Monday Goals

Monday, September 29, 2008

Donna asked if we were making dents in our stash. Hmmm--not sure!! So I went back to all my old stash reports, and after adding on the back of an envelope, it looks like I've bought 99 yards this year, but used 172 yards. That means I've used 73 more yards than I bought. Can I tell? Truthfully, not really. But my stash is more organized! I think much more before I buy. Every Monday I make goals. If I didn't have goals I would go to the sewing machine and play. Now, playing is good, but you have to have a finish too! I have finished at least 12 UFO's this year, and only one was a wall hanging--the others were all much larger. And I know I've done at least 12 donation quilts. And many of my projects are cut out and bagged up, ready to go. Not out of my stash, but ready! Thanks Judy!!!

Monday goals--

1) load chunky churn dash
2 keep folding fabric, organizing stash
3. work on my heartstrings blocks

With all the work I have around here, I think that is enough. I think I need a vacation! Does anyone want to go camping with me??

That's a great report!

Great job Lori! You are making progress. I too am working on string blocks. I'm planning on cutting my scraps. Checked your measurements to see the sizes you used. Have a great day!

Donna said...

Thanks for the heads up on what you do when you're really stressed. You deserve a vacation after all you accomplish! Good luck on your goals for the week.

JuJu said...

Lori, YES, I'll go camping with you!!! Don't I wish!

I've bought more this year than in probably the last 3 years but still way less than before I focused on using my stash. You've done good!

I have a to-do list of sewing projects for the year...problem is I keep ADDING TO THE LIST as I find/think up new things to make....I'll give a rundown of the to-do and the to-done at the end of the year....don't want to face it before then!
