It’s time for Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl’s mid year link up to help with keeping us on track to meet our goals and plans for the new year.
My goals for 2022 were to finish the quilts that are in those bins, and complete each and every new project I started in this year. I’m happy to be able to continue doing some pattern testing for all of the wonderful designers I have been assisting and I would also be satisfied to continue with the charity quilting I have been doing.
My year started well, but in February we lost my 2 year old great granddaughter and my best friend’s are experiencing horrendous health issues which has meant I have been travelling to a Memorial Service and am at my friends place almost weekly.
I had some fun challenging myself by doing 5 out of 6 Project Quilting Challenges:
Did you see the totes in the photo at the beginning of my post? They were filled with my unquilted tops, complete with backing, binding and extra fabric in case I decided to make any of the quilts larger. I did get two UFO’s finished but still have 2 more bins to go.
The tracker that Gail Shepherd from Quilting Gail has been a great tool for me to keep track of my projects:
I even started some hand work this year since I had lost my mojo and needed to keep my hands busy:
I also managed to get some quilt tops finished for both Victoria’s Quilts Canada and Quilts for Survivors; two charities that I care about and try to support:
I have done some pattern testing in these past months;
Playing with my long arm is the one thing I don’t get to do often since the studio is 5 hours drive away, but when I get there it is nice to be able to play. I did have an issue and she needed to go to the emergency department, but she is back home on her frame now. 😉
Considering all that real life has been throwing at my family and friends this year, I am content with the progress I have made. I can only hope that things will settle down and I can continue trying to get those bins emptied and not add to my UFO List. 😉
Thank you for stopping by to read my post. 😁 Carol
