Goals

I can't decide whether it's really worth having a separate post to talk about my quilting goals each week - I keep dithering, wondering if everyone reading this is bored (are you?) - of course, by having a separate post for them, you can easily skip over them, and I find that typing all about what I am doing (or not doing, as the case may be) helps me, so perhaps I will stick with them for the time being. I certainly won't abandon the goals lists, as I have found them very useful in keeping me on track...

Last week's list was a bit of a mishmash:


  • journal quilt for the week (deadline 26/7) - done - a day late, but done
  • attach binding to Hawaiian 3 - done, and now have to sew it down
  • recycle challenge (one postcard) for Arts in the Mail (deadline 31/7) - not done, because I realised the deadline was actually 24/7, so I missed it. Oh well!
  • ATC for Textile Challenges - theme - "starts with B" (deadline 31/7) - done, now must post off
  • Manipulated fabric challenge for Textile Challenges (deadline 31/7) - done (in conjunction with journal quilt)
  • quilt a bit more on Forest Challenge - nope. maybe next week!
  • work on Challenge Quilt for theme "inspired by an artist" (deadline 1/8) - finished this, which is good.

Obviously, with the kids home, I can't be sure how much time I'll have to call my own, so I'm going to keep it fairly basic this week (and indeed, most of the summer):

  • journal quilt for the week (deadline 2/8)
  • July arch for Textile Challenges (deadline 31/7)
  • batik beauties postcards (deadling 5/8)
  • quilt a bit more on Forest Challenge

hopefully, I'll be able to get those things done, even with kids home! Sarah has a week of tennis camp, so we won't be doing too many day trips this week, which will help with my time.

I started putting my goals with my stash report because I figure those posts are just for me and people can easily skip over it. Ever time I abandon listmaking - at work or home - I get totally unproductive.

I love seeing what you are doing and nominated you for the Kreativ Blogger award
I think your July arch is great too

I love goals and the ones I write down on the blog are the ones I work really hard at accomplishing. If people don't want to read a post, they can skip it.
