On the quilting front, even though I didn't blog nearly enough, I did finish several main quilts, 3 of which belong to my ongoing "series" (in air quotes because they're sort of loosely defined), as well as lots of littler side projects.

These last two are so new I haven't even blogged about them yet. So stay tuned for more in-depth posts.

Now looking forward. I'm not much for regular resolutions but I do have some goals for 2017.
2. Improve my productivity. I feel like I have a lot of wasted time in my life. I think for me, this means being intentional about how I spend my time, whether it's working, or making art, or relaxing, I need to be actively choosing how to spend that time and not looking up and suddenly realizing I've been websurfing for an hour.
3. Keep making art. My eventual goal is to apply for Juried Artist Membership in SAQA, and for that I need a fairly large cohesive body of work. I don't have any desire to make things just to check a box though, so the end result is I need to just keep working and see where my pieces go.
Here's fingers crossed for a productive, positive 2017!
