This is the thread where may share your goals for the week with the world! Or at least with our little corner of it. Some of us have found that sharing our goals makes us more likely to actually work on them!
I completed last weeks goals of a couple of ruffly scarves (and gave them away already!) and a couple rows of the baby afghan. Same goal this week!
My goals came to a halt quickly when the shingles showed up. but, I am healing now and as soon as my eyes are better, I am going to try to get some of the things done that I have listed before. Love seeing all of the projects that everyone is finishing.
I'm almost finished with the sashing and post assembly for my log cabin. We're supposed to have a rainy, cold weekend which means my work load (all the yardwork) is easier, so I'm hoping to start the putting the quilt top together. I should be able to carve out some extra time. Yep, like those rainy weekends.
My goal for this week was to get a lot of hand applique done on DGD's quilt. I usually do that in the evenings. My evenings this week were much busier than usual so I didn't get much applique done. However, my days weren't as busy as expected so I got some other sewing related things done. My box of kid fabrics has been sorted and some of it cut into most-often-used size strips. I have several blocks almost done for Sunshine Quilters. I made one more of the self-binding receiving blankets. And I prepared the backing and batting for a queen-size quilt to take to the long-armer next week.
New goals: continue with the hand applique; take quilt to long-armer (it is an hour's drive each way); mail two QOV tops to be quilted; finish Sunshine Quilters blocks and mail them. That doesn't sound like much actual sewing but it is probably all I'll have time for.This message has been edited. Last edited by: pvillelou,
My grandson will be going home to Memphis on Sunday. I have 3 prom dresses to hem and one to hem and adjust the straps. The hemming is too bad just time consuming but the straps are more difficult. I have until April 12 to get them done but I want to thoroughly clean and re-organize my sewing room in April.

Hi Wiley, My space was clean at the start of last week, but chaos happened in the past 2 days. Somehow.
I started cutting fabrics for Dad's quilt and arranging on the design wall. Decided to switch the accent fabrics which frame some of the blocks. Still didn't like it. Removed all the fabrics. Changed the design wall's construction (paint, saw, drill, nails, screws). Replaced the fabrics and decided to try yet a third accent color. So this week's goal is to make that decision and then sew at least 5 seams to start this quilt.
Well I got my quilt off of my quilt frame and the binding sewed on one side. I still have to work on my DS quilt. and I want to do a quilt for my DSIL we were just told that she has brest Cancer. They are going after it very agressively. She can use all the T's & P's she can get. Thanks.

I did get my tote bag done last week and posted a picture on stashbusters thread.
My goals this week (since the week is half gone) are to get the quilt top that fell apart taken all the way apart. Plan on using some of the blocks to make my babydoll quilts for Mrs. Claus. Also would like to sort more of the patterns for Sylvia quilt.
