June ( ackkk) : One Monthly Goal

I was thinking in my head last week, that I really needed to sit down and decide my June One Monthly Goal - and then Bam! June was here - and I hadn't decided.  The indecision - oh my!!

I ( unlike any other quilter ha ha!)  want to do it all, and finish it all in a day - and look amazing while doing it.... but alas - I have narrowed my goal.....

I toughened up - I made a decision - and NO! I was not influenced by the fact that this project is actually on my design wall - so it would be ludicrous to remove it ( right???)

here it is:



This!  I have enough blocks for another quilt too - so since I didn't make the blocks - I am expanding my goals - Piece this top , add borders, piece the other, add borders.... MAKE A BACKING - and..... If I really want a reward - Quilt them..... I am going for it folks - keep your fingers crossed, and send me well wishes.


Did I tell you that June is one of *the* craziest months for us this year??  Seriously - I am missing those days when the kids were younger and our big goal for the day was to get chores done and play in the pool....

ah well - It;s all good....

June's One Monthly Goal

And your monthly goal (those are my alma mater colors) reminds me that I have a bin of Texas Aggie fabric waiting to become a quilt. I love Irish Chain quilts. You can do this!

Our only lives out of state and my husband was gone with a friend Saturday until around 5:45. I had my blocks pieces but I added sashing and borders and put the rows together on Saturday. It's amazing what can be accomplished with no interruptions! I even managed to do a bit of laundry! Good luck on your lofty goals!

Good luck with your monthly goal -- May is our crazy month so June seems a bit more manageable here.

You have been a busy girl the past 2 weeks (sorry, I'm playing blog reading catch up).

Enjoy the kids while they're home and busy. Time flies and before you know it they're all grown up! Plus...It's good to have goals! :)
