Goals accomplished, goals set

Time to review goals for the week - another good week's worth of work, and as I remembered to take into account the fact that the kids were off on Friday, I didn't set quite so many goals as I otherwise might have done. So here's what I set out to accomplish last week:

  • make an ATC for Anna's challenge with washers and buttons (deadline 31/3) - done this and sent it off to Anna - made two spares to giveaway on the blog
  • weekly Journal Quilt (yes, this one is going to be on the list every week!) (deadline 22/3)
  • join blocks together for Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilt - done, then redone!
  • begin quilting the Hawaiian quilt which is pinned - not only started, but finished quilting this, hoorah
  • start working on the white quilties for the Creative Swaps swap (deadline 26/4)
  • work on March arch for the Arch Swap (deadline 31/3) - March Arch made and sent

Didn't really do anything beyond the goals (other than actually finishing some things I only committed to starting) - but that's ok, I'm happy with it.

So, for the next week (which involves another bank holiday on Monday, so I'll have to cross that day off my working list - though I do hope to do something quilty and go see Ferret's solo exhibition):

  • pin together the next Hawaiian quilt top, ready for quilting
  • set of 6 postcards for Fastenings theme for BQLPC (deadline 31/3)
  • finish white quilties for Creative Swaps swap (deadline 26/4)
  • make a few extra churn dash blocks for the March Block Lotto on to bump the draw up to 5 winners
  • pull out and organise some bits for calico cat quilt for Mom - get at least one block ready for sewing by hand in the evening
  • journal quilt for the week (deadline 29/3)
  • make and attach binding for Hawaiian quilt and brown and purple dragonfly quilt (not including sewing it down by hand)

Not a lot, but a nice variety, so should be something to suit my mood, whatever it might be. Pinning the quilt together for quilting is the least fun project, but if I have a day to myself where there are no kids around and no errands, I can lay it out on the floor and pin it in small bits between other sewing, and it won't be quite so boring.

I noticed yesterday you had all your weekly goals accomplished. Plus dealing with running a household, children, and all that entails. I'm impressed!
