I didn't work on even one of my goals for September:
- start planning Christmas postcards
- make a new hiking backpack
- quilt Mom's quilt
- possibly load my flower applique quilt to start quilting
Not one thing. But I got plenty done.
The only quilt I finished is this 4-patch veterans quilt. But I did get the center of Red Sunset done and I've started on the border blocks. I'm more focused on this project than any other project right now and I'm going to stick with it.
I did get 3 veterans quilts quilted and have 3 more to go. Then I want to quilt a quilt that Mom made. But first I have to reset the timing on my machine this week. I don't mind doing it but I never seem to do it right on the first try.
Where I made lots of progress was with crochet. That's logical since it's football season and I'm parked in front of the TV a lot this time of year. I finished a blanket for donation, 10 donation hats and a large blanket for my brother. I'm really close to finishing the summer sweater that I started a few months ago. I have a new sweater that I want to start to I'm motivated. I went through 13 balls of yarn in September.
My friend from London is visiting later this month so I'm going to try to be realistic about my goals for October (and November).
I want to:
- quilt 3 veterans quilts
- quilt Mom's quilt
- finish piecing Red Sunset
- start Christmas postcards
- plan a sample quilt for Paula Nadelstern that has a December 1 deadline
- no specific crochet goals, just do something productive while in front of the TV

Sometimes it is more fun to do things not on the list. They will still be there when they can become priorities.

Lists are like New Year's resolutions - made to be broken. That's my philosophy and I'm stickin' to it.

Not following the list happens to me, too, but sometimes it's just fun to do something else. However, I'm usually pondering something on my list while I'm working on something else. One project sparks another!

You might have not worked on your September goals, but you sure got a lot done! I had no intention to make a baby t-shirt quilt and quilt three vintage quilt tops over the last 2 months, but it happened! I am already thinking about what my next project is going to be and I haven't even started quilting that huge log cabin quilt! I say as long as you get something done you are doing great!
