One Monthly Goal !!!!

Look what I just came across on Facebook !!!  Elm Street Quilts  is trying to give slackers like me some incentive to get our acts together now that we are starting a brand new year .  You link up your goal this month, then post  your completed goal the next - and it doesn't have to be an entire gigantic undertaking - if your goal is to applique 2 flowers on 1 block that's your goal !!! ( or in my case dig out the sewing machine from under the pile of UFO's - my current goal - ugh!) .   So ..... my new mantra is to spend 10   - 20 minutes a day  - just a little snippet of time - working on something - anything sewing or quilting related .   I have to do this for myself ( work schedule has been just too much and totally soul sucking  - - working in health care is not good for your health !!) .  AND, I have to do it to declutter !!!!  We may be downsizing soon and all my stuff will not fit ( uh oh......).  So, anyway , if you need some incentive and a UFO Support Group ..... zip on over to Elm Street Quilts blog page and sign up !!!  ( Oh and there are PRIZES and designers ..... and did I mention PRIZES !!!)

Be back soon!

Happy New Year 2017 !!!!

(meme borrowed from Pineapple Fabrics)

So here we are at the beginning of another brand new year .  Don't know where the last one went and I can't really think of much that I accomplished in my sewing world ( other than adding yet another UFO to the list .......) . So here's to a new beginning and big plans to get things accomplished !!!   We have another big happy event on the horizon with son #2's wedding coming up in November so I really really need to get organized !!!!!!  

Here's wishing you all a happy, healthy, productive/organized New Year  !!!

Be back soon!
