What will you challenge yourself with this week?

I don’t want you to be stressed out about this challenge, but I do hope to MOTIVATE you. Finish something, start something, just don’t be overwhelmed by everything – One Thing!

You decide, what’s reasonable for you to get done in a weeks time, and tell me your goal in the comments. Next Monday, I will have a linky and you can link to your blog/flickr post, and show off your met goal!


My goal for this week is to catch up and ship off bee blocks for the ladies in The Bees Knees, quilting bee.

I’m three months behind; but not for much longer!


For those of you that meet your goal, you will be entered to win a copy of 100 Pretty Little Projects : This book from Lark Books is FULL of fun projects, great projects, with simple instructions that would be fun to do with the kids, or give as gifts for the holidays. 
 If you haven’t check it out yet, you should! 100 Pretty Little Projects is a great addition to your library.

    My goal is to assemble the top of my first Halloween quilt. This is a charity project.Most of the blocks are completed, and it seems like a reasonable goal to put everything together by the end of the week. The progress can be followed on my blog.

    I am on vacation this week, a staycation if you will. I am planning some major sewing. Probably too ambitious, but I have lots to do. For this challenge, I am going to quilt a baby quilt and a Bee quilt this week. I really need these two to get done. There are two more waiting in the wings for quilting.

    I’m working on the Up a Notch quilt from Fresh Lemons right now. I’ve got all of the subunits of the blocks pieced and pressed, and my goal is to get the top all stitched up this week, and add a border. It’s for my mom, and I’m going to visit her in September, so I need to get this sucker done before my trip!

    I have some fabrics with daisies on them that have been in my stash for years. I never could figure out what to do with them. Now I have finally chosen a pattern and other fabrics to go with the floral prints. So this week my goal is to piece the blocks for a lap quilt and finally use these fabrics.

    I hope to finish my art quilt for our guild show…I ended up doing a lot of ripping/picking out thread and redoing the stitching….came up with a better idea to create the thread painting and, although it is taking me twice as long, I am much happier with the results!!
