:
Well on inspection, I must admit I didn't make much progress on Goals 2014. Here is what I did accomplish:
I painted one of the kids rooms, went to Houston and worked at the International Quilt Festival in the education department, plus took two classes, got a new puppy, got my oldest son moved into his own place, and joined a new gym.  (I actually gained weight last year, opposite of my goal). I started some new quilt projects and finished them (24 mini paper pieced Christmas ornaments along with piecing the top for the tree and made a Challenge quilt for the guild challenge.) Still pending quilting are the ones listed below. Kevin took a new job, so I got the house decluttered and ready to sell (of course nobody has come to see it), and my quilting business is going really well. If we weren't moving I would be looking at getting a second machine and expanding my space.

Update: Aug 2014:  Feeling not so good about this list. I have accomplished exactly one small thing. Boo.
