Well, I finally did SEW yesterday! I completed half the flying geese for Clue 5. Today I'll press them and finished up with Clue 5. Clue 6 is cut and ready to sew. Clue 7 is ready to sew. I'm so glad the cutting is over!!! I didn't have any Accuquilt dies that would work for this quilt - all cut by rotary cutter. Whew! If I'm going to keep making Bonnie Hunter mystery quilts, I think I might need to invest in a 2" strip die...
Now I think I'd like to reflect on the year and see how I did with my personal goals.
I did finish En Provence (Ain't No Sunshine), Gardenvale, and I'm a Farmer's Daughter. I completed a total of 12 quilting/sewing projects including 7 large quilts, 3 small quilts, and 2 dresses. I didn't do everything on the list, but I did add some other projects. I'm satisfied.
2. Keep swimming and hiking.
I did well on this at the beginning of the year, but slacked off later. Should have done better.
3. Take better care of my skin.
I passed this one with flying colors. Rodan and Fields products have done wonders for my skin!
4. Read more. I'm going to set a doable goal - read 12 books during the year. I should be able to do that!
I passed this one with flying colors, also. I read 29 books!!!! Yippee! Yes, I'm happy about this!
Overall, I think I did pretty well. I've really enjoyed keeping count of the quits/projects I've finished and the books I've read. Tomorrow I'll begin with a clean slate. I have one quilt (New Bedford) that is essentially done, but I haven't hand stitched the binding. I guess I'll get to count that as 2018 finish.
So tomorrow I'll list my goals for 2018. I may do things a bit differently as far as quilting goes.
Thanks to you all for joining me here this past year! Happy New Year!
