Reverb14: At the Finish

(For the past four years, I’ve used Reverb10 prompts to give myself a question to answer every day of December. It’s a great way to reflect on the year and set goals for the future. I’ve kept my favorite prompts, added a few from other sources like Project Reverband created my own month-and-a-bit of questions.)

At the Finish. What’s next for you?

2015 is next.
The Year of the Finished Project. At least 15 of them.
The Year of the Wild Woman Circle. And making my own.
The Year of the Primary Series. And the colorful leggings.
The Year of Keeping the Promotion. And the New Profile.
The Year of Adjusting to LA.
…ok, perhaps not the last one.

Reverb14: Appreciate

(For the past four years, I’ve used Reverb10 prompts to give myself a question to answer every day of December. It’s a great way to reflect on the year and set goals for the future.

Appreciate. What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year?

My marriage. This is the 14th Christmas we’ve spent together. This last year has proven that it’s a strong marriage, ready for 14 more.

While I also appreciate its strength, I also know that it’s fragile. Long distance sucks. Both of us working so hard sucks. If one of us wanted a baby, or a different lifestyle or was seriously ill, it would be hard to feel this strong and sure.

I appreciate what I have in my marriage, and don’t take any of it for granted.

Reverb14: Make

Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

I made almost nothing this year. In fact, I un-made an entire home. Settling my boxes and boxes of unfinished craft projects into a new home (and re-arranging things twice to make them fit) I realized that it was sad – just sad! – to move projects like that and never finish them.

2015 is the year of the project. The finished project. I’ve already given myself a head-start on the first – a quilt made from jelly rolls of batik fabric. I haven’t bought fabric like that in a long time. It makes this first project that much easier – just what I needed.
