It is always good to have a plan... a plan helps to keep one on track (well, usually!) Sometimes we make plans and God laughs...
Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl has an annual party encouraging quilters to look ahead and set goals. As she said... "I always start by reviewing my goals for the previous year." I've done that in my Year End Review... You can read the whole story by following the highlighted link. In short, I had five goals and I successfully followed through with three of them...
✔ Wrap up the Pieces from the Past sew along
✔ Host a second sew along - Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail
As I look to 2022... I see a blank slate. To be honest, there are many options and when I step back and look at them, I get a bit overwhelmed.
I keep considering hosting another sew along... yet I think I want to expand with the two that I completed this year. I am partnering with a quilt shop in Raton, NM to offer a block of the month event with the Pieces From the Past patterns. The owner also expressed interest in the Santa Fe Trail BOM when the Pieces from the Past is complete.
But I have so many unknowns... For those that have traveled to offer programs of this sort to quilting clubs and guilds, or for those that have booked/scheduled such programs...
Where do I start?
What things do I want to avoid? How are fees/cost calculated? And SO many more!
All advice, suggestions and tips are welcome! Ready... Go!
On a personal note... for the last several years I have had a focus word. The word that continues to come to me is SUCCESS. More specifically, from 1 Samuel 18:14... In everything he did he had great success, because the Lord was with him. I have had an internal argument that it seems prideful... or boastful... I, myself, cannot measure the greatness of success. Against what do I measure it? Previous years? Others?
In the end, I have accepted the word given to me and know that my success in whatever I endeavor will be ONLY because the Lord will be with me.
