It's 2014!!!

Hey all!

What are your plans for this wonderful, fresh new year of ours? 

My plans are to sew, sew, sew! 

Well, in between work, church, home, and family responsibilities. 

Honestly, lately I've been getting really down on myself about my progress as a sewing blogger. I follow so many amazing bloggers who accomplish so much. Many of them finish 3 or 4 amazing, original quilts in a month. 

I can't match their pace. Between working 36 to 72 hours a week in the hospital, church and scouting responsibilities every week, trying to keep my house livable, my husband fed, and keep my sanity...I just can't keep up. 

So, I'm trying to set specific and realistic goals for 2014: 

Honestly - I don't know if I can stick to #5. I like to watch Netflix while I sew. Does that count? Maybe it's time to pull out the radio instead. 

What are your 2014 goals? 


  1. Sounds good, Whitney!! You need to go easier on yourself, a whole bunch of those amazing bloggers are paid to quilt and that is their day job. You have other responsibilities and you know what, that's ok :) Love seeing your list and I know you can do this!! IT really has been fun watching you grow in your quilting skills this past year.

    1. Thanks Meesh! Thanks Meesh! I aspire someday to be as amazing a quilter and person as you. Hope Phoenix is treating you well! I may need to come visit to get out of the cold someday. I'm getting sick of the snow already. ;)

  2. I don't know anyone who finishes 3-4 amazing quilts a month. :) A lot of us don't work outside the home either!

    Can't wait to see what you do in 2014.


Thanks for leaving a comment, you're the best!
