New Year and New Goals

2017  Goals

I continue to learn as I float around the internet's blogs and sites,  I have seen several year end posts, new year's goals, and more.  I hope that by being more reflective as I blog and putting all my ideas/goals out, will increase my changes of accomplishing them. Indirectly, I am making you my readers, the incentive to make me be better accountable.  

So Monthly goals:

1) Stash Bee: I was able to join for the new year and am looking forward to following someone else's tutorial/ idea. Then in September, I get to reap the rewards, and ask for a block from my hive mates.
Here are the magical trees for January.

2) Complete the BOM of the month for my quilt guild. Here is the January block.

3) Complete a mini challenge for my mini group of friends: January's idea is circles, and I have posted on my bull's eye blocks from homespuns. In stages, 4 circles made, several 1/4 blocks done.

Quasi goals ( several weeks but in the 1st quarter of 2017)

4) Log Cabin Quilt Along: sponsored by Bea and Cecile in France.   16 blocks due by March.
I have selected a Kim Diehl pattern with a 9 patch center.  It has a beautiful applique border. Extra incentive : 2 chances at giveaways if it is done.  Here are my centers.
5)  Complete Bonnie Hunter's En Provence mystery. (Making a small version for now)
Latest clue completed.

Long term goals  UFOs 

Those projects I was once drawn to and began, but were sidelined for others.  Still interested in finishing:  yes!
All People Quilt UFO goal. Objective to get headway on the accumulating projects. Several have to be done : my sister's present, and my 30s hearts for our guild show. Making the list to post.
Here is the link for the document to fill out:

And I know I will have others fun things I want to do: right now: some mug rugs for my mom and mother in law for January as well as to make a project with Valentine fabrics I have had for a couple years. 

So here I go. Hope you ready for the new year, and getting started on your goals as well.

Goals not related to quilting

A) Exercise:  Hopefully early A.M. before getting ready for work: thinking yoga for now.

B) Spiritual: I need to do some study and devotions. I don't have specifics for this area yet.....
