January Cross Training Review and February Goals

Ack! Didn’t February just start? Wow, this year is flying! Well, January was pretty productive although it was UFO-neutral. I finished one, my string quilt and then created another with a blog hop. Oops. I finished 2 Project Quilting challenges and 8 scrub caps. I also set a record for me in that I did not buy any fabric except for pre-ordering the kit for the new Tula Pink line. (I mean, I did make an exception for Tula in my use-what-you have plan.)

I also made progress on the sewing room. The elliptical machine has a new home, one chair that was piling with miscelanea was cleared off and two sewing machines were gifted. So, what’s up next?

Well, I found six more UFO’s in the cleaning of the room. So, I decided that February (all three weeks that are left) are about which UFO’s are quickest to finish. I have two that only need bindings and several smaller tops. The goal (and I know this is lofty) is six UFO’s off the post-it wall. One is a panel so I hope to get that done. I’m a little worried because the Joshua Tree panel was one I started after Phil died and just pushed myself to start with a plain border and then my Scrappy Mountain border fit without any fuss at all (thanks Bonnie Hunter for a great block and instructions!) I doubt the quilting muses will smile like that at me again so I better do some math this time!

And, before I do anything else, I need to gear up and go to the grocery store. The fur friends have been quite patient with this flurry of sewing but if we run out of cookie treats, well, I don’t want to have to tell them, do you?

It’s cold and windy here with a hint of a possibility of the white stuff (we get really excited about it where I live in Oregon.) I hope you are warm and safe and surrounded by fabric!

Happy quilting,
