June is here and I’ll be in Florida for half the month. So I don’t think much progress will be made but I’ll do what I can. I do plan to take some handwork with me and I hope I am able to work on whatever I bring.
For the first time, I’m linking up with Red Letter Quilts’ One Monthly Goal. Click the logo above to get to the linky. I’ve got a lot of goals for June listed here but the one goal that I absolutely want to have done in June is to finish quilting Moon Glow. I don’t plan to have the binding and label on until July but the quilting MUST be done in June. 🙂
#1 – Get 6 quilts done in 2016
Quilt #1 – Tell It To The Stars – finished 2/20/2016
Quilt #2 – Scrapitude,2015 – ==> finished 4/3/2016
Quilt #3 – Moon Glow – My goal for June is to finish quilting Moon Glow.
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. If I can get Moon Glow quilted in June I hope to get this on the frame in July.
Quilt #5 – Raining Cats and Dogs – top was finished on 4/9/2016. I am hand quilting this and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I started with the cream color quilting thread and I’m outlining parts. I finished the first block and I’m working a bit at a time. I’m not really going in any kind of order since I have this machine quilted to keep everything stable.
Quilt #6 – Celtic Solstice – continue to piece bits as leaders/enders.
Quilt #7 – Missing Ivy – finish step 11 which is to piece the inner quilt together.
Quilt #7 – LQS 2012 BOM “Provence” – finish 1 block.
#2 – Continue to count my stash, with a true effort to not add fabric on a whim.
I hope to make it to a quilt shop during our travels and I do plan to buy fabric. 🙂
#3 – Create a hobby budget a stick to it!
My budget for the year was $3,000 and I surpassed it. I’ve adjusted this goal to simply continue tracking how much I spend on my hobbies.
==> Current crafty spending for 2016 as of 5/31/16 is $3297.01.
#4 – Knit weekly
My goal for June is to knit a pair of socks.
#5 – Cross Stitch weekly
My goal is to finish the Welcome project in June.
#6 – Scrapbook
I haven’t done anything for this. It’s at the bottom of my priority list so… I find that everything else is taking up my crafty time. I hope that as the months continue my work life is less consuming and I can spend a few extra hours on my crafty stuff. And then be able to spend some time on scrapbooking! 🙂
Here’s a link to my original 2016 Goals.
Here’s to a great year!
Awesome goals… Good luck!
Thank you! 🙂
Good luck with all your goals for this month.
Thanks Kate! 🙂
Great goals. You are pushing along on the UFOs. Is Raining Cats and Dogs going to Florida with you? Or maybe it will be the XS, because that’s smaller? Have fun there!
Thanks Susan! I’m not sure. I think both Raining Cats and Dogs and the XS are too big 🙂 I’m thinking I will probably bring the wool project and Spooky Halloween.
I still love the colors in you block. Have a safe trip to Flordia.
Thanks Kathleen Mary! 🙂
Wow! Missing Ivy is stunning! Have a safe trip, and good luck accomplishing your OMG!
Thank you! 🙂
