Project Challenge Review

It was in October -  that I took stock of my unfinished projects and actually did something about them. Now, I fully thought I'd work through all of them, as I did have the time, but I realized that sometimes taking an inventory of where one is and then taking action towards doing something about it - is really a vital step in becoming a successful person. If what is done, is done in anguish, hurry and stress why do it in the first place? 

So... I am happy to say I did accomplish part of my goal and what is remaining has been planned out to being finished in the next six months.

I am also working on a new website for quilters that will be a place for sharing great book titles, reviews, and finished projects. It should be available soon... and along with my goals for 2010 will be discussed in my first post of the new year.

Project Review:
So out of the seven projects I listed in October 2009 - here is my review:
1. Birthday Quilt – (twin size)
        Quilt top/backing fabric are ready to quilt and then bind. It will be quilted professionally and I'll  add the binding. I figured why not wait until after the Christmas rush to get this one done.

These quilts are finished:
2. Churches in the Country – (wall-hanging)
3. Stained glass flower and butterfly - (wall-hanging)
4. Butterflies Return Home – (wall-hanging)
5. Christmas medallion block – (table topper)

6. Stack ‘n Wack block – (orphan block)
        This is now a finished quilt top and destined to becoming a preemie quilt for the quilt guild I attend. I will quilt and bind it myself after I buy the proper batting that is required for it.

7. Beyond Baby Blocks workshop  -  (quilt design)
        This will hopefully be made into a quilt... since I was not inspired by my original drawings, I was able to reconstruct them. Now with the new design ready, it should be fun to make...maybe in 2010!

New Year's Resolutions:

Why not make them unique, creative and personal? Instead of the usual boring ones that not many people have much hope in accomplishing.... look within and find something that you've always dreamed of doing... and set that as your new goals/resolutions for 2010.

Wishing you all a very happy and properous New Year!!
