It’s the last month of the year and the final month to accomplish all the goals for 2016! It’s also a time of reflection and a time to start thinking about next year.
My OMG goal for November was to finish Missing Ivy! But I didn’t do it. So now it is my OMG goal for December.
The top is finished and the back is ready. I need to press everything, trim the batting and get on the long arm at my local Bernina dealer.
#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 – finished 9/29/2016!
Quilt #5 – Raining Cats and Dogs – top was finished on 4/9/2016. I need to continue hand quilting this baby. Even if I do a bit at a time. I don’t know if that will happen this month with everything else that is going on. If I do, great. If I don’t, oh well – it will be there for 2017.
Quilt #6 – Missing Ivy – Press the top, press the back, trim the batting and quilt it. Then I got to bind it.
Quilt #7 – Have Yourself a Quilty Little Christmas! – I have the final kit for this project and I need to get the border on. Then I want this to be one of the finishes for 2016 so I’ll need to quilt and bind it by year end. It’s a small quilt so I’m planning on just doing it on my domestic.
Quilt #8 – Celtic Solstice – My plan for the rest of the year is to get the top done and then have this ready for quilting in January 2017. I didn’t finish getting the inner top done but I’m very close. I would like to get the top done (including borders) for December.
Quilt #10 – 2012 SoCal Quilter’s Run Mystery Quilt – Area One – This is on hold until January.
Quilt #11 – Scrapitude 2016 – I will continue to work on clue #1 as my leader/ender.
#2 – Continue to count my stash, with a true effort to not add fabric on a whim.
As of 11/30/2016, I’m at net Added 37.972 yards for the year.
#3 – Create a hobby budget and 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 11/30/2016 is $4,571.73
#4 – Knit weekly
Finish my pink/blue socks.
#5 – Cross Stitch weekly
Continue my progress on this.
Continue working on the new project…
#6 – Scrapbook
Now that we have a date for the crafty girls’ weekend retreat. I need to book a place. I will probably not do this until January since we scheduled our retreat for the weekend after Easter 2017 and that’s in April. I’m thinking of renting a small house in San Louis Obispo or some coastal CA town.
Here’s a link to my original 2016 Goals.
Here’s to a great year!
