A Final Look - 2010 Crafting Goals

Last year, I came up with a list of goals for 2010. I posted recaps on all the goals in May, but I haven't posted about them since then.

While I may have gone overboard with things to put on the list, but I am sure that I wouldn't have done a few things without keeping the Goals in mind throughout the year.
  1. Show at least 100 yds Net Fabric used in the Stash Reports. I am ending the year at less than -100 yards so I am happy about that! I finished 2009 at -178 yards so I think that this year was a step in the right direction. :)
  2. Finish a 'big' project before starting a new 'big' project. I think that I have done pretty well on this front. I don't have a lot of new projects from this year that added to last year's UFO list.
  3. Organize Stash Room. This was done in January, but so much new fabric was acquired with little old space made so there are some stacks of fabric around the room. Definitely needs to be remedied!
  4. Use scraps and crumbs. I have used scraps for various little projects, but not nearly enough of either scraps or crumbs to make any kid of a difference.
  5. Make a project using applique. I haven't finished an applique project, but I have made great progress on the Which Witch wall hangings. I'm definitely feeling more comfortable with the entire process.
  6. Use 10 new patterns. Accomplished!! 1 - Regina's Quilt; 2 - sock knitting bag; 3 - Reversible table runner, 4 - Stars and Pinwheels (SIS quilt); 5 - Bento Box; 6 - Optical Illusion; 7 - Spin City; 8 - Lucky Charm Table Runner; 9 - Margo Lazy Girl bag; and 10 - Block of the Month - teal and brown
  7. Make 12 charity quilts. Almost accomplished. Got pretty darn close! 9 have been quilted and bound as of 10/20/10
  8. Don't buy any new books or patterns. I went most of the year without buying any new quilting books or patterns, but I did get several knitting books. I think that I only bought 1 or 2 quilting books myself. the rest were gifts. :)
  9. Complete Granny Square afghan. The blocks are done. I think that I even went so far as to look up how to attach the blocks to each other. But I am going to have to look those up again.
  10. Knit 1 pair of socks. DONE - 3/28/10
  11. Knit 12 baby caps. 4 DONE by 6/12/10. Four is better than none, right?
  12. Finish bear cross stitch. I attempted this. Although, it wasn't much of an attempt - I only spent 1 evening actually stitching on it! lol
  13. Get rid of stamping stuff. A lot was sold, but there is still more. I have plans to start listing the crap stuff on CraigsList this weekend.
  14. Get to 1,000 posts on blog for Awesome Giveaway!- Done!!! WOO HOO!!
It looks like there will be a few goals that get carried forward into 2011. I will have to think on the goals for the new year for a while though.

Happy New Year!
