So, it’s been an emotional week in my world. Lots of things going on that are a bit more private than I care to post about publicly, but I can say that God is definitely using those circumstances to stretch and grow me. 🙂 But through all that, I have had an incredible group of ladies checking in and encouraging me to continue to move forward with my goals.
I figured I would also post this coming week’s goals as well at the bottom! Saves a post and all.
Okay, so here’s my weekly wrap-up from my list of goals from LAST Sunday!
~Lay out and sew Andrea’s quilt top – Laid it out! 3/4 of the squares are joined together in various pairs/strings of panels!
~Women’s Christmas Dinner place mats (10) – Updated to only needing 8! Which is good, because I kind of screwed up on 2 of the ones I made, and only have 9, so this worked out beautifully. Anyway, I got them all quilted and trimmed. Just needing to bind them!
~Women’s Christmas Dinner quilt – Pushed back to next week. Less than a month to go, so gotta get crackin’ on this!
~Organize Fabric –This may not happen until…February. I have ambitious goals, but I have to assess what I am realistically able to accomplish. Right now, we are 45 days away from Christmas, and there are a few things that are more important than a pretty stash.
~ Two boxy pouches for someone who got married yesterday (no pictures available – I seriously finished them and ran out the door to deliver)
~Clean house and purge more “stuff” – Well, I got rid of 3 bags of stuff – YAY! And I cleaned up my kitchen a little and did some laundry, so I’m calling this a win for the week.
~Women’s Christmas Dinner table setup work – Yeah….no….
~Meal Prep – Nope…didn’t get to this either…unless you consider making hard boiled eggs meal prep, and, well, I could have done better.
~At least 8,000 steps per day (would help if I charged my FitBit…) – Yup – would have helped if I had charged my FitBit. I didn’t charge it until Wednesday and I didn’t record at or over 8,000 steps on any given day that it was charged. Will definitely have to do better next week.
~Yoga x 4 – Okay, so I managed a couple of quick sessions (10 minutes each). Not nearly the length I prefer, but after the charlie horse I walked/ran through on the I Am Second 5k, I’ll call it a win that I can touch my toes without pain.
New Sewing Goals!
~Continue Andrea’s quilt
