Yes, "goals" plural.
I need to reduce the amount of fabric I have. I can do that by making more quilts, which is what I really want to do, or get rid of some of it. Of course, after doing one or both of these things, I need to buy less fabric.
Now, I know myself well enough to know that I won't stop buying fabric. I love fabric. It's the highlight of my week to click on my favorite site, The Fat Quarter Shop, and browse and poke buttons. I just need to be more deliberate in my selections. I started doing that this year. Don't laugh! My purchases were still very large, but a lot of that was purchased with a plan in mind. There weren't many speculative purchases.
The future is never certain, and I feel this is the year that I must make plans and goals and stick to them. I have to and I will.
In the next few weeks I have to redo my stash room. The large shelves holding fabric are sitting on a non-weight-bearing wall, and those must be moved to the other side of the room. The thought of doing that is daunting, but it will afford me the opportunity to go through that stuff and make decisions.
So I'm onboard for with Judy for 2009. After eight years of buying (and making appx. 120 quilts) I'm overwhelmed and must gain control of the stash. May the best man win!
