Goal Met!

Well... the goal I blogged about setting here... is now officially complete :)

I am very excited that I have found a way to set goals... now to set attainable goals! lol

You see I started out Saturday morning with a plan to stitch the weekend away... so I set a lofty goal of completing a feather and a swirly block in 2 days..

I am first stabilizing the block by starting with the feather spine first...
ha! ha!
Life happened!  So by Sunday night... my self-imposed deadline...  I was here ...

1/2 done on the block and 3/4 on the feather
And not sad but disappointed just a bit... but Monday chimed in and I was ready to stitch.. some stitching happened but not as much as I had wished for... So this morning I hurried got here before daylight...
Yippee 3/4 done on the block and all done with the feather!
And then snapped this when the sun came up...

Once I finished the block I cleaned the pencil marks off here it is!!!  I also did that cornerstone... it has a yin yang symbol in it... also my honey's request! lol
tah dah!
So now I am down to 7 blocks, 8 feathers and 2 cornerstones to go.

I think for the remainder of these blocks I will pair them with a feather to keep me hopping from one to the other with 2 needles going... one for each spot!  I really did enjoy that part of this challenge for my self.

Now lets see how far I can get before it is time for some of my fave weekend blog spots to link to!

Have a blessed week!

Did you set any goals with me??? If so how did yours turn out??  I would love to hear from you in comments below!


  1. I know how you feel. I had hoped to have my son's wall quilt finished by Sunday evening. I am still working on it. Maybe I'll be finished before midnight tonight. Good luck with your next goals.Hopefully, we can work on other projects soon.

  2. Congrats on meeting your self-obtainable goal. Block and sashing look good. I am slowly working on mine as life keeps happening.

  3. Congratulations! They do say that each journey begins with a single step. =)

  4. Superb, glad your goal was met, I did quite a bit of quilting whilst I was away and can see that I can do this quilt very quickly, looking forward to linking up with other blogs this weekend also


Thanks for taking time to comment. Have a blessed day!
