2012 Goals Update

it's been a long while since I looked at and/or updated my goals for 2012 (last updated here):

1.  Finish T's Quilt (hasn't been touched since December 10th 2011) haven't touched be honest I've kinda fallen out of love with this quilt.  But...I'm actually working on a different quilt for T.  So this goal may be met...but with a different quilt than originally intended (which will make the original quilt another WIP/UFO...but I can accept that)

2.  Finish OUR Quilt (not touched since August 2011) untouched still

3.  Complete at least 2 FWQAL blocks a month (this was becoming an overwhelming project last year, so I'm hoping to keep it honest and accept that it won't be 2 blocks a week!) NOT HAPPENING!  Another project that I've really just fallen out of love with!  It's way back burner right we'll see.

4.  Blog at least once a week I actually think this has gone pretty well.  I may have missed a week once or twice...but that's life and I'm really pleased to see the total number of posts have increased regularly!

5.  Complete Pinocchio Cross Stitch it's been awhile...

6.  Relocate sewing space to craft room (currently sew in the living room, and rarely use my office/craft room...I want that changed!  will also require a LOT of reorganizing and cleaning and getting rid of stuff!) zero/zilch/nada...the logistics and the desk are making this really unlikely to happen.

7.  Make a Christmas Quilt in time for it to be used at Christmas!  (so wanted to do this last year...didn't get around to it!) nothing so far.  but it's next on my list!

8.  Make at least one quilt just for me! using my Flea Market Fancy in the HST this is officially in progress 

9.  Attempt applique on at least one quilt (mini-quilt would work here!) not yet

10.  Make Swoon Terrain Quilt so so so close!  to getting the quilt top done at least, which is so silly as I only have ONE border left to a matter of fact...that's my weekend goal!

11.  Attempt FMQ!  DONE!  

12.  Quilt and bind Girls SQ (before Halloween!) DONE!

13.  Finish Strawberry Swoon (at least do something with the blocks that have been made!) nada

So I crossed off item 12, making progress on item 8 and 10, and some changes to item 1 will mean it's complete the list looking quite as good as I would have liked for it to be already September??  NO...BUT...I'm pretty happy with what has been accomplished!


  1. You got a lot done!! I haven't sewn anything all summer!!

  2. Great progress on your goals. At work we are allowed to change our goals if they no longer make sense. Something to consider if you are really feeling badly about the year.


thank you for taking the time to comment!
