Well, I feel good that I made two of my three goals I set for myself for the first quarter of the 2014 Finish-A-Long. They were big goals! Now to think about the next three months.
Since I have a lot of business travel and a vacation in the weeks ahead, I know I need to rein myself in on my goals. But what to do? What to do?
Okay - going to keep it small this time.
1. Get the fabric cut out and top pieced for my niece's wedding quilt. If I get this done by end of June, I can get it quilted and bound by end of July and I'll be in good shape for her August wedding.
2. My only brother just found out he has lung cancer. So I think I will set everything else aside and make him that quilt that has his name on it. This diagnosis came from left field and is leaving us all a little stunned, so it will be good to focus my energies on this project.
3. And on the slight chance I have more time, I want to get my Charm Pack Cherry Quilt quilted and bound. The top is already together and deserves to be finished.
That's it. My goals. Except I'm going to reverse the order and do my brother's quilt first. I don't want to show the fabrics for these since they are gifts and especially for my brother, I want it to be a surprise.
Remembering to smile as I quilt,
