Well, I would say my first month of project priorities was a success! I finished both quilts (Little Sister and Linc), and am totally up-to-speed on my Woodland Sampler. In addition to feeling good about actually accomplishing the goals, I really did find it helpful to have laid them out for myself. It kept me on-track at times when I was feeling a little squirrely and might have jumped onto something else before I finished the other projects. Or when one project had to be paused because I was waiting for backing fabric or something, I could feel like moving to another one of my priorities was productive instead of just being ADD.
So, on to February’s priority list! This will be a little challenging, since I’m going to be away for a week, plus the kids have school vacation for a week. But fingers crossed that I’ll get it done!
1. Baby boom quilt #2, a preppy bit of patchwork. The top is complete, I just need to figure out a back and finish it up.
2. Baby boom quilt #3, which I’m rather excited about. I have discovered my new favorite Kona Solid color: Nightfall. Oh, this photo doesn’t even do it justice, it is the most gorgeous twilight shade of navy blue. There’s going to be a lot of it, with a handful of yellows. I’m kind of excited for this design, I hope it turns out as pretty as it looks in my head.
3. Keep up with the Woodland Sampler. Can’t wait to fill in the one blue frame! I think this one will travel with me.
