October / November Goals

October was not a productive month for me in the quilting department.  The weather was really hot until it was very chilly and wet.  I spent the nicer days working outside and the rainy ones traveling around.  Sewing only happened once or twice a week.

October Goals:

  1. Make a mat for a cart in my kitchen.  Nope.
  2. Piece the cardinal panel Christmas quilt.  Yes!
  3. Quilt and bind cardinal Christmas quilt.  No.  I’m almost finished with the quilting.
  4. Make blocks for a donation quilt (probably log cabins).  No, not at all.

Bonus:  Made a little pillowcase for a travel pillow.

So, a lot more nos than yeses.  And I have no illusions that November will be better, so the new list is modest.

November Goals:

  1. Finish cardinal Christmas quilt.
  2. Secret Christmas project.
  3. Tiny Christmas project.
  4. Make blocks for a donation quilt (probably log cabins).


Are you sewing a lot for Christmas?  I don’t usually, but I thought I’d try a couple of things.  First the studio needs a clean-up.

Good luck on your goals.

One thought on “October / November Goals

  1. It happens. Remember, though, that most people are only able to sew 1/2x per week. I know you have higher expectations. I need to finish a swap gift for my guild swap, but otherwise I am not sewing for Christmas. I thought , briefly, of making something for the nieces and nephews who have their own houses, but maybe next year.
