January One Monthly Goal

So this is the year I am going to work on setting and keeping goals.

For January I am setting 3 goals:

1. Work on getting caught up on the Good Fortune Mystery QAL by Bonnie Hunter. I got behind with taking almost 2 weeks off to go on vacation with DH. Just putting the last border on it!

2. Finish one UFO which is “Homecoming”. I just need to finish the quilting and put on the binding.  This is an error.  Homecoming has been shipped.  This was supposed to be my “Heartwarming Sentiments Quilt” which is pieced and just needs completion.  Homecoming will be updated when I receive the pictures.  No work done on Heartwarming Sentiments since we had take another trip to Vancouver to see about a life altering  treatment for DH.

3. Design and make a new project bag to carry some hand stitching with me while we go to town or on trips to see doctors. Finished a total of 4 bags; Alovely satchel type to carry handwork, and 3 vinyl windowed pouches!  4 more pouches are cut out and ready to be put together.

First pouch already filled with fabric for baby quilt for my third great grandchild.

My bag for handwork complete with several inside pockets, vinyl, fabric, zippered and Velcro tabs.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your 2019 is starting off right! Carol 😄

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! I love making the monthly OMG goal – it really helps me to focus and get one project moving forward. Often, it means a finish for me. I look forward to seeing your project bag, and it sounds like you are oh so close to having Homecoming complete. ~smile~ Roseanne
