2016 GOALS

I like to make lists and take sewing challenges 
Both keep me motivated and I have good results.

The first challenge that caught my eye
allow any kinda UFO to be done...
all or part...such as just make a top, but not quilt it

Participants use the #apqresolution hash tag on IG (Instagram)
whenever they post a pic of one of the UFOs


There was print out to list 12 UFOs - one for each month
I included some quilting, knitting, and card making 

Now remember this is a specific list...but I am also
working on other projects NOT on this list!


On the first day of the month All People Quilt
draw a number at random...that is the month
in you list and work on that UFO


February was a Halloween Quilt with 
"Too Cute To Spook" fabrics by Riley Blake

I will post about the UFOs as I work them up!


The next challenge was familiar as I did this for 2015...
#sewmaystash2016 on IG



Actually both challenges go hand in hand for a win-win!
 I can circle the wagons for two more wins when
I use some of the projects for the
Nationwide Plaza Quilters and Columbus Modern Quilters
2016 UFO challenges




I also made a list of 2016 vacations...
 January - Florida with the girls (check)
February - Florida with hubby (check)
 June - North Carolina Mountains with hubby (maybe)
August - Maine (BUCKET LIST) with hubby (maybe)
Sept/Oct - Myrtle Beach, SC  to visit my son (check)
...ahhh the beauty of being retired

So tell me...are you in any challenges?

  1. I hope you are very successful with your goals this year. The vacations sound amazing! I'm not in any of the challenges but certainly need to be. Congrats on retiring. I've been retired for many years now and have loved every minute!
