Half Year Mark…A Look at My Goals

Whaleback, Peaks Island ME

What does this rock have to do with my goals and quilting?  This is one of my favorite spots on the island in Maine. I walk by it many days and love to see it changes.  It seems constant, but there are changes – each year and maybe even each day. This is often a distraction for me, but I think a good one.

When I set my goals earlier this year, I had no idea I would be an Island Batik Ambassador.  My goals are being met AND the goals for the ambassador program, too, are being met.  It has been a very good year so far! I have gotten a lot done and a lot more is on the schedule.  I am really pleased that Yvonne asked us to look back at our goals at the half way mark.  I believe in being kind to myself, but I really wanted to challenge myself this year, little did I know the challenges I would be facThere are a number of goal setting blogs I participate in and these are really helping me to focus.  I am  psyched!

Without further ado, here is a synopsis of what is going on.
