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 to a great year!
