I am linking with Elm Street Quilts for her One Monthly Goal Completion tally. The Come To Jesus in the quilting world. I think it really helped me, because i would have continued to put off binding that Santa quilt, like I have for the last 11 years.
You know, the other day I found out that Patty of Elm Street Quilts does not live on Elm Street. Hmmmmm.
Also I realized that if you are going to be a quilter of any note you need to be named either Patty or Julie. Isn't that weird? There sure are a lot of Pattys and Julies out there in the quilting world. But just how many quilters do you know named glenda? Or glen?
Not many, which is one reason I have always hated my name. I should have stuck with the nickname my brother gave me, Sissy. But I don't really see myself as a Sissy. Or the one my father always called me, gaggie. No, not like gagging, but more like gog. Or grog. You know, I do miss hearing that. Only two people ever called me gaggie, and I miss both of them. Diane lives a couple of cities over in Covington. And I don't get to see her often, but when I do, she always calls me gaggie!
But I digress.....Finishes.........
I projected four goals.......and I finished all of them.
1. Bind Santa - Done
2. Quilt at least one quilt - done (and I quilted two actually for extra brownie points! I should win something just for that). Next month my goals should be to bind these guys.
I did quilt the Improv Strpes but I must have put that photo somewhere really safe because I cannot find it in my quilt photo anywhere. So you need to just take my word on this one.
Or go here and check out for yourself.
I do have the Triangle Quilt to show, front and back. Make it larger by clicking on them.
3. Quilt for the Naval Cadet Ball is finished and delivered for the Big Raffle!
4. Do some embroidery on the One Road Thru Town for the CFAL Journeys Show in 2018. I still can't believe I am so far ahead of having a piece ready! Usually I am sitting in the venue while everyone is hanging stuff and working feverishly to get the piece finished!
Like I said, I should win.........because I went above and beyond and quilted that extra quilt in there.....Patty, you listening?
