My Quilty Life for 2016

This really is more like one of my month in review posts, but it really is the best way for me to track where I am and where I want to go. This also includes a lot of projects I’ve had in my head or I’ve bought fabric for. You’ll notice I have very lofty dreams, but that’s okay.

So there you have it. My list for 2016. It is a lot, but I love lists and they inspire me. I have no doubt other projects will be added to the list (customer, gifts, inspiration etc.) that I haven’t considered but that is okay, this is my list of want to do and I have a really strong starting point.

What about you? Do you have a list? What inspires you?

Starting fresh in a new year, on the journey. Jackie
