Goals for the Month

I discovered that I was starting to get deadlines mixed up so I made myself a little calendar to keep track of all of the link ups and deadlines and appointments that I have this month. 
I decided that this was also a good place to list my goals for the month -- since I can keep in on the wall behind my machine and as a constant reminder of things I should be working on instead of starting new projects and continuing the cycle of always feeling behind. 

My goals for this month are (but not limited to)
  • keep up with my 3 linky projects -- lazy Sunday QAL, Star light star bright QAL, Gypsy wife QAL
  • complete the blocks for the 2013 Block of the month -- apparently I have lost momentum for this project and need to force myself to get this done. 
  • finish binding 2013 Block of the Week -- it's attached but not turned 
  • quilt at least 3 of the quilts I basted this past weekend -- these may wait till after I take the feathers class 
  • Scout and free motion feather classes
  • continue fabric fast -- no buying and purging out 
  • apron project for MIL
  • One very special project -- VSP
I am using this as a way to see how much time I quilt, so each day I write this is before I shut off the machine and so far I have over an hour in each day. Last night I got the top pieced on the Lazy Sunday and started making backing. I thought I may need to buy backing but the hubs looked in the drawer and found something I had overlooked. 
Stay tuned for the top reveal later this week. 

Happy Quilting everyone.


  1. I write like that on my big calendar over the computer - a good nudge. Love that pink, raspberry back.

  2. Good for you. I don't buy many large cuts so I ended up looking for sales for backing fabric.

  3. I tried writing my goals on a calendar but would forget to look at it. I do better with just having my piles out for me to see.

  4. I really like your idea of using a calendar to document your daily sewing and deadlines. Such a great way to stay organized.

  5. Lists are always good for helping to keep you on track. Good luck!
