My first goal is to get my great granny squares quilt quilted. This will be my main goal, it is a Christmas present for my seven year old niece, Johnna. We are moving this fall and I want to have her quilt finished before we move, so thought it would be a good goal for this month!
I am also trying to get a sewing caddy sewn, it needs to be done by this weekend so that I can take it to my quilt retreat. It is all about people powered sewing machines this weekend, it will be a lot of fun!
I had to sew several strips together to make the front and back pockets. I did not pay attention to my seam allowance and had to rip out all of the seams and resew them together!
scrappy trip along before I start sewing them all back together. So my goal is to have 15 completely finished blocks. I will probably get more finished since I am taking it with me this weekend, but with all of the demos and getting help with machines and stuff, I'm not sure how much actual sewing I will get done.
I also know it will take me a while to quilt Johnna's quilt, at least a couple of weeks.
I have a busy week ahead of me, I have a cake order for Sunday and I don't get back in town until Saturday night so I have to make all the fondant figures this week before I go, and make the frosting, and my sewing caddy, not to mention a couple of goodies to eat at the retreat! Of course, I need to find some time to do some cleaning, can't leave my house a mess!
Have you set any goals for yourself this month?
