October Goals a Little Late

I’ve been a poor blogger these past weeks. Having too much fun I guess. Haven’t been reading any blogs either. That’s unusual for me.

So here is what I accomplished in September against my four goals:

1. Finish the center of Lazy Sunday. (Not committing to the border) DONE

2. Finish hand sewing binding on Monster Bash. DONE

3. Cut and prep fabrics for Shipshewana. DONE and packed 

4. Quilt one more UFO that is waiting to be quilted.  Not done. I’ve been knitting instead.

In addition, I finished sewing the binding down on my Christmas Mystery that has been a UFO for a very long time. Not the oldest I have, but close.

What have I been doing instead of quilting? Knitting.

  • I finished the knitting on my Swirl jacket and blocked it. Now I have to sew the one long seam to finish it.
  • I started knitting on fingerless mitt’s for Sloane for Christmas.
  • I tried knitting a sock from patterns on the Internet. But failed in sizing. So I attended a class at Nine Rubies on 9/30 and got some great help. Eventually I’ll try socks again.

So now on to goals for October before it’s half over.

1. Finish my Swirl jacket (Knitting).

2. Make Alaska Wall Hanging at Ships.

3. Make Crossroads top at Ships.

4. Quilt my Asian Sampler top. October’s UFO.

The first three are slam dunks, but number 4 will be a challenge to get that far this month.


  1. Karen, I lve the fabric color tones you chose for Lazy Sunday. Yours looks much more refined than mine. I wasn’t loving the borders on it, but when I laid them out next to the center I found that I liked the green border turned in, better than the way the directions call for it.

    I’m working to finish up the remaining outer purple border today, in fact. Hoping to be able to take the finished top to share at our guild meting tonight. Just thinking ahead…All these pieced edges are going to be a beast to load on the long arm!


    • I’m working on piecing the purple border pieces then I’m going to put in on the design wall and see what I think. I’m not crazy about the border either but who knows what it will really look like.

      Can’t wait to see a pic of your top finished.


  2. Monster bash looks great! (The others do too.) You are ahead of me for retreat – finishing a show quilt before I can prep any more for NEXT weekend – yikes – better go quilt instead of fooling around!
