Goal Update! and Goal Post – 2

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!

Sewing Goals

~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!

Obviously I needed a quilt helper.

~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!

The snowmen are the back of the placemats! Aren't they adorable?!

~Women’s Christmas Dinner quilt – Pushed back to next week.  Less than a month to go, so gotta get crackin’ on this!

11.9.14 129
~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. 

*~* ADDED!*~*

~ Two boxy pouches for someone who got married yesterday (no pictures available – I seriously finished them and ran out the door to deliver)

Non-Sewing Goals

~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
~Finish binding the placemats for Women’s Christmas Dinner
~Quilt the quilt for Women’s Christmas Dinner
~Work on a project for a friend – quiet book

New Non-Sewing Goals!

~Get at least 8,000 steps per day (nope, not giving up on this one!)
~Continue to clean/organize to get ready for Christmas decorating
~Locate and procure a fireplace bucket and shovel to clean out fireplace.
~Clean out fireplace
~Yoga/Pilates 4x this week
~Women’s Christmas Dinner setup work
~Meal Prep (not looking good….just sayin’)

So, lofty goals again, but I think I’m up for it.  What are YOUR goals, sewing, crafty or otherwise, for this week?

Happy Creating!

  1. Great list! I’m working up to the 8,000 steps a day trying to get 5,000 this week (it’s not going too well). I’m like a great big blob of a sloth these days – too much time at the computer. Can’t wait to see you plow through your goals. Have a great week!
