Wednesday check-in and Goals recap

As always it's been a hectic week. I managed quite a few days at home beginning on Wednesday, so productivity was way up.

Goals for the week of 11/6/16:

1.  Pajamas - DONE


These two are going to the oldest and youngest in one family.
A 5-yard piece of flannel can go pretty far. I still have the scraps to cut up for quilts.

2. Christmas Wall Hangings - All four are done + one




Number 5 is also a gift. Not sure I'll get one done for myself this year after all of these :)

I'm also going to miss my "display" fence. The growing season is over and we had a killing frost over the weekend.


The forecast for the coming weekend is accumulating snow. Gotta love lake-effect. I really don't mind. I love the changing seasons and the first snow is always something I enjoy.


3. UFO - Wendy's Christmas - no progress

4. Library Book - draw off pattern - no progress

5. Lace Cabin - no progress

And some bonus projects:



Appliqued dish towels for BF's birthday next year.


Felt fish for the three year olds at Bible study.

So it's been a week since I last posted. I just can't seem to get more in right now. Monday I worked with Honey Do on an inventory project. I like having a "non-job" job. I only work when he really needs something done and no one else to do it. 

Tuesday we noticed a huge decrease in separation anxiety for our three year olds. We had 12 little ones and no major issues. The morning goes really fast when there are that many. 

Wednesday is my stay-at-home day, except I didn't. I've been thinking for the last few months about a new hair cut and I finally did it I got four to six inches chopped off. Feels like 50 pounds !!! I do this every few years just because I get tired of it being long and want a different look. Hope I still like it tomorrow :)

Between chores, I'll work on my goal list. So here's my new list.

1. Christmas PJs - three more to do, get them done.

2. UFO - Wendy's Christmas table runner

3. Library Book - draw off pattern 

4. Lace Cabin 

I'm leaving the list here since I have three pairs of PJs to make. If I manage to get anything else done, which I probably won't, I'll consider it a bonus.

I'm off to empty the washer and get started on my list.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with countless blessings.

A good week last week, and I hope this week works out just as well. Love your wall hangings. I thought that 5th one was for you. I hope you get one made for yourself, as it is too cute! I think I'll make one in January. I know I'm not going to be doing much between now and then. I made two blocks this morning, first time in the quilt room since last Thursday. We haven't had that killing frost yet, but it's probably coming Sat. night. First, though, I get two days of 70s before the real fall arrives, very late this year. Your garden did well for a long time!
