Assessing the List
In the spirit of Good News, Bad News, I'll start the the YES category:
More improv: Especially if you count UFO's from workshops!
|from Jacuque Gering's Improv Workshop|
|from Claire Witherspoon's Scrap Strategies Workshop|
Both of the Michael Miller quilts and Goats Askew I would consider improv - their design developed in a very organic way.
The "second front" of these two were improv as well.
Use of Solids: Not necessarily exclusive use and less than many modern quilters, but for me it's a big bump. The last one is a collaborative quilt that I helped with and did the FMQ on.
My stash of solids grew if that counts!

Garments: a (super cute) Costume and modified onesie are all she wrote.
one button, check.
Real Photo Shoot:
"A" for effort, I tried. The wind, the tourists walking by, the size of the quilt vs the height of the holder... this goal is definitely a work in progress and one I hope to improve on.
|2014 FAL Q4 GOAL complete (linking up)|
Three Tardy Birthday Quilts: the first of three.
Just this week I nailed down the design direction for one of the other Birthday quilts - some variation of delectable mountain - so that's progress.

Two of Two Wedding Quilts: THIS goal is HUGE! Both were gifted and are loved.
After joining the IGmini Swap I changed my IG profile from private to public and my followers and following are almost the same number, even if they aren't the same people! I'm calling 554 posts "active" and although it may be less regularly, I still blog and check in with flickr and thanks to QDAD, I'm on Facebook daily.
Link Ups: All things considered, I' patting myself on the back about Finish It Up Friday, WIP Wednesday, ALYOF and 2014 FAL. Even though Q4 had seven items and I finished two (Redwood Grove and IGmini shown above), Q3 was three for three, Q2 was a bust and Q1 was one out of four, I'm still calling it a win because there were no double digit goals set and stuff got done!
That Leaves the Bad News. The NOPE, not even close category:
Less iPhone game time
Ergonomic sewing (slightly improved in habit, but my sewing space is unchanged)
Here's What's Up for 2015
- QDAD a Reality
- Continue Linky Parties (I repeat, because they're fun)
- The remaining two Belated Birthday Quilts
- One new Wedding Quilt
- A London's Calling Quilt
- #SewYourStash (including FQ bundles and Oakshott, yikes)
- Crafts for Baby - whether it's clothes or a squishy, plenty projects have been pinned
- Meet Up and get to know more Virtual friends in person
- Photos Shooting Sessions that are actually successful
I'd love to hear what you have in mind for the New Year, any rollovers?
