New Year's Goals Update!

Way back in January (can you believe that it is July!) I posted my goals and I thought now might be a good time to review that list.  After all...we have passed the half way mark for 2013. Wow! 

So a little recap (original goals in black) and an update...
  • Complete the Craftsy BOM Quilt - All the blocks are done...just need to add sashing and complete the top...then have it quilted.  I think that this is definitely doable by the end of the year. 
  • Complete the two Studio Stitch BOM Quilts - All of the blocks are finished...just need to decide on how to set the blocks and complete the tops.  I have one of them sketched out and know the yardage that I will need buy in order to complete.  The other one...I haven't decided yet.  And a further note...I signed up to do 2 more Studio Stitch BOM starting this month...so I guess those will go on the list to complete in 2014! Hopefully the goal won't read..."Complete the four"...{laughing}! 
  • Catch Up on the Grandmother's Choice BOW - I have one block complete. :(  I can do better!!!  
  • Complete the Christmas aprons for my lovely daughter and I to wear as we bake Christmas goodies in only 11 months - Nope, haven't started this.  I think the fear is the quilting part.  Yep, that's definitely what's holding me back.
  • Complete the Blooming Nine Patch quilt that I started years ago - Nope...haven't worked on this either.  This one requires some additional piecing.  The challenge here is pulling it all out and deciding where to start.
  • Complete the Quilt as You Go quilt that I started even longer ago - See update above for Blooming Nine Patch.  
  • Make a Christmas Village tree skirt - (what was I thinking) I haven't even  started this one!  This one requires lots of embroidery.  I will need to buy lots of thread...again?!
  • Participate in at least 6 blog hops
    • In Your Words Blog Hop
    • Dare to Dresden
    • It's for the Birds 
    • Christmas in July 
  • Make Christmas gifts - Yeah!  Haven't started this either.
  • Eat better, cook more and practice yoga - I am eating better.  Cooking more...well, maybe?!  And definitely more yoga.
  • More trips to the Mountains (definitely) - Two trips in the last month and several before that...oh, and, hopefully another this coming weekend.
  • Dates with Hubby - We are having a fabulous time!

So overall...not great but then the first part of the year is really busy with work so I am excited to say that at least some of the goals are somewhat complete. It is always good to revisit goals as a reminder.

This week in the Quilt Room...I will be working on my Christmas in July project for the blog hop.  I have a couple projects in the works and if I can manage it and overcome my fear of quilting the aprons...perhaps I can have those ready as well for the hop!

Until then...

~~Quilt Much!
