I have decided to set some goals for myself in this New Year. I have decided that I would like to take some time to do some things for me. One of those goals is to spend more time with family and friends just enjoying their company. I did just that today....I went to lunch with a girlfriend. We had a wonderful time. It was so nice to just sit and talk and enjoy a wonderful meal.
Another goal set is to completely finish at least one quilted project a month. I have so many projects that they could keep me busy for the rest of my life. I am not kidding...and bad girl that I am...I keep on adding to the pile.
So today I worked on a few of my projects. I decided to start with a super simple one to get me motivated. A simple little quilt made up of 9 four patch blocks and a border. Here are the cut squares all ready to go.
My nine completed 4 patch blocks.
The 9 blocks all sewn together....
And the finished top with the border added.
I got it quilted and the binding sewn on. I just need to hand sew the binding to the back of the quilt and it will be finished. I'm planning on completing it tonight.
I also quilted another small quilt that I had sitting around and quilted 2 little mini quilts. These all need bindings yet, but I feel I accomplished quite a bit today. Now to just keep going.
I have also set a couple of other personal & professional goals for the year, but won't bore you with those.
Have a wonderful evening~Becky
