So in my last post, I talked about what I accomplished in 2010 - not much.

I have goals for 2011 though! 2011 is the year I plan to get going on work. I miss drawing and art stuff, so I am going to start working on some fabric designs to be printed via spoonflower (possibly submit something to a big-name company..but I think spoonflower first to build up some confidence...)

I want to push myself creatively this year, so I am going to be sewing and selling more work. maybe I'll do a craft show. (might be a good excuse to come back to MN for a visit and do something like craftstravaganza or no-coast)

Color is going to be explored this year! I am always using the same colors, so I think I will branch out soon. I am in absolute love with Ashley of filminthefridge's recent Echino quilt, and if cost wasnt a problem, I would totally make a similar quilt.

Unfortunately...not much can be done until we move early February, too much else to be done. but once we are settled, I'm going to be a sewing monster!

And with that, I am going to have to take it easy on blogging for awhile, there isn't much to show because of all my stuff being packed up.

And really, how boring is it going to be with each post saying that I packed more...I do that enough on twitter! (feel free to follow me - I'm littleblubirdie (no e in blue. for real.)

I'll see y'all on the other side! (of the country, that is!)

2010 stats:

7 finished quilts (two were minis, one table topper, two baby size and two toddler size)

1 quilted pillow

1 set of coasters

2 tops that need quilting

1 unfinished top

2 soft dolls + clothes

1 almost finished potholder

and many more blocks to be put together.

It seems like I got more accomplished in my head than on paper...but 2010 was a strange year.

Here's to a fantastic 2011, hope its better than 2010!
