OMG for March

     I managed to finish fairly substantial goals for both January and February so you would think I would go for another big one, but I've decided to go smaller this month.  At the end of February I was beginning to feel a bit stressed about being able to keep up with my quilt alongs. I eased up a bit on the self pressure and all is good, but I know I am going to be quite busy this month so I want to keep it easy.
  One thing I will be finishing this month is my postcard for the postcard exchange hosted by Patty of Elm Street Quilts. Here's evidence that I have started.  Actually I've got the top of the postcard done so I just have to quilt it and then pop it in the mail.



     But this isn't my goal.  My goal for March is to catch up with the Quilters Planner quilt along.  I'm working on the on point version so I should have four blocks finished by now.  I decided to double up on the same blocks as Cheryl did in the original quilt mostly so I don't have to think about it.  I have one block finished for January, and this is as far as I've gotten with one block for February.



     So I have to make 4 blocks in total to catch up.  Two February and one for January, and then the March block. This  isn't a lot but I have to fit them in around working on Postcard from Sweden and getting things done for my guild's next Bee Day, Block of the Month etc.  Getting caught up with this quilt along will make me feel really happy , so it's my goal.  I'm linking up with Patty of Elm Street Quilts for the One Monthly Goal linkup.

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt they weren't keeping up with their goals. I decided that I'm doing fine and makes sewing a lot nicer when you're not under pressure. Your pieces are so colorful and I love the fabrics--they make me happy.

  6. I had to scale back my goals each month too, I am doing knitting AND sewing goals! Oh well, hopefully this will be a productive year.

  7. Do you have a Janome? It sure looks like one. Whatever it is that you have under that needle looks fabulous. Goals, Shmoals - who cares. Just have fun :-)

  8. Great colors for the Quilter's Planner sampler! I am actually up to date on at quilt along but I am sure that I will fall behind within another few months.

  9. Good luck. I, too, often feel overwhelmed with quilt alongs, but I love playing along. ☺
