I'm joining Yvonne over at Quilting Jetgirl for the 2021 goal setting link up. But first, let's look back at 2020. The year certainly didn't turn out how I thought it would last year when I set 2020 goals, but then, whose year did?!!
1. Use (or give away) at least as much fabric as I bring into the stash. Yes, now there is nearly 60 yards less in the stash than there was at the beginning of the year.
2. Blog at least once a week; continue posting monthly goals and stash reports because they keep me focused and accountable. Yes, most weeks I've blogged a couple of times, some weeks three times, and I've kept up with the monthly reports.
3. As time permits, continue making donation quilts (see #9). Yes, due to Covid and staying at home there was ample time for sewing. I made 14 donation quilts, mostly for Operation Shower.
4. Review list of UFOs and determine whether to keep & finish or get rid of each one. Finish at least two of the projects on the list. Finished one quilt on the list, Have Faith, and sent 9 unquillted tops out.
5. Send unquilted donation tops to someone who can/is willing to quilt and donate them. Sent 5 tops to CIL in January and two more in December; also sent two to QBB.
6. Participate in Hands2Help and 12DCIJ. Yes; participated in H2H but 12DCIJ did not take place. Also participated in Christmas blog hop events with Bernie of Needle and Foot.
7. Do something with the STLMQG Color Spoke BOM blocks, perhaps inspired by the Gypsy Wife concept. Yes, Color Spoke is finished to a flimsy and is layered and basted for quilting.
8. Complete WIGSP Piecing Group project to a flimsy. Yes, not only a flimsy, but it has been quilted by Sandy and is ready to be trimmed and bound.
9. Prep for moving to AZ and living in temporary housing for several months. In progress. Although this did not happen in the spring as planned, the move will take place in January 2021 with no need for temporary housing.
Not exactly as I expected, after all it was 2020, but certainly not bad.
In addition, I made three significant quilts that were not donations, Corona Medallion, Warm Strippy Spiral, and Lighten Up LCT.
I offered Warm Strippy Spiral to my son when he was here for Christmas, and he accepted, so now this is his sofa quilt. It goes nicely with his home which is decorated in greys and neutrals, so it provides a nice pop of color.
1. Move to new home in AZ and get settled in.
2. Join quilt guild at Pebble Creek.
3. Blog on average at least once a week; some weeks will involve travel so there may be stretches without any blog posts.
4. Bind and finish the WIGSP, now known as How Many.
5. Quilt, bind and finish Color Spoke. If possible, enter it into STLMQG's show in July.
6. Start a new long-term or complicated project or BOM.
7. Continue making donation quilts as opportunities with PC Quilters become available.
8. If possible, enter Corona Medallion into CSQ's show in October. If WIGSP is eligible, enter that too.
