New Year - New You - New What?

OK - first off, I have neglected my blog for MONTHS it seems and well, I have no excuse other than life just gets in the way -- seems like a theme for me in 2010. I hope to change that in 2011 and be a little more selfish I think; what's wrong with being a little selfish? Nothing, I say!

So what's been going on in my life you ask? Well not much but plenty enough. Business is way down, WAY DOWN for 2010 so that took a priority to many project and efforts in the last half of 2010. 2011 I hope will bring a renewed life to the world, or at least that is my hope and desire. I know I am not the only one here going through a downturn in the economy and business. Sometimes being self employed is a blessing and a curse at the same time. I am in a planning funk right now and hope to twist that around and get on the priority train real soon and make some new things happen. When you run your own business it's up to no one but YOU to make things happen! Not a big realization but certainly one that needs to be reinforced from time to time, so that's what I have been doing lately. Refocusing, strategizing, prioritizing, planning, eliminating, simplifying...

Where am I with quilting, sewing and embroidery. OUT OF TIME! I'm sure you've heard that before. I didn't get to a tenth of the things I wanted to get to in 2010. I hope 2011 will be different. Let's plan on it. I reorganized a few things in the sewing room so that things are more "in my face" so that it will be a bit more obvious that I need to be working on things.

I'll have a new stash report/update to post as well - it's pathetic really - I had MUCH more come in than go out in 2010. No excuse other than HOARDING! But I like to look at it all organized and ready to go --- now, that's pathetic, I might need to call that A&E Show "Hoarders" perhaps, but it's not that bad really! Honest!

Everyone assured me the other day that if it goes into your sewing room it is not hoarding. I decided that I agree. Looking forward to your report. Lane

I will agree too! It's not hoarding, it's useful!
