2016 Goals – March

Okay, this post is a little early but that’s okay.  I feel like sharing where I’m at and it’s a great reminder for me on what is on my list for February.

#1 – Get 6 quilts done in 2016

Quilt #1  – Tell It To The Stars – finished 2/20/2016

Quilt #2 – Scrapitude,2015 – this is on the quilt frame and my goal is to get this quilted this month.

Quilt #3 – Moon Glow – this is in queue.  I plan to get the backing ready for this this month.  As soon as Scrapitude is done, I want this to be ready for quilting.  If everything comes together right, I may be able to get started on quilting this in April.  Label will come later since I’ll be quilting with a dark blue/black thread.

Quilt #4 – Hampton Ridge – this is in queue. I still need to get the backing and label ready for this. But I will not get going on this until Moon Glow is being quilted.

Quilt #5 – Raining Cats and Dogs – I plan to get the borders on this month.  Then when Hampton Ridge is being quilted, I’ll get the backing together for it.

Quilt #6 – TBD… Possibly Celtic Solstice or Missing Ivy.  I think Missing Ivy is closer to being done than Celtic Solstice so it might move up the chain.

#2 – Continue to count my stash, with a true effort to not add fabric on a whim.  

For March, my goal is to continue to not add to my stash.  I’m in the black for once and I’m loving it.  With all the quilts coming up to be quilted, I’m hoping I’ll be able to stay in the black.

#3 – Create a hobby budget a stick to it!  

I’m not doing a very good job at sticking to my budget.  But I’m doing a great job tracking what I’m spending and seeing where I’m at with my budget.  I don’t believe I’ll be spending much more the rest of the year since the big shows are done.  I will continue to support my guild and attend the workshops they’ve got planned.  I also plan to support the teachers that come.  So far as of 2/29/16, I’ve spent $2565.43.

#4 – Knit weekly

My goal for March is to work a bit each week on the Rosie Hat.

#5 – Cross Stitch weekly

My goal for March is to get the right border done.

 

"Welcome" Cross Stitch Project 2/27/16

#6 – Scrapbook

For March, grab one of the project boxes and start working on it.

Here’s to a great year!

  1. It’s so nice to see so much progress on your main list of quilts to finish. Great going! The other things are moving along, too. You are so fortunate to have been able to spend that much for your quilt budget!
