My OMG goal for August is to quilt Hampton Ridge.
#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 – finished 7/30/2016
Quilt #4 – Hampton Ridge –
Quilt #5 – Raining Cats and Dogs – top was finished on 4/9/2016. Now that I’m done with Moon Glow! 🙂 I plan to hand quilt a bit of this every day. I’m still working on the cream colored quilting thread.
Quilt #6 – Celtic Solstice – continue to piece bits as leaders/enders.
Quilt #7 – Missing Ivy – finish step 14
Quilt #8 – LQS 2012 BOM “Provence” – Continue working on the alternative block.
#2 – Continue to count my stash, with a true effort to not add fabric on a whim.
#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 7/30/2016 is $3735.08
#4 – Knit weekly
My goal for August is to get back to working on my purple socks each week. I really need to work on this more than one weekend each month if I want these done in any sort of time frame. I’ll change my goal so that I work on this once a week. I just realized that I still have to do the other sock. ;0
#5 – Cross Stitch weekly
Now that the Welcome Project is done, I’m solely working on Mama’s Bukid. I’m working on this a bit at a time and I’m happy with my progress so we’ll continue doing that.
#6 – Scrapbook
… I’m still the same on this… I want to do some scrapbooking but everything is so nicely put away I’m afraid to take anything out. I know that all I need is one box and that I’ll use whatever is in that box but … I’m not ready to move this into a place where I can actually work on it regularly.
Here’s a link to my original 2016 Goals.
Here’s to a great year!
That is a gorgeous quilt and a big goal… good luck!
Thanks so much! 🙂
You have really stuck to your quilting finish goals. This is a beautiful quilt. I hope you are keeping all these gorgeous things. That Mama’s Bukid has come a long way since you picked it up again.
Thanks Susan! And Yes, so far, I’m keeping these. 🙂
Looking forward to seeing how you quilt Hampton Ridge. Mine is waiting patiently in the queue…
I love this quilt. I have seen it before and felt i would love to make this quilt. It is beautiful. congratulations on sewing as far as you have.
Thanks Kathleen Mary! 🙂
Hampton Ridge is a true beauty, Thank you for sharing with One Monthly Goal!
Thanks Heidi! 🙂
Hampton Ridge is wonderful! I hope you made good progress with quilting it this month. I track spending for fabric but not for notions/patterns/books/etc. Last year I used more than I acquired, but this year: hah!
Thanks Nann! I find it interesting to see how much I’m spending. I hope to continue from year to year because I’d like to see the changes.
