My favorite time of year is the entire season from Halloween through New Years. I love the lights, the family time, the kindness of others, all of it!
And, at the end I get to reflect on the year and make some goals for the new one :) (we all know how much I like lists!) So, in that spirit, I am sharing what I am most proud of from 2015 and what I'm looking forward to for 2016.
I graduated from UWM with a Master's Degree in Violin Performance!!! This is the thing I am most proud of, from last year, and from my life as a whole :)
I finished 4 couch or bed quilts, the most I've ever done in one year, 2 tree skirts, 2 other quilt tops, and 1 mini quilt.
I became a cross stitcher! It's so much fun and has slightly taken over my quilting time...
I moved back to Colorado and have been attempting to make a go as a freelance player and teacher (so far its working out) while living on my own as an adult. Some days are better than others.
In 2016, I have plans! Not crazy ones, but some exciting ones none the less.
I have 13 students and I want to triple that number so I am no longer needing to work as a substitute teacher (which is fun, but not what I really want to be doing).
I am practicing (what else is new???) like crazy now that I'm full recovered from my wrist injury so that I can win an audition for a paid orchestra job! This is my main goal, I am super excited and hopeful.
I joined my first ever swap on Instagram. I'll let you know how that goes, it should be fun.
I have several quilts planned/in progress and I would love to be able to finish them up. Let's be honest though, I have the attention span of a gnat, so I'm not sure how well this one will go.
No matter what comes, here's to a fantastic 2016!
