Wow has another year really gone by? Its been just over 3 years now since I started Richard Quilts which was later re-named Richard and Tanya Quilts. What has happened you say in those 3 years? Well we had Julia she started it all so we must mention her. She is now 2 1/2 and getting cuter by the day. Here she is Christmas morning with her new princess dress.
I have quilted a few quilts. The numbers are not completely correct but we will live with them. My first year (2012) I had 94 completed quilts, my 2nd year (2013) I did 71 quilts, and my 3rd year 2014 I did 63 quilts. Yes I slacked off a lot this year and need to do better in 2015. So in total that is 228 quilts. Note that in all our slacking there have been many I forgot to post about but well 230 is items quilted is not bad but its a down hill trend and we have to stop it.
So what can we do to solve this problem? Oh ya make more quilts. So I am setting a few goals for the coming year and I need my followers to poke me from time to time if I am not fulfilling the goals.
#1 Quilt 1 baby quilt every week for the year (52 baby quilts)
#2 Blog at least 3 days every week (I want to do more but lets start some where)
#3 Create at least 1 new pattern to sell or give away every month (12 for the year)
#4 Have Tanya be a stay at home mom so she can get more quilting done (our goal is by the end of may to have her quit her job)
#5 Make Christmas socks for every family member in the extended family (40 Christmas socks)
So that is our start for the year. I total forgot LAFF for Christmas day my kids had me distracted Christmas eve so nothing to talk about from last week. For those that think I am slacking because I have not posted I did bind 2 quilts today and quilted another. I will post about them soon.
