October / November Goals

October

Happy November!  It’s crisp and sunny and leaf-covered here, perfect quilting weather (after I get the garden cleaned up and put away!).

October’s quilting was a mixed success.  I really like the String Ornaments quilt that I just planned to start, but had to finish.  Handy Dandy, on the other hand…  I think I’m just bored because every block is quilted the same way.  Whatever the reason, I put it off and put it off, until I finally got it out and quilted one row of blocks.  (Thank you to the Twilters on Twitter for all your encouragement!)  Then I spent a week very sick and couldn’t quilt at all, so there went the month.  I’ll keep it out and try to get back to it between tasks this month.

 

October Goals:

  1. Make donation blocks for Kat’s September/October block driveYes!  I made a dozen and mailed them.  See above.
  2. Finish quilting Handy DandyUm, no.  I got it out and quilted one more row of it, but there’s a lot more to do.
  3. Bind Handy Dandy.  No.
  4. Begin a Christmas scrap quilt.  Begun and finished!  Once I started, I couldn’t stop on this one.

 

November will begin with a commission quilt, and then I’ll see what else I can find time for.

November Goals:

  1. Design, communicate, and order fabrics for Louisville commission quilt.
  2. Piece top for Louisville.
  3. Quilt and bind Louisville.
  4. Pull fabrics, begin cutting for Charlotte’s new mystery.
  5. Work on Handy Dandy.

 

As far as I know, I’m not sewing anything for Christmas, but who knows?
