Rather than "making resolutions," I usually "set intentions," which feels less restrictive and more fun. It's not just semantics when you think about how the two phrases feel.
Intentions for 2012
- Finish a quilt. OK, this has actually been on my list for at least three years now, but I really think 2012 will be the year! I'm much closer than I ever have been before.
- Keep on track with Sedona Star. I'll be starting it late, because I can't order the fabrics until I get paid next week, but my goal is to never get more than a month behind with the top. Quilting it will probably be on the list for 2013!
- Observe a weekly day of rest. I don't follow a traditional religion, but lately I have been seeing a lot of value in observing a regular Sabbath or day of rest. My plan is to switch off the computer, tv, sewing machine, etc., for a full 24 hours, and spend the time quietly with hand work and a decent chunk of meditation time. I have a habit now of not taking time out until I get sick, so my hope is that more time outs will result in less sick time.
