Looking Back and Looking Forward

I have seen a few postings about accomplishments for 2012 and looking forward to 2013.  Every year I usually set a few goals for my art.  8 years ago I set up a very sketchy 10 year plan.  At that time we lived in Missouri where we had lived for 30 years. We now live in Oklahoma. who knew?  I seem to be on track with my 10 year plan.
For 2012 I did accomplish most of my goals.  I even had to deal with low thyroid and NO energy and we moved.  Despite the two stumbling blocks I did manage to create 4 medium to large pieces, 4 small, 21 8"x10" journal quilts, 23 hand dyed scarves and several yards of painted and or hand dyed fabrics. Some of these can be seen on my FLICKR page, my user name is Debr33.  I have also learned to use my Sketchbooks alot more. I have also started a Sketchbook Challenge with the Missouri  Fiber Artist.  I absoulutly love working with paper now.
For 2013  I really hope to create 5 new pieces that I really thought would be finished by now.  I intend on keeping up with the Sketchbook Challenge.  I also have in my goals to make 2 more challenge pieces for the Playdate group I am in.  I also want to start seriously working on UFO's. In our Fiber Artists of Oklahoma group we are creating a 12x12 monthly inspired by a word. I also hope to do alot more with Surface Design, hand dyeing fabric, and fabric painting.
