January Goals

One of my goals this month was to get my lists all updated.

I can state that my UFO’s list, To Be Quilted List, I Want To Do List are all done!

My new Daytimer is filled out and I have been using it!

I did get sidetracked by making a notebook cover with the year on it in order to start organizing my notes so I can find them easily.

Playing with my new Appliquick tools is fun!

My proposed quilting time is blocked out for my planned sewing and I’ve even allowed time for the squirrels

My scrap bin is cleaned out and everything is cut into my scrap system (pizza boxes).

My scrap users system!

My already added (my bad!) projects have been added to the list

I have everything pulled from my stash to make some practise quilts at my Guild Class tomorrow so I can start working on doing some FMQ and Ruler Work. Those To Be Quilted Piles are haunting me!

I have even started planning for some new classes to teach at my Guild. The group of quilters are incredibly fun and always ready to learn new things. If you have any suggestions for one day or half day projects, please do leave me your suggestions in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you. 😉 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. I want to learn how to face a quilt instead of doing binding!! I wish you were in my town, I’s love to take a class from you!! I also want to learn how to do a OBW with a panel.

    1. Facing quilts is a nice way to finish them. Several of my students have chosen facing instead of binding to finish their quilts. I wish you could come to my classes, too! My little group of quilters have fun at our Guild. Class fees are usually $5.00 – $10.00 and since I usually teach as a Members Day, it’s $2.00. Doing OBW with panels is another of my favourites. I helped a student 3 months ago with one. It started as a wall hanging and ended up being a king size duvet cover! She used every piece and had the panel in the middle with several borders. It was incredible!

  2. Hi Carol! You do have to give yourself a break as far as the quilting pile goes . . . but I sure understand the itching feeling and wanting to get back to it! {{Hugs}} I love Susan’s ideas for classes, and I also wish I lived nearby. OBW?? One something something? HAHA! My brain is addled – I can’t think that stands for. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Teaching and sharing my bits of knowledge is so much fun. I love the aha moment when somewhen gets the idea! The OBW class was great! Some of these ladies even traded pieces if they liked each other’s colours better and the runners/bed scarves, wall hanging were incredibly beautiful! I do wish the people I’m getting to know on line were nearby. Can you imagine sitting down with groups of these bloggers, sewing and visiting ? 😊 Carol
