Another Goal Coming up

I'm keeping up with this challenge, it really motivates me.  I put down what I need to do, complete it before the end of the month, post about it, then miss updating the group. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!


But in reality is that the point?  No, it's to go through my UFOs and to get my sewing room down to a manageable size, and to challenge myself to keep on quilting with such a busy schedule.  So I am doing well with that.  So I keep doing what's working....  Here's my next goal.....


This ones been on the list forever, and it's one that needs to be completed before the end of June because I"m bring it to California to give it to an Aunt of mine.  The quilt is completed, it's a King size quilt. It's all together, and this picture is a little old.  I have more than 1/2 of the quilt done with little tiny squares, but I still have about 20 square blocks to quilt.  So that's what I'm working on, quilting them.  I have set a goal of 5 squares a week, to quilt (when you do that you usually do more....) or about a bobbin each time (keep quilting until the bobbin runs out).  So it's doable, just tiring on the arms because I'm doing it on my domestic machine (a small one).   Going to have trouble with this as well because I'm a teacher, it's the end of the school year and in high school that means commencement, graduation, awards night, all things after school, and it takes time (not to mention computers coming in, finals with your budget, finals with your students.....  the list can go on and on but I won't).  So it will be good luck to me to get this done, but now I don't have a choice.  Hooking up to One Monthly goal at Elm Street Quilts

    1. That's one way of thinking about it "If at first you don't succeed....." :)
