With half the year over (how did that happen?) it starts to become not only a monthly goals setting, but setting things into perspective thru to the end of the year. Personally, I like November and December to be as stress free as possible so it takes planning to get all my ducks in a row to acheive that.
I like this one on my list too. Another new project and finishing up something old is a good mix.
My Something Old will be to quilt/finish this wallhanging that I did as part of my LQS Super Bowl Sunday quilt along mystery back in February.
My Something New will be to start this. I think I am just going to do one block (they are 22") for a nice wallhanging. I would love to make a large quilt set 3 x 3 blocks, but time doesn't allow right now - it will be a good project for those snowed-in months.
I have been enjoying visiting my books, patterns, filed away printouts with this. And participants have been doing some lovely pieces from some wonderful resources - some I have sitting on my shelf getting dusty, so great reminders.
My Vet has been asking me for a dog mini quilt for a few years now. She has one of my kitty minis (for the new building dedication) and it was a tribute to my old cat - she was his Vet. So I am going to modify this cover quilt - no Santa hats - and finally fullfill that request.
I will be combining my Handmade Christmas project with the Simply Small project again this month.
The RSC14 color for July is RED and I have added a lot of scrap reds into that never empty basket.
The Moda Trifle Cake sew along will be showcasing finished tops July 7th. My flimsy is ready, photo'ed, and actually will be handed off to my long armer (it is HUGE) this Thursday.
And I have to start thinking of which quilt and which kitty to use for a photo shoot for the upcoming Pets on Quilts Show in August. It may take me all month to get one or the other furry to cooperate this year. July is a great month for outdoor photo's - so get yours done early so you're ready come link up.
I have to start planning for a quilt show in September, local promotion of our county Quilt Barn Trail with an 'Airing of the Quilts' in September, and another quilt show in October (our quild show). Getting my ducks in a row now will make for less stress as those dates approach.
AND I haven't had a burger or hot dog on the grill yet!! Gotta take care of that...............
