Annual goal-setting & plans for January – 2017.01.06

At the beginning of each year, I like to review my goals for the previous year, as well as my accomplishments.  Then I think about what I want to accomplish in the coming year.

My goals for the last two years have been to:

  1. explore new exhibit opportunities to enter and show my work.
  2. explore new workshop ideas.
  3. create a series of tree quilts, each with different techniques.
  4. continue to collaborate with my fiber artist sister Anne on one or more fiber art projects.

These are all still relevant for 2017.  In addition, I plan to de-clutter and re-organize my studio.  I also want to start a bullet journal to replace all the lists I keep making on random pieces of paper!  I’ll post about my progress with these projects.


January is going to be a busy and exciting month!

Next week, I’m travelling to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories to teach a 2-day workshop on my Circles techniques.  My husband is coming with me, and we’re looking forward to seeing the ice road, the northern lights and the sun peeking over the horizon.  It’s going to be a great adventure!

When I return from Inuvik, I’m looking forward to starting Susie Monday’s online course Art on the iPad.


Two of my quilts – ‘Circular Thinking’ and ‘Eclipse’ – were accepted to the Road to California quilt show, which starts on January 19th.  I won’t be there, but hopefully someone will send me photos of my quilts on display.

And on January 27th, the Fibre Art Network exhibit ‘Botanical Reflections’ will open at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver BC.   I will be attending the artists reception on Saturday, January 28th.  You can see all the fibre art pieces here.

    I took Susie’s class. I can envision it inspiring additional circular thinking work.
