2009 Crafting Resolutions

Most of us make new year's resolutions about our personal and professional lives--so how about setting some goals for our craft lives, too? Here are mine...

1. Continue to experiment with this blog and gain readers so we get a dialogue going!
Step 1: I'm reading the Huffington Post's new guide to blogging.

2. Make one art quilt a month.
This is a holdover from years' past. I know it will make me feel good to not only devote the time to new small projects, but to produce 12 quilts, so I gotta do it.

3. Do at least 3 of the exercises in each of the books I've bought over the past year (and not just look at them).
This goal dovetails nicely with goal 2, since I can use the exercises and all the techniques I've been learning over the past few years in the art quilts. There are some great self-portrait exercises I'd like to try, and there are always Zoey (dog) quilts to be made! 

4. Contact an art collective about the possibility of selling some of my quilts.
I've sold quilts before and have a few originals I could sell now.

So, what are your goals???
