Monday Milestones–12/20

Last Week’s Goals:

1.  Work on Tuesday Bee Gifties.  I got these done on Monday.  Nothing like the last minute to get something done.

2.  Trim and bind pink and purple quilt.  I trimmed the quilt on Monday.  I had been wanting to use leftover backing for the back and then found out I didn’t have quite enough to make binding for it.  My second choice was to make binding out of leftover strips from the front.  Not an appealing prospect, I might say.  I was taking a break, went to the computer and The Fat Quarter Shop had the batiks that I used on for half off.  I was able to get two yards (way more than enough!!) for the price of one and then it got here on Thursday.  Saturday I got it done after doing some last minute shopping while the kids were still at the sitter’s.

3.  Make stockings for the family.  I decided to shelve this project for now.  I had too much to do, company is coming to stay with is for a while starting later today.  I got a big bad case of the “bah humbugs” on Wednesday when I started to work on them.  I didn’t want that looming over my head and remember about that every time I look at them, so I just decided to wait and make them for next Christmas. 

This week’s goals:

I have absolutely no sewing goals this week.  If I can get into the sewing room this week, fine.  If not, oh well.  I am not going to press myself with any sewing goals.

The only real goal I have is to get all the presents wrapped by the appointed date.
