This is a recap of my goals for September in the List Goals, Link Blog - Party.
1.) Test a pattern Starlight Wishes for my blog friend Joanne.
This is my completed Starlight Wishes. I just love how this came out. Thanks so much to Joanne for letting me test out your pattern. It is ready for purchase at her Craftsy store here. Here is a post she did with some different color options - a truly versatile quilt pattern.
2.) Applique the last Century Quilt block and put the top together.
I'm happy to say the last appliqué block is done. I hope to put this top together next month.
3.) Continue my RSC blocks in the color chosen for September.
All completed - a 16 patch block, 13 hexagon flowers and 12 churn dash blocks in orange.
I also made the RSC Sampler blocks for the month in orange.
4.) Tiny Tuesday blocks from the Civil War Diary quilt.
I got a few done this month. I plan to catch up a bit next month.
5.) Step 3 and/or 4 of the Celtic Solstice Mystery.
Step 4 - 120 four patches in orange and green are completed.
6.) Walk every morning M-F for 30-60 minutes after dropping the kids to school.
I did pretty good two of the four weeks. One week I was sick and had a sick kid home a little. This week - I stubbed my toe very badly on Monday afternoon and have been trying to stay off it for a couple of days. It is the first time I have had a toe actually turn purple from a bruise with swelling on the little toe. I'd say the corner of the coffee table won that round! Much better by the end of the week and I was able to bowl yesterday morning.
Goals for October.....
1. Finish the Maple Leaf UFO - top is done and batting is cut. Needs Quilting.
2. Finish the Snails Trail Rainbow quilt - top is done and batting is cut. Needs Quilting.
3. Continue the RSC Challenge in color selected for October. If black or grey I want to make mice to go around my teal cat blocks.
4. Tiny Tuesday blocks - I'm going to shoot for one a day the month of October. Wish me luck on this one.
5. Step 3 and Step 5 of Celtic Solstice so I can start making those blocks and get the top completed before the next mystery starts the end of November.
6. Get the Century Quilt into a top stage.
7. Applique the second December block for a pillow.
8. Start hand quilting the Hugs and Kisses Quilt after I finish putting the borders on.
9. Make two pillowcases as requested by my daughter for birthday present gifts for friends. One this Saturday and on the 11th of October for parties.
10. Steam clean the living room carpet - boy does it need it!
11. Continue walking in the mornings - especially now that it is a glorious temp in the mornings - high 60's and I love it!
I'm linking up with Kathi over at KCDesigns on Friday and Angela at SoScrappy on Saturday for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I really hope to have a Slow Stitching Sunday post with the Hugs and Kisses quilt ready for hand quilting... but we'll see how the next two days go!
It is calling for rain today and tomorrow but I hope to run some errands and pull some weeds this morning. Tomorrow Greg is busy with Aidan for scouts (archery in the morning and selling popcorn in front of Publix in the afternoon) and I get to do a birthday party with Emily in the afternoon for a new friend from school. Oh shoot - must sew his patches onto his uniform today too!
Have a wonderful weekend.
