Progress, WIP, and Revisiting Goals

WIP: May 1, 2013

With so many goal driven parties happening in the sewing world I have decided to list them all in one area so I can cross reference my lists and make sure I am setting attainable goals!

The boys were out of town for the last two weeks so I really got a move on my 3X6 Quilting. Actually I only have one block left. I am hoping to wrap this one up by the weekend. Hopefully next week it will be off the list! Today is May and May Goals are in order!

Projects finished over the past few weeks:
Repaired 7/8 pieces of clothing from the closet.

This Week's Plan:
3X6 - FMQ and binding
Hand sew Alabama Swing Skirt
Baste Rainbow Quilt

May Goals
Finish 3x6 and last dress for closet repair... If I can squeeze it in make a new outfit for me....so many to choose from not sure which one!

Goals for this Quarter:
Finish quilting Under the Rainbow (no progress)
Finish hand embellishing Alabama Chanin Swing Skirt (no progress)
Finish Closet repairing the items that need repair (seven of eight items done !!!)
Finish Quilting 3X6 Almost there!

Fresh Poppy DesignWIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced A Lovely Year of Finishes


  1. How cool to have two weeks to concentrate on your project. Way to go for applying yourself. :)

    1. Thanks Cindy. It was nice to be able to concentrate... but even better to have them back with me! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love how organized you are! I make lists, too. Somehow, a project seems halfway done if I write it down:)

    1. I spend more time organizing to do something than I actually spend doing it, it seems frustrating at times... but in the end I get a lot done.

  3. The quilt looks so cute! Your lists, wow, very ambitious. Good way to keep track, though, especially "got fabric for" one. I should make one like that!

    1. Unfortunately... I busted my Stashbusting promise is down the drain. I wanted to get a hold of my stash, but unfortunately my stash is mostly FQ so I was not able to do any wardrobe additions with it. So I did go a bit overboard with buying some fabric for wardrobe this year.... I have been better with quilting purchases. Yikes it is such and addiction.

  4. You've got such a handle on your projects - I'm jealous. I'm just now getting (back) into sewing clothes and am it's hard get use to the yardage it takes. Focusing uninterrupted is such a luxury and sounds like you made the most of your time.

    1. Thanks Karen. I had fun but it is great to have them back.
