First Quarter Goals - #2018FALQ1






This first quarter is a busy one for me!  Some of you know I moved from our house of 22 years to an apartment (still have a sewing studio).  Well, this little company that I do some consulting for is moving the end of February and I am in charge of helping coordinate some pieces of the move.  This week has felt like I lost a lot of time, but its the weekend and I am going to use it.

If you aren't familiar with this group, please jump over to Beth at She Can Quilt.  Everything you to need to know is right there! Basically, we list our goals in the beginning of the quarter and at the end of the quarter 'fess up to what we have/not accomplished.  I am going light as I think 3 may be it.

As I was thinking of this I felt like a little Gilbert and Sullivan....

I've got a little list
I've got a little list
Of society offenders undone quilting projects 
Who might well be underground forgotten
And never But would surely be missed
They never would surely be missed


1.  Wonky Christmas Tree Table Runner
Quilt
Embellish
Bind



2.  Loon - on my UFO list for 3 years:
Attach lily pads, grass, flower
Quilt
Bind


3. Fancy Forest
Quilt
Bind


Also, I will have one other project to do, and I am not sure of its deadline, so it will be fun to see what the 2018 Island Batik Ambassadors will do.  

That's it for now....

Linking up to 2018FALQ1!

  1. You will, and I love your poem. I was hoping maybe to get it done in January, and even thought at one point I could finish in December, but I think we are missing two weeks in Maine where it is living. So it will be February before you see it! I have plenty to do here in Mass (the table runner, washing Squiggles fabric - still).

  2. The loon is Minnesota's state bird, so of course I'm excited to see you finish that one. I cannot believe you are involved in yet another move. Hope it goes smoothly and doesn't take up too much of your sewing time!

    1. Thanks, Wendy. I love the pattern but am a little concerned about the quilting. I think I may have to do it by hand as it is a lot of stuff on the surface to run into - egads. I thing gettting it done in Feb could be tough - but I should be able to do it.
