Goals help me focus

I knew that September would not be a productive month for sewing so I set some pretty modest goals, and for the most part I met those goals plus some things I didn't think I would get done.

  • 3 orange RSC14 blocks - yes
  • 5 Heartstrings blocks - only 2
  • complete Sept. Saturday Sampler tasks - yes
  • 2 pillowcases from stash fabrics - actually made 7 pillowcases from stash
  • complete 1/4 of the hand quilting on the Cats wall hanging - yes

A bonus was starting - and finishing - a ghost shaped Halloween project.  Plus I made the 4 blocks for month #1 of a new BOM called House Warming Party.  

And I also finished binding my Paris quilt that was a UFO from last fall.  That particular quilt was the fall mystery quilt we did for Saturday Sampler. I'll post a photo of it over the weekend if the sun comes out and wind quits blowing.

Last but not least, I made a self-binding baby blanket for a gift.  So I'm feeling very pleased with what I actually accomplished after all.

October goals will include some new projects as well as trying to make some progress on UFOs again.  There is nothing big here, but lots of small projects.
  • 3 brown RSC14 blocks 
  • 5 Heartstrings blocks 
  • complete Sept. Saturday Sampler tasks
  • month #2 blocks for House Warming Party BOM
  • mitten theme table topper (UFO)
  • Halloween table topper (UFO)
  • complete another 1/4 of the hand quilting on Cats
  • bind another UFO
  • traveling pillows with pockets for the grandkids for Christmas gifts
