Weekly Goals – 1/31/18

I am a little late in posting this week’s goals. I wanted to do this Sunday but I was busy sewing and I figured working on goals trumped writing them – or does it? I honestly have no idea. And yesterday – well, I hate Mondays!

Regardless, let’s look at last week’s goals:

  • Finish Gold Scarf – DONE & posted here.
  • Decide on borders for Peters Penguins – decided no borders and to bind in red.
  • Decide & complete back for Peter’s Penguins – DONE will show in finishes post.
  • Create status papers for all UFOs – DONE
  • Look at February planner – well sort of. I decided my current planner wasn’t working for me. I ordered supplies for Bullet Journaling and will post about that soon.

Now for this week’s list:

  • Fix Frannie’s Faux Pas – I am going to fix my daughter’s jeans!
  • Layer Groovy Pluses
  • Make Granola Bars – I found a recipe I really want to try on Pinterest (1 recipe – many variations)
  • Finish tying Fredly – this quilt is ridiculously close to finishing)
  • Make outline for #bujo (bullet journal)
  • Hem Gray Gary – another piece ridiculously close to finishing
  • Start quilting Groovy Pluses (see above picture)

Some items on this are time-consuming and some aren’t – some can be done while binge watching Netflix (I have a new favorite show), some can’t. I try to keep a variety of items going.

I have a busy schedule next weekend so this list might have some carryover into next week; we’ll see.


Weekly Goals

My plan is to post about my weekly goals on Sundays – more for my benefit than for anything. I have always found I do very well when I make a list. I have piles and piles of notebooks, papers, and post-its full of lists. I have just recently been thinking about combining them all into a Bullet Journal (but that’s a post for another day).

For now, here are my goals for this upcoming week:

  • Finish the Gold Scarf (maybe 2-4 hours while binge-watching Life in Pieces on Netflix)
  • Decide on borders for Peter’s Penguins & put on (this could be completed Tuesday as this is the day I work from home – depending on how much work I have to do). Here are my choices: I am really leaning toward NO borders and simply bin it in red. I would love some opinions on this!
  • Decide on & complete back for Peter’s Penguins
  • Create status papers for each project – I found these great Free Printables at HelloMellyDesigns and I want to cut it up and put a section in each of my project boxes – or use it in my planner (decisions!)
  • Look at February planner (what didn’t work for January) – maybe purchase things for Bullet Journal???

I think this is good for my week…wait the week includes next Saturday, and since I’m not sure if we have plans or not I better include something to do just in case we don’t…

  • Layer & start quilting Groovy Pluses (this baby is huge and requires TIME & a million pins – and maybe spray basting as well)

Ok now I feel like I have plenty to report back on Saturday evening – I am off to prep for work for the week and be lazy – today’s To Do – Laziness!

Don’t forget to give your opinion on borders for Peter’s Penguins!!!
