Creatively, my year did not exactly go as planned but I still managed to finish a few of the things I had hoped to do. I've noticed a number of bloggers have been choosing a 'word' to focus on in the new year (I'm sorry to say I don't know who to give credit to for the original idea). I hadn't planned on joining in, but one has popped into my head and I'm going to use it. My word is 'completion'. Thinking about completion leads me to two different interpretations - the first being the obvious - that of completing projects, including some UFO's that are waiting for attention. The other meaning, at least to me personally, is attempting to feel 'complete' in my art. I want to feel fulfilled and at peace with what I create - no more angst over whether it's 'good enough' or as innovative as what others are doing. When it gets right down to it, I just wanna be me!
I've been bleating about returning to my crazy quilting roots for the past couple of years and, needless to say, it hasn't happened. Obviously talking about it wasn't accomplishing my goal, so putting myself out there and signing up for a great online embroidery class and also a CQ round robin should help me get on track. Limiting time spend mindlessly surfing the internet will also help me accomplish my goal. Continuing to reduce my stash of reycled denim is a given, lest I drown in it.
No year-end post would be complete without thanking you, my friends and readers, for faithfully reading my mumblings - each and every one of you deserves a reward. The fact that I have over 90 followers is totally mind-numbing - thank you one and all. All I can say is that I really hope to come up with something that will continue to keep you visiting - please do say hi in the comments, because I love to hear from you!
And finally, my wishes for you in 2012...
and all the creativity you can stand!!
