I'm feeling better physically and maybe I'll get to work on a few things before we head out for the New Years Eve showing of "Rogue One" we had planned to do before typhoid hit the house! It'll definitely be a lot less than I had hoped to get done as the year finished up.
So time to wrap up the last "Get It Done" of the year. From the December Goals List, the only things I did get to:
1. Fall Decorating Projects: If I find a new ribbon (or decide on a plan) for the treat jar, I will work on that. I'll also at minimum die cut the pumpkin and circle appliques for the long pillow and finalize the background to complete a "kit" for future finishing. I also have a set of plain pillow covers that I want to whip up so those are at the ready when next Fall rolls around.
5. Labels Update: Finish all outstanding labels (seven and one update label) and now I have an "official" cause: to honor taking the Quilt Alliance Labelling Pledge.
6. Finish Wool Ornaments: And hopefully get them on the tree this year!
I started working on the three remaining mitten ornaments and got the motifs for one cut out and two more traced (with one using an alternate design) before nursing duties and illness interrupted.
Everything else on the goals list (Slow Sunday Stitching: QAYG blocks, QOV #1 and #2, Autumn Double Wedding Ring, Husband and Wife Gift Quilts, Baby Quilt, Graduation Quilt and using a Scrappy Trips project as a "Leader/Ender") weren't touched. I do have to run to the store and we're not headed to the movies until much later so maybe I can try to set up for a "Slow Sunday Stitching" session tomorrow.
Here's hoping your quilting year ended well and you are looking forward to ringing in a New Year full of fun projects and finishes!!
P.S. For those of you looking to Quilt-A-Thon in 2017, Judy Laquidara over at Patchwork Times is reviving her monthly Quilt-A-Thons. See the schedule she's posted for the year here (and on her sidebar) and tips for getting set up for the first one here.
