Word for 2016: Experiment

I am joining the line-up of people posting their words for 2106. Mine is experiment. Through experimentation, I will have failures, successes, and mediocre results, as well as frustration and joy. Despite this, experimenting is how we learn–through failure, through repetition, through perseverance. So I am going to experiment!

This blog is an experiment. Can I consistently post 3 times a week for 52 weeks? That is my experiment. Can I find enough of interest to say that people will bother to read my blog or even follow it?

I will experiment with new blocks, like the circle of geese block below from Piece by Number. Paper piecing does not come easy to me, but this was actually fun. I made some mistakes, but got better.

I NEED to experiment with photography. My photos need improvement. I am going to try each month to improve and begin using a better camera, though I have to admit that my husband is not enthused about sharing his camera. Eventually I will buy one of my own. For now, I will share and spend the money on fabric. 🙂

I know there will be other experiments throughout the year, so I am going to relax and enjoy the journey. Here’s to a great 2016!
