    Well it's Monday and time to post new goals for this week.

    Hope you finished the goal(s) for last week. If you did, Congratulations. If they're still not completed, put them on this week's list and get them done!

    WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS TO GET DONE BY SUNDAY NIGHT?

    My goals for this week (besides working and probably canning a whole bunch more jars of pickles :shock: :shock: )
    pertain to *2* baby quilts I need to finish soon.

    1. Sandwich them correctly and pin well.
    2. Sew around the perimeter and trim and turn right side out.
    3. Begin quilting...(notice I said BEGIN quilting...I'm almost certain I won't be able to finish 2 by Sunday night...but hey - I'll TRY!)

    Posting my progress here does help me. I wonder if it helps YOU?

    Will be leaving on vacation to the coast today for a week. Will bring my hand quilting to do (UFO) and some cross-stitch to do teacups. (Was motivated by another posting severals days ago.) Want to incorporate them into a wall-hanging...eventually.

    Won't have internet connection for a week...I'll miss all of you!!!

    My goals for the week:
    1. Visit our county fair several times...good food and it is fun to watch the livestock shows and see the 4H exhibits in the exhibit hall. (Even more fun because our kids are all out of 4H now and I don't actually have to be there.)
    2. Press the backing fabric I purchased for a quilt that is all set to go to be long-armed.
    3. Finish piecing the a top that needs to be finished in the next week, or so. The long-arm gal has me scheduled for 2 quilts at the beginning of Aug.

    so, i finished quilting baby quilt (65" square) and have the binding 1/2 on, have to hand stitch the rest...hopefully today
    started working on the late round robin...tried 3 different blocks..either don't like the block...don't like the fabric...don't like the way it looks with the rest....this is a nightmare,

    I HAVE TO FINISH THE ROUND ROBIN THIS WEEK!!!
    i'm not putting anything else on my list till i get this done!!!
    (except, getting the binding done on the baby quilt)

    I'm hoping to get my UFO's finished this week. I have several so I decided to finish a Georgia Tech quilt for a guy in Georgia that was suppose to be done and sent months ago.
    I have a Boston Terrier Wallhanger to finish for my dogs message therapist guy that was suppose to be finished a few months ago. Then in the middle of those I started a "No Guilt Quilt" for me that I want to get done. So thats my agenda for the week. I better get at it. :-D

    Since last week, I finished very few of my goals, I think this week I am just going to wing it. I probably will get more accomplished because I will be home all week! Hallelujah. No more VBS, no more running around. (Just a few evenings of Taekwondo, and I can do school work there.)

    Today I will finish putting the binding on a flannel lap quilt. Then there will be no more quilting for the week.
    Tomorrow a friend is flying in from PA so we will pick him up and take him through Yellowstone Park.
    Then our County Fair is going on & I will help with the needlework judging on Friday. Nitty Grity Dirt Band concert that night.
    Back to the airport on Saturday so our friend can fly home (airport is 100 miles away).

    I'll have more quilting goals next week!!!

    Have a great day

    Ok, this is my first time putting up a list, so I hope I don't over-do myself.

    1. Make potholders and fabric card for my mother's 50th birthday and get them shipped!!
    2. Quilt my Downy quilt
    3. Quilt a baby quilt
    4. Make and quilt another baby quilt.

    Do you think I can get it done with a 1yr old and a 5yr old home all week, then my older two (11 and 12) come home Thursday and back to watching my friends two kids (9 and 10) on Friday? I think my plate is a bit full and I spend WAY too much time on this quilting board!!

    I'm gonna keep it simple.

    1.Get around to quilting the baby quilt my sister needs by the end of the month.
    2.Work on the uneven log cabins.

    I say work on them because I KNOW I won't get them done no matter HOW hard I try!
