New Years Resolutions and LAFF # 149

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.

Your little princess is adorable!! Happy New Year to you and your family. That is quite a large number of quilts for 2014, wouldn't call that a down hill slide nor slacking one bit!!

If 63 quilts in a year is slacking then I'm doomed haha! I really like you list of goals. Mine is fairly similar though less agressive for sure! A friend turned me onto your link party and I just added it to the list of Friday link parties at my new project QuiltAlong.net. Thought I'd drop you a note and let you know :) Happy near year!

Yeah, I don't think 63 quilts is slacking. :) And anybody at all gets a free pass for not posting on Christmas, linky or no, with or without children! Happy New Year to you guys!
