to do: one monthly goal

 I didn't get a single one of my One monthly goals for October done. No, not one. I did finish 3 quilts, but, they were not on the list - 4 patch x , Aunt Mary's double chain, patriotic boxy stars.

That makes November goals easy to decide. But, I think I need to keep it simple. It is crunch time for long arm client Christmas quilts.  I need to make sure I can get them done. I will try to sneak this in for quilting after thanksgiving.

I have used my sewing time to sew, here and there, whatever is close by the machine. I have spent 2020 with a finishing mindset, and I am missing plain old patchwork piecing. However, that can turn into too many new quilts getting started....again.  One thing stays the same, I love scraps, and I  love that they find their way to me through the kindness of friends.

  1. The Christmas fabrics are so pretty! Can't believe that it's almost that time again. Good luck on your goals!

  2. Hi Maggie! Finishing three quilts in a month is nothing to sneeze at - who cares that one other isn't yet done. And if you have customer quilts to finish, well that has to take priority right?!! We'll try and keep you on task - I can see why you like this Christmas fabric. It's almost begging you to finish it since you have the backing and binding ready to go. {{Hugs}} Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Kudos for finishing 3 quilts in a month! That is fantastic! Your Christmas top is looking great and inspiring me to review my fabric as well! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great day!
