Getting It Done--November/December 2013

It is time to post my last set of goals for the Get It Done Challenge that Judy has been hosting. Even if she decides not to continue the challenge next year, I may keep posting my own quilting goals for each month. Posting these lists has made a big difference in keeping me focused on my current projects, rather than starting a million new ones and never completing any.

November goals:
1.  Dancing Stars--make a set of blocks in this month's color (brown) for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  12 blocks made

2.  Scrappy Sampler BOM--make this month's set of blocks. Blocks made for both November & December! 

3.  Scrap Hexies--continue my hexie hand stitching project. One brown hexie snowflake done, hexie star and 2nd snowflake in progress

4.  Finish at least one Christmas gift. One set of placemats finished, plus the tops for 2 more sets made.

5.  Finish Easy Street top. Didn't even pull it out!

December goals:
1.  Dancing Stars--join blocks into quilt top.

2.  Scrappy Sampler BOM--join all the 10" blocks to the center of the quilt; continue making bowties for the borders. 

3.  Scrap Hexies--continue my hexie hand stitching project.

4.  Finish 3 sets of placemats for Christmas gifts.

5?  Maybe start Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice mystery--I still haven't decided if I am going to do this one or not.

See how well other quilters did at reaching their goals this month and what they hope to accomplish in the month ahead at Patchwork Times.

  1. You had a great November. This is the first year that I've tried monthly goals and it really has helped me focus on what to get done. Like you, I'll probably continue writing up monthly goals next year.

  2. Great work on your goals! Yes, they really help me. Hope I can get everything done I put off till December!

  3. Listing does make a difference. I don't want to be totally embarrassed when I accomplish nothing!~ :) I usually do start other projects that were not on my goal list, but at least it does keep me somewhat focused. I am doing Bonnie's mystery again and hope to finish Easy Street this year too.

  4. You had a good month! Thankfully, Judy is continuing, because I also like to see what others are up to. Your December goals look great, too!
