Its a Saterday, time to start a new week

Well nothing much has happened over the past week. Been thinking a lot and sometimes it comes down to, what I need to do, what I have to do and what I have done.

Not much done, Have a lot I need to do and have a lot I have to get done.

I did get 2 blocks done for my Mom's quilt, however, I put the blocks together all wrong. :P lol
It is what happens when you do not have the original block set up by the machine so you have a reference.

Dang it, I need to find my camera again.

Discouragement this week has been profound for me. Making stupid mistakes, not sorting fabric correctly and putting into the correct bins, attempting to cut some fabric and find out 1) its not the correct one, and 2) cut it out all wrong. Bad Tammy, lol.

Oh well time to slow down, take it easy and put everything back into perspective. Hopefully within the next few days I will have improvements to post about. :D

Like getting fabric sorted and put into the correct bins, like cutting out and putting blocks together CORRECTLY..

What have you all been doing this past week? Sewing, crocheting, knitting, hiking, biking, staying warm for my northern friends, walking, jogging, etc??

Until next time

Goals for 2014

I'm a little late in doing this, but have decided I need to get my rear in gear and attempt to get things done.

1) Finish up Easy Street, all it needs is the backing, batting and to be quilted.

2) Finish up the Jacob Ladder's quilt that I am doing for my mom. Have 5 blocks done, need to finish up putting the blocks together, backing, batting and get it quilted.

3) Finish crocheting my daughters blanket for her king size bed. She has been waiting on this for over 10 yrs, about time to get'er done. Have it just about 3/4 of the way done. I'm really sorry it has taken so long Dawn.

4) I have about 3-5 circle of comfort quilts to finish. I also need to get active at the Missouri Star forum again. 1 of the quilts just needs a binding put on, 1 needs a backing, the others I need to finish putting together. These were to go to West, Texas to comfort those most impacted by the fertilizer plant blast. 

5) Begin blogging more, at least once a week with updates and things that are going on.

6) Work on my cousin's quits, Evonda's and Charlie's. Charlie's needs the binding put on it. I have blocks to finish putting together for Evonda's.

 This is a part of Evonda's quilt.

 Charlie's lap quilt. All Roads Lead to Home.

7) work on my Grandson's quilt.

8) Begin working on putting together a triple Irish Chain quilt ( something similar to this quilt) for my daughter Dawn. Getting fabric together

9) Begin working on my daughters Cathy and Tracy's quilts. Still getting fabric put together to do these. Farmer's Granddaughters 
It is the variations of The Farmer's Daughter quilt blocks.

10) Finish crocheting Tracy's shawl. I started this a month before she was to be married, 2 yrs ago, it still isn't finished. So sorry Tracy.

11) I have 3-5 items that are really close to be finished, crocheting edgings around the outside perimeters, or putting bindings on. Need to take time to get them finished.

And that is just the start of it all. First up getting everything reorganized, which I will be working on today. Almost finished with this part, just cleaning off my work surfaces.

And who knows, I may be able to get Celtic Solstice started also.

So Until next time. :D
