Goals for the next 4 days!!!!!

I am setting a GOAL for the next 4 days!!! I would love to start the New Year out right and I have already listed some of my goals for 2008 in my sidebar, but I have a few projects that I would love to finish up by Tuesday! Here's my list.

~ FRIENDSHIP BASKETS ~ I need to finish the setting triangles and add a border.

~ COWBOY BOOTS AND HATS ~ All I need to do on this is add the last border and it will be ready to quilt.

~ MONTH-BY-MONTH SAMPLER ~ This one also just needs a border added and it will be ready to quilt.

~ THIMBLEBERRIES VILLAGE SAMPLER ~ Finish the last 3 blocks and sew the top together.

Now many of you know that this last one, Thimbleberries Village Sampler, is the top that I started several months ago, and hate it! Well, I don't know if you would say HATE, but just something about it I just can't bring myself to finish those last 3 blocks! I don't have border fabric for this one, but I will pick up some after the first of the year. So I think that would be a great way to start out the New Year. I would be sooooooo happy to just get that Village Sampler top out of the way!

If all works out well in the morning, I would love to start working on these tomorrow afternoon!

I posted this post a few hours ago and I think I am off to a good start on my goals!!! I cut the borders for my COWBOY QUILT and my MONTH-BY-MONTH SAMPLER. Oh, and I also cut the binding to put with the tops, so that will be ready when I need them. And something else that I did that was NOT on my list, I made Hunter a Ninja Turtle pillowcase. I will post a photo of it tomorrow because I still need to make Andrew's pillowcase. Andrew's, of course, will be of a different fabric than Hunters.

My son went through the TMNT phase too. They are one thing that remain a classic, and so I won't let him get rid of them. He even has the pizza throwing vehicle.

My goal fo rthe next few days is to organise my scraps box. I promised the family that I wouldn't do any sewing until after New Years day, but that doesn't mean i can't hide away and do a pile of cutting.

You are really moving right along. You've inspired me and my goal for today is to start my YBR quilt out of the Holly Jolly flannel I got for Christmas.

Wow, you really whipped through that list quickly!
