Judy Laquidara over at Patchwork Times had been hosting a linky party each month for “Getting It Done”. I really liked the idea of setting four quilt related goals for each month. It sort-of helped to keep me on track. But Judy didn’t finish out the year in December and I don’t see any signs of a linky party for this year. I’m not criticizing, mind you, just making a statement.

So I’ve decided that I’m going to carry on the idea by myself. At the end of each month I’ll post a list of four goals and make a report of my progress. I know I’m already slipping, since this is the 8th of January already, but hey, better late than never, right!?!

My goals for January are going to be:

1) Finish the Bonnie Hunter “Celtic Solstice” mystery quilt to the flimsy stage.


2) Finish the Bonnie Hunter “Easy Street” mystery quilt (from last year) to the flimsy stage!! I had it finished as a twin size, but I want to make it queen size, so I have some un-sewing and re-sewing to do. And I’ve been saying I want to get it done since July!!! So, I am going to get it done NOW!!


3) Make a dozen hexie flowers. I have a plan (sorry, it can’t be revealed until it’s done!) so, I’ll be trying to keep up with making hexie flowers for quite some time:


4) Load quilt onto Fun Quilter (and, if I’m really lucky, get it quilted!) This one is for DH (sh-h-h, don’t tell!!):

Okay, that’s my four quilting related goals. We’ll see how well I do at the end of this month. If anyone else would like to join with me to keep motivated you can leave a comment with your goals. This will work even if you don’t have a blog, because it’s not a linky party. Although, I’m not ruling out a linky party sometime in the future. I guess it will depend on how many comments I get about it. So be sure to let me know if this is something that you’d like to join. If it is, then I guess I’ll have to figure out how to host a linky party!!!
