I am not really sure, dare I say convinced by the word for the year thing. I did have a stab at it a few years ago, but couldn't really comment on it's success or otherwise.
However, this year I am faced with a number of self imposed goals and I really want to try and reach them, so as a reminder of those goals I have chosen the word Implement.
Implement better work routines. Implement more output. Implement better organisation, which will undoubtedly help the above. Implement a healthier lifestyle etc, you know, those New Year things.
Just get things done in other words.
If you type the word into Google there are lots of flow charts and whatnot and I like this one from the Australian Govt. I think it could be applied to quilt making!
I also have got a little phrase that I am going to implement.
Use Stuff Up!
This is related to the pics I have attached to this post and which I will go into greater detail about soon.
