Happy New Year!

It's that time of year to try and bring focus to the days ahead. But for me, closing out last year is a good starting point.

Last years "14 in 14" was good for me. It mostly has to do with learning new things but sometimes it needs to be about getting things done.
  • I stuck with Duolingo and my Spanish learning. (they teach a lot of languages and the price is right (FREE) so do check it out.)
  •  I am still doing the "Practice" photo class with Katrina Kennedy. It's a year long effort.
  • I finished the "Dyeing to Design" class with Elizabeth Barton. It was good.
  • I continue with Lightroom and need to step it up this year.
In addition:
  • Took a family trip to South Africa to attend our nephews wedding.
  • Documented our trip to Spain with a Blurb photo journal book.
  • Volunteered time by leading both a geranium and wreath sale for a ladies group to which I belong.
  • Organized a small quilt show for the United Methodist ladies group.
  • Completed several scrapbooking classes and a number of iphoneography classes. All online stuff.
  • Took a trip to Hawaii for some R & R.
  • Entered my quilt Heirlooms in SAQA's Food for Thought exhibit. It was accepted and the first venue is the Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY, a place I visited many times when I lived in St Louis. To me, this is the best quilt museum around and I can't believe I will have something hanging there. 
  • Got an Eagle (that's a 3 on a par 5 hole) at Pumpkin Ridge...hole #11, from about 135 yards out. It's all luck but then, it's good to be lucky:).
  • Attended my 50th grade school reunion. How did we get so old but good that it was a blast and we can still have fun!
  • Remain a totally geeky Trailblazer fan watching as many games as is possible. Go Boys!
What are you up to?
