1. Use More/Buy Less - I was doing really good with this one until the last month or so. I don't think I purchased any fabric before May of this year. I did win a couple of giveaways, but no purchases. Then I fell off the wagon hard. In May I bought fabric for a quilt for Mecca and then in July Sharla and I have bought lots of fabric with money we saved in the Piggy Bank challenge and then we found a stash we made doing a garage sale 2 years ago and we bought more fabric with it. But we've tightened our belts again, and hope not to purchase anything else unless it is used to complete a quilt.
2. Quilt for Others - I'm quite happy with my progress on this one. I've bought fabric to do a quilt for Mecca and Tom, it will be my first king sized quilt. I also had everyone in my two bees this year make blocks for a quilt for Cole. So that is two quilts for others that are in the works. I also have Callie's and Beau's wedding quilt working as well. So I'm making progress, slow but progress. I have Mecca's quilt laid out in EQ7 because I wanted a guide to look at as I pieced. It is the Courtyard Tiles pattern I bought in May and the fabric is Bread n Butter by American Jane.
4. Stop Comparing Myself to Others - I'm doing better with this one. I still have moments where I get down because I've not gotten as much done as someone else, but they are fewer and farther between. Instead of being down because I've not gotten as much accomplished as I might want, I'm excited to see what others have done. And if I am having a down day, then I just don't read the blogs, that way I don't get further down. Have I stopped completely, no, but I'm better and that is good enough.
5. Keep Moving Forward - This one is hard to quantify, but I am saying I'm doing it. Earlier this year I had (and to some extent still do) some pretty terrible knee pain. I ended up getting not 1 but 2 injections in each knee. But I didn't let it totally sideline me. I may not have gotten as much done, but I have gotten some things done, so that is progress. I maybe moving forward at a snails pace, but for me movement is movement.
Over all it I've been doing ok this year, but as always I want to do better. With everything that has happened this year, there are days when I don't even want to get out of bed, but I do. So I'm going to continue working on my list and hopefully at the end of the year I will have even more progress to show. I will be linking up at Quilting Jetgirl today.
