One Monthly Goal & Tuesday To-Do's

When the weather outside is frightful, the 
sewing room time is even more delightful.
The cold months really get me creating,
this winter more so than ever.  While
"multi-project'ing" is not the norm for me
I seem to be going at it like a pro so
 I'm really trying to stay on top of them all.

For help with this, I'm making good use of my organizer
 where I write daily and monthly to-do lists and also keep
my Maker's Journal, which is available free here.
(Tip:  I print in reduced size to fit my organizer)

With so much going on, I thought I'd pick up
a little extra accountability on my latest project by
joining up One Monthly Goal and Tuesday To-Do's.

Monthly Goal
My goal for February?

To make another chandelier baby quilt--like the
one I made last summer for our granddaughter.

There are babies on the way among my friends
who I want to gift these to but I'd also like to get one
listed in my Etsy shop if possible so I really hope to get
several made.  I'm even cutting them all out at once but
the focus will be on just getting that first one completed.
Focus is what that I really need and crave, especially
in the midst of an abundance of projects, so this link-up
is going to be a little extra encouragement this month.

Here is my fabric pull so far but I'd like to get
another one or two in there if I can find it
among my stash.

Any thoughts on if these will work for both boy
and girl babies would be appreciated.

Weekly Goals
I'm also linking to the Tuesday To-Do's for some
weekly accountability.  This week I want to get
those quilts cut out.  

I also will be getting at least one of my 3 completed

quilt tops (see list below) quilted up and finished.

And, of course, I need to make at least #16 

and maybe #17 of the Farmer's Wife blocks.
(see above tab)

Other projects going:
Snow Love:  needs quilted
Irish Chain Picnic:  needs quilted, may add ants
to the top first?
Farmer In the Dell:  currently on LA frame
Black/white scarf:  current evening project, more info soon
HST Basket quilt:  constructing blocks, more info soon
 (need more background fabric)
Farmer's Wife Quilt:  On block 16, on-going project
Team scarf:  completed
Snow Day books (2):  completed

I'm excited to get these quilt tops quilted up
and to get that list cut down to half or less.
I've had my coffee and am feeling pretty determined.
There's even snow in the forecast for this afternoon.
My kind of creating day!
Here I go!

Happy quilting and knitting!

Hi Cheree! Thanks so much for joining us this week. Gosh, your chandelier baby quilt that you made for your granddaughter is just gorgeous. I want to reach right into the computer and bet it - I can SEE all the quilty squishy goodness. Your fabric pull is beautiful and I absolutely think it would work for a boy or girl. The two floral prints don't look overly in-your-face floral and they are balanced out nicely with the sailboats and x's. This is a great OMG project! Getting one of your quilt tops quilted sounds very doable for the week, plus a FW block. You've got some fun projects that are in the works or ongoing. Here's to a productive day and week. Thanks so much for linking up today! ~smile~ Roseanne

I'm tired just reading all you want to get done. But I have no doubts you'll get it all done. Love your fabric pull, with the florals I think it would work for a boy or girl. Looking forward to seeing all your finishes.

I love the colors you used in the Chandelier quilt for your grandbaby. The fabrics for the newest one make me think "boy", but I am sure it would be great for either sex.

Your Farmer's Wife blocks are beautiful.
Beautiful pattern, perfect for a babyquilt. Love this sailboat fabric!

I agree with joyful quilter that the fabrics fit both genders because of the florals. Those fabrics are absolutely gorgeous! I have been drooling over them!
