I've been whittling away at my 2016 goals list, slow and steady like a carpenter, and I have to admit that I am pleasantly surprised (an amazed) how much I've accomplished this quarter! These past weeks have been whirlwinds of colds, sniffles, birthday parties, and anything and everything but time at my sewing machine. With a little luck, and some concentrated time, I hope to finish up my Farm Girl Vintage quilt, which is the last thing to be completed for my quarterly goals! Hmm... still contemplating that border!
I'm right on track with my bi- monthly goal of finishing my bee blocks early instead of waiting until the last minute. I have to admit that what I have enjoyed the most is that everyone's taste's are so different... it's nice, and sometimes a challenge, to work with colors and combinations that are a little outside my "norm". Magda is a master of manipulating a softer and more neutral palette.
Speaking of a softer palette, the blocks for my Penny quilt have been done for a while, but I just had to put them together. I was needing some mindless sewing a few weeks ago, and straight line connecting blocks did it! This came together rather quickly, but that was also kind of my intention with such simple blocks.
I'm still pinching myslef on having finished my major milestone, aka Facing East quilt top. I honestly never dreamed that I would have the top done so early in the year. I just finished the quilt back this week, and it actually feels like a doable goal for the second quarter! (mind you, I put this wopper of a quilt on my yearly goal list)
Where are you on your quarterly goals list? Do you finish early or do deadlines push you to finish just in time?
