Well another month March-ed off into the sunset…and I bet you’re dying to know how I did with my goals…Did I fall flat on my face? Well if you had asked me this last week at this time, I would be looking up with mud all over my face! But today, NOT so…since returning home I have been stitching like a crazy lady!
Goal One~ Stitch 10 houses a month…check!
Bringing that to a total of 32 wee paper pieced houses!
My box is full…and I am loving making these little 4 1/2” houses! They are addictive!
Goal #2~ Add two rows to my Clam Shell Quilt Top….check!
There are now 13 rows total all hand appliqued!
I still need to stitch the snowman’s face and add a band to his hat…maybe tonight!!
Goal #4~ Finish a UFO…check! She is quilted and bound…
A label will be added and this should be in the mail by Thursday! Yahoo!
Goal #5~ All the blocks are completed to the Gift Quilt and I have started to sew the blocks together…CHECK!
And the gravy? Four hand appliqued Orange Peel blocks and four wonky star blocks made while reviewing Jo and Kelli Kramer’s new book, Country Girl Modern…you can read about that HERE!
Whew!! I am happy and no mud on this gal’s face!
Next month my goals are going to be a lot more difficult to achieve as I am adding the wedding School House Quilt to the mix (I will be giving it top priority as I want all the blocks completed by the end of April), PLUS I want to complete the Gift Quilt as it will be gifted to a family member in May. In addition, I will be starting another another Quilt Along…’Where the Cows Come Home’ begins tomorrow!! Can I do it?….plus keep my other goals intact? I have my doubts…but I will do my best to get ‘er done!
Thanks for stopping by!! How are your goals going? Has it become a juggling act with you too…and does it feel like the music is going just a wee bit faster? YIKES!!
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!~P
