Checking in on my July goals

I posted a HUGE list of UFO and WIP projects earlier in the month of July.  These projects have been wieghing me down mentally. But I am happy to report that I've made some progress.  This isn't the whole list, but does include the things that are easily achievable.

  • Color Me Happy Saturday Samplerfinished and mailed off as a wedding gift.
  • Jungle table runner - DONE
  • 2 fall table runners (60 degree pattern) - finished!! One to keep, one to give away!
  • June Count On It mini quilt - DONE
  • August Count On It mini quilt - DONE
  • new Saturday Sampler block for July - DONE
  • Watermelon table runner - DONE (handquilted & bound)
  • Black & White Color Me Happy Sat. Sampler - still needs binding
  • Blue Stars (needs borders) - no progress
  • Wildlife quilt - delivered to my quilter
  • Friendship Exchange quilt - still needs binding
  • Pink/Brown 2011 Saturday Sampler - still needs binding
  • Hugs & Kisses (X & O) quilt - still needs binding
  • Snowman table runner - still needs binding
So . . . new UFO goals for August are small but aimed at reducing the UFO/WIP pile some more.
  • Binding at least 2 quilts - one large, one small
  • Put the borders on my Blue Stars quilt


  1. Sometimes, having just a few goals is good. Sometimes, you get the few small goals finished early in the month and it spurs you on to do more!

  2. I need to go by your example, Sara, and set some goals for my blogging... just to get me back at it. You can look at your body of work for July and be proud of your progress. There are no 'idle hands' at your home!
