Since it happens to be the last day of the month, I think I'll do a January wrap up. Here's what I was able to accomplish this month.
First of all, my one monthly goal. Heidi at Red Letter Quilts started OMG to fill the void from ALYOF not being around in 2016. I chose a circus-themed Project Linus quilt. (I was goal setting post #63.) I finished it today! I had just a little bit of the binding left, and I did it in the car on the way to the zoo! We didn't get back until late, so my picture isn't great, because I missed the natural light. But it is done and ready for donation at the February meeting.
My goal setting for that project is here. I'm also linking up with "Goodbye UFOs" at The Crafty Quilter.
I did my first month of both the stash bee and the rainbow scrap challenge. Both were successful, and I look forward to finding out tomorrow what February has in store for me.
I'm also kinda sorta doing the UFO Challenge at All People Quilt. I listed 12 projects that I hope to complete or make progress on during the year. Their thing is that they draw a number and that's what you work on that month. I'm not really doing it that way, but it happens that January's number was 2, and 2nd on my list was the Midnight Mystery Quilt. I had been really behind, and I now basically caught up! I have my top completed to the point of the pattern. I plan to add a border, but I needed more fabric to do so; it's been ordered but not arrived. So I'm stalled for the moment, but I made great strides this month.
I set some general goals for the year, and one was to complete and donate 12 Project Linus quilts. I took three quilts to the January meeting, so one month in, I'm already at a quarter of my goal!
Hey, if I can keep up this level of productivity, it will be a great year! I'm ready for February!
