July OMG 2017 Goal

The UFO goal for July was announced by Judy, at Patchwork Times.

This month, the #12 was chosen.  My #12 is the blocks that quilt guild members made for me when I served as the guild president.

President's Blocks

I served as President of the Colville Piecemakers Quilt Guild 1999-2001.  I have thirty six signed blocks given to me when my term was up.

My goal for this month is to come up with a plan to put these blocks together.  I don’t expect to get beyond the planning stage, since summer is a busy time, but having a plan is good progress.

June OMG 2017 Goal Update

My June goal for the OMG and Patchwork Times challenges, was to work on an old birdhouse wall hanging project.

One Monthly Goal - Bird House

I’ve done absolutely nothing to it.

I do have ideas, and I want to work on it.  I really do.

But June turned out to be a very busy month.

I am painting an upstairs bedroom.

And the bathroom.

Painting Bathroom

Both rooms will be a very soft gray, and much lighter than they were before.  I hate house painting, but the results are worth it!

Progress is slow, since I am fitting the painting in between work shifts and the usual life stuff.

I took a trip to Alaska at the beginning of this month.  What a lot of fun!  I’d like to do it again!

I have literally hundreds of photos to sort through.  I’d like to make a photo memory book for myself.  This is going to take some time!

I thought I’d share a few photos with you.  These are from the flight to Alaska:

I’ll share more when I get them edited.

June OMG 2017 Goal

Judy, at Patchwork Times, announced #7 as the UFO goal for June.  It is fun to link up and see what other’s are doing!  It is also encouraging!

My UFO/OMG #7 is an old birdhouse project.  You can see how excited I was to finish it.  Ha, ha!

One Monthly Goal - Bird House

I don’t have a lot of time to sew this month, since I do have a trip planned. I also want to be outside in the garden.

I will be happy to just come up with a plan and get something going.  Once I start, I will get motivated to keep going.

I think.

May OMG 2017 Goal

Judy, at Patchwork Times, announced #11 as the UFO goal for May.

My number 11 is a Hunter’s Star quilt.

Hunter's Star Quilt Top

This quilt was begun as an Inklingo project in 2013.

You can see close-ups of the kaleidoscope stars in a blog post about this quilt here.

My goal for May is to get this Hunter’s Star quilt top pin-basted and quilted. But first, I have to find it somewhere in the sewing studio.

I am linking up with OMG at Elm Street Quilts and Patchwork Times. While there, I will see what others are up to for May.
