Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

2018 Planning Party with Quilting Jetgirl

You may click here to see my 2017 goals.

If you click on the link above you can see my goals I posted from the 2017 Planning Party.  I did fall short of my goals but I did make a bullet list journal and didn't do too bad but life got in the way! This year I decided to invest in the Quilters' Planner with Stephanie Palmer.  I have been looking it over and pondering my plans ever since I got it and I think I am ready to roll in 2018.

My 2017 goals included making one quilt a week including the binding.  I only made 35 and most of them were queen size with some smaller and some larger.  But, I did finish 35 quilts that I don't have to do this year! I also worked on organizing my stash, but I still have a long way to go for that.

2018 Planning

Using my new planner, I have chosen 3 main goals for the year.

1. Empty garage of all moving boxes - I have been moved in for a year now and still have a 3 car garage full of boxes!  Oh my!  I am hoping to get one box emptied each day until it is done. I also plan to take before and after pics.

2. Sort all fabric - That seems to be a never-ending project but I have decided to start each week with a reasonable goal for sorting fabric for the week with before and after pics.  I forgot to  mention that I still have fabric in containers in the garage! Oh my!  

3.  Keep house clean - Now, my house isn't dirty, but I like to keep a handle on things and I figure if I make a plan, then I can work it around my quilting and I reference Cynthia Brunz's blog title "Quilting is more fun than Housework!"  I can assure you that I'd rather be quilting!

Well, I have all of this written in my Quilters' Planner so lets's see how I manage everything.

I wish everyone their best in keeping up with their goals.
