So, I can cross another thing off of my summer to-do-list. This one is my good list: the one with goals and fun stuff to do!
I climbed a 14er on Monday. If you are wondering what a 14er is, here in Colorado we take great pride in our mountain's elevation, and a 14er is a mountain peak measuring in at 14,000 feet or higher.
The mountain I climbed is called Mount Bierstadt, and it is one of the easier peaks to climb. I definitely wanted to start on the easy side of things, so that I can work up to a more difficult climb next time.
And there will be a next time, for sure. Hopefully before summer and fall are over!
Still on the list for this summer? Go dancing (coming soon!), climb the Manitou Incline and learn to swim (just gotta add the coming up for air part).
I hardly ever make New Year's Resolutions, simply because I don't keep them. I do, however, make goals, because without goals I tend to just think a lot about the things I want to do. Goals are, in a sense, resolutions without the pressure, you know?
In 2013 I have some things I want to do, craftwise.
***Make Aubry a rainbow quilt.
***Make t-shirt quilts for a couple of my kids. The shirts are all picked out and ready to go!
***Finish the double wedding ring quilt that I found at an antique store.
***Grow more confident in machine-quilting.
***Learn to crochet
***Make more things just for me.
***Finish Micah's ties and but out bowties.
***Develop my sewing classes.
***Make a quilt that I love, no matter how hard or how many tiny pieces are in it. A mini-quilt, maybe?
***Sew more for my handmade shop.
***Just sew more in general. It relaxes me.
That's it! I have that list on my desk so I can see it and not forget the direction that I want to go.
