Monthly Goals

January has come and gone on that cold Arctic wind. There have been quite a few weather challenges in the second half of the month. We are currently warmer with temperatures going into the 50s this week and thawing.


It's amazing what a difference 48 hours makes.

Here's how I'm ending the first month of 2019:

UFO Challenge 
#3 - Color Bear Quilt done
Hosted by Clever Chameleon
It just took me a couple of extra days, so it's actually a February finish.
- assemble last row done
- machine quilt done
- binding - I ended up with self binding. I like it.


I love the whole quilt, but these are two favorite blocks. Now I need to decide if I'm going to save it for a gift for one of the younger great nephews, or donate it to one of the deserving charities I'm going to start working with.

You weren't kidding when you said you caught up on the blog! LOL I love the picture at the end. Is that contemplating what you're doing, or contemplating where to start chewing? LOL It's a hard choice to decide what to do with the quilt. If you give it to your nephew and he doesn't take care of it, it would be heartbreaking. If you donate it, you'll never know if it's being taken care of. =) It's such a great quilt, I think I'd hang on to it for a while and just enjoy it before deciding.
