I started out this post in a very negative fashion, realizing that I hadn't finished my August Goal for ALYOF. Shoot - I didn't even pick up that project and work on it!
All of that made me feel bad, to notice the shortcomings in my life. But then I did a swift kick to my brain, erased what I wrote, and restructured my thinking to "So what, Barb, if you didn't do what you intended. Life gets in the way. Deal with it, and move on."
So I am moving on to declare an October Goal for ALYOF. Go, me!
I've been rather slow on getting my triangle quilt together. I originally started it as part of the Sassy Quilter's Triangle Quilt Along in the spring of 2014. Oops. I really wanted to do a triangle quilt. Now I am! I spent the weekend at a quilting retreat with some good friends and got a lot of progress on my version of a triangle quilt.
So, with three weeks left in the month, I am going to set my goal as getting the quilt top finished and quilted. I'm not going to go as far as to say I will get it bound by Oct. 31. Don't want to get too crazy! But I will have it quilted.
Whew - that feels good to set a goal, and aim to get it accomplished.
