Path for 2014

Leader and Enders....
 My leader and ender project has been using my Accuquilt for half square triangles. The long range goal is a Lady of the Lake or Oceans Wave quilt. The pattern said something like 800 squares. I have several hundred done. It is amazing how quickly they add up. This is my first attempt at sewing all the squares and triangles together to make a block.

Now on to some accountability for myself....

My goals for 2014 are simple. They all involve spending more time doing the things I enjoy. In full disclosure, this has been my goal for at least the past 2 years. What I've faced is that the time will pass whether I spend it doing things I love or whittling the time away. So, here are my simple goals.

1. Let it go. I saw an interview of Bill Clinton reflecting on Nelson Mandela. Clinton asked Mandela if he wanted to call out his guards/captors at his inauguration. Mandela said something to the fact that if he held on to that emotion, he would still be captive to his guards. Mandela told Clinton you have to let it go. For me this also involves just not saying it. Let it go and keep my mouth shut. Simple.

2. Stick with hard projects. I spin around rather than jumping into the unknown. The Antique Wedding Sampler and Di Ford's Mystery Quilt will be my commitment to this goal.

3. Yoga and spinning. I love it when I do both. Just do it.

OK, that's enough. I will have accomplished a lot if I do those 3 things.
