Goals of 2018

This should have been done earlier cos today is already 2018 (Singapore time) but better late than never.  I shall divide my goals for the new year into 2 main categories: Crafty goals and Personal goals.  The goals are listed below not by order of priority.

Crafty goals

  1.  To knit more.

In 2017, I picked up crochet and knitting again after a span of about 20 years.  I realise I enjoy knitting very much but my repertoire of knitting stitches is very limited.  I would like to learn to knit more in this new year and to knit a pair of socks and a sweater.

2.  To do more machine embroidery

I have a stock of machine embroidery designs that I had purchased in the past.  Many of these designs are wall hanging designs.  I aim to stitch at least 2 of these wall hanging designs out this year.

3.  To piece more quilt tops using my  stash of specialty rulers

First I have to restrain myself from purchasing more rulers and instead to use them to piece more quilt tops.

Personal goals

  1. To be more physically active in order to keep fit.  One of the reasons why I do not do much long arm quilting these past months is because my feet have been hurting.  I think if I keep myself more fit I will be more productive in my crafty pursuits.
  2. To cherish my husband more.  I heard a broadcast on Focus on the Family and the speaker talked about cherishing your spouse.  I did not do that very well in 2017.  After more than 20 years of marriage it is quite easy to take my husband for granted.  I must make effort to show appreciation for him and for the things he does for the family.
  3. To be more patient with my children.  Again I did not do this very well.  Juggling full time work with family and hobbies is not easy.  I need to prioritise.  Family must always come first.
  4. To read the Bible regularly if not everyday.  There is a saying, A Day Hem in Prayer Is Less Likely to Unravel.

I have listed my goals.  We will see how I fare come end of this year.
