My husband recently got orders to relocate.  We just found out that we will be moving to upstate NY to finish his training.  Although it is going to be a huge change and EXTREMELY different from what I am used to (I was raised in the south and went to highschool and college in FL) I have decided I am very excited for the change and adventure.  The first thing I did went my husband told me the news was jump on the computer and look up quilt shops in the area.  I was ecstatic when I found out there were so many shop nearby since here in Charleston there really aren't any quilt shops.  With this big change I have decided to add some changes to my quilting life to make it more productive.  We will only be in NY for about 8 months so I feel like that is the perfect time period to set some short term goals.  My goals are roughly as follows:

  1. Take at least one quilting class a month.  Each class should be based on a new task I should be learning or perfecting.
  2. Finish my Gran's quilt by Christmas.
  3. Participate in a Quilting Bee.
  4. Participate in a Siggy Quilt swap.
  5. Make at least ONE Brown Bag quilt from the Stash Manicure Brown Bag Quilt Contest.
  6. Make a "Baby Jane" Quilt top.  Do a certain amount of squares per week until I get the whole Quilt top done.
