April/Quarter 2 Goals

I have a lot to catch up on {not to mention a bunch of the pages up top need editing too!} so this is going to be a combined post for all the goal parties. They do a great job of keeping me on track, both monthly and over the course of the year.

In the first quarter of the year, I finished seven quilts from my UFO list, plus shifted several into categories further along the list. AND, I only have one new thing on this list - everything else that was started new, finished in the first quarter. Not too bad.

However, I know going into April and the next few months, my sewing time is going to be severely limited with a new toddler hanging around - long arm rental time will be limited to weekends, especially. I want to get as much quilted in the next couple of weeks, so I can sleep bind at my own pace during naptimes.

My main goal for April is to finish the Little Man's quilt, Bedtime Monkey, before we head back to Korea to pick him up.

Second, the lovely people at Ladyfingers Sewing Studio sent me a nice stack of Dimples - beige to finish off Cat Tails, and greys for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013. Cat Tails can definitely be finished in April.

And then, for the rest of the quarter, there's the perpetual UFO list!

  1. Glad you have a long list of quilting projects to keep you busy until you pick up your new little one. I bet it was so hard to leave him when you came back. Have a safe trip back to Korea and hope the time leading up to your departure passes really fast.

  2. Love the dimples fabric :) Going to be so fn to see the monkey quilt finished!

  3. How do you keep track of all those lists? I think the Monkey looks fine without shoulders, just his head peaking up. Good luck with your plans for April. You'll have a lot going on.
