Get It Done - January Results & February Goals

Well, how did I do on my January list of GID goals?   In spite of being out of commission for 2 weeks with a bug, I didn't do too bad.

Here's what I wanted to get done in Jan.
1. Cut sashing and cornerstones for Joan's Stars - didn't get it done
2. Complete Step 7 and Step 8 on Easy Street - made progress, but still need some of both Blocks A (5) & Block B (3) - I did a lot of sewing on this project since I was behind and was playing catch-up.
3. Make 10 string blocks to add to my 70 - finished 5
4. Quilt one QOV quilt - YES, I finished it and even got it bound!  You can see it HERE.

Not a very good showing, huh? but maybe February will be better -- I've got to stay healthy!!

In February my GID goals will be:
1.  Finish blocks for Easy Street and put together the top (UFO).  Picture HERE
2.  Finish binding another QOV (UFO)
3.  Make a set of pillowcases for a gift
4.  Get the Edyta Sitar's Botanical Beauty block all prepped to start appliqueing. Pattern HERE.
5.  Cut sashing & cornerstones for Joan's stars - (UFO)

I do think this challenge has helped me focus on specific projects instead of jumping around from project to project so much.

Stop on by Patchwork Times to see what others have done this month.  I'm also linking up with Carrie at A Passion for Applique for finishing up my UFOs.


  1. Don't be so hard on yourself. We still have lives to live so it's not as if you did nothing else and I think you made wonderful progress. Let's hope the next time you don't have time to sew, it's not because you are ill! Happy you're feeling better!

  2. Great job in January considering you were sick for two weeks! I'm also slowly making my way down Easy Street.

  3. I agree that listing my goals has kept me more focused than I would have been without Judy's challenge.

  4. I haven't even tried to set goals, but you make me realize that at least keeping track of what I've done will help me stay focused. My problem is too many interests and too many hobbies.

  5. You have done fantastic! Especially with being sick for most of January!

  6. I think you've done a great job on your goals, especially considering you were sick! I know a lot of others who have been less productive than they hoped because of sickness too. I found that the list really helped me to stay focused too - I'm liking it!
