December OMG 2018 Goal Update

It is time to be accountable and declare what I accomplished with my December OMG (One Monthly Goal).

Because of Christmas and the e-commerce explosion (I work at a post office), I kept my goal light…I really did not expect to accomplish much.  I thought I just might have time to machine quilt half of The Case of the Secret Garden (a Linda Franz/Inklingo mystery from 2013).

But I put my nose to the grindstone, and quilted at every opportunity that I could, and I am so happy to report a finish!

If you click on the link above, you can find links to the beginning of this project, and each clue that I worked on it, as well as find where it originated on Linda Franz’ website, Inklingo.  

Some of the pictures aren’t that great (it is hard to take good pics indoors in the midst of winter), but they show that I finished this baby!

  5. Lovely. This “case” came up about the time I started following Inklingo, so I know you have worked on it for a while. Lots of time for sore fingers. I was going to ask if you used a DSM, but you answered that question. I have lots of Inklingo starts, but can’t claim any finishes at this time.
