2018 Goals Recap and 2019 Planning Party

It’s time to take a moment and reflect.  On the year that is almost over, and the new year about to start.  Turning the page on the calendar is a monthly occurrence but going to a new year often means a new one.  A chance to make some new goals and exciting plans!

Recap of 2018

Yvonne at Quilting JETgirl hosted a 2018 Planning Party that we participated in.  Here is a short recap of our goals for 2018 along with an update on the goal.

2018 Goals

PHD Unwrapped

We joined Quilting Gail to complete a PHD (projects half done) certificate.  Unfortunately, we did not earn it but here is the list of our 12 UFOs that were all completed.

UFOs – All Wrapped Up

  1. Dr Seuss commission quilt all finished for Keri
  2. One of my favorites, Evening Star is all complete
  3. The second Animal Panel baby quilt has been enjoyed by GG and Dominic
  4. Quilt and bind Garden Gate 
  5. Quilt and bind Love Quilt for Valentine’s Day blog hop
  6. Finish Grandma’s Kitchen QAL 20 blocks – made into three runners
  7. I Wish You A Merry QAL quilt is housed on the couch for the holiday season!
  8. The second ABC quilt is complete and for sale in our Etsy shop
  9. Our Jigsaw Puzzle baby quilt with lots of appliqué pieces will be finished before the end of the year and a pattern is also forthcoming
  10. Finishing the Delectable Dogsleds table runner that we purchased at a quilt shop in Juneau, Alaska a few (2011?) years ago was fun
  11. The Las Vegas Fall Leaves quilt that we bought the fabric for in Las Vegas ages ago is complete.  I don’t even know when that was!
  12. The three hand quilting pieces were originally for a jacket.  My taste in fabric has changed so instead they were made into Receiving Blankets

    I would say 2018 was a VERY successful year! You reached so many goals, or came really close. I’m giving you a gold star!

    Hello Roseanne, I am very proud to have discovered your blog and share some fabulous emails with each other that is developing a friendship. I also want to make sure you know what an inspiration you have been to me. I only hope to achieve a small fraction of what you have accomplished this year for myself in the 2019 year. Thank you for everything that you have shared this year! Have a splendid day!

  8. chrisknits says:

    I will try and play along. It might help me get the other goals I have listed accomplished!

  9. Kathryn says:

    You have achieved so much, how you post so much and answer comments I don’t know. All the best for 2019, I am in the middle of making my goals for 2019 too. I didn’t achieve all of the 2018 ones either but achieving some is great.

  10. Completing 12 UFOs this year and blog posting 5 times a week; those alone are very impressive accomplishments for 2018. Thank you for sharing your goals for 2019; I hope you have a wonderful year ahead!

  11. busy…busy…busy. All awesome!
