2018 Ambitions: Uneven Progress, The Third Quarter Summary from Life In Pieces

Way back in December of 2017, I participated with Quilting Jetgirl's 2018 Planning Party by putting together a set of quilting ambitions for the year.  Now that third quarter is over it's time to assess how things have gone so far this year.  

Ambition #1: Shorten the UFO List


If you compare the above chart to the one I posted on the mid-year update, I've gone down by one.  So there's been progress, just not a lot of it.  I'm doing a good job of finishing my newer projects, but not so hot at finishing ...

2018 Ambitions - Checking in for Mid-Year from Life In Pieces

Hard to believe we've passed the mid-year point for 2018.  I just finished doing mid-year reviews at work. It's a chance to look at the goals from the first of the year, make sure they are still appropriate and that you are on track to complete them.  Back in April I  reviewed how things were going on my quilty ambitions (that post is here) for the same reasons.  Yvonne over at Quilting Jetgirl is hosting a mid year review linky party to encourage us to take a look at where we are mid year. 


So here's how ...

June One Monthly Goal - Progress but no Shooting Stars from Life In Pieces

It's the last day of June, the end of the first half of 2018.  Really?  I'm not sure where the first half of the year went. Even so, today's the last day to post on the June One Monthly Goal.  


My track record for the OMG hasn't been so good in 2018.  Unfortunately, that trend continues for June, so I will not be linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the end of the month linky party. But it's not all gloom and doom, I did make some good progress this month.  

The monthly projects ...

2018 Ambitions: Successes and Failures from Life In Pieces

You had to wonder if Mother Nature decided to play along with April Fool's Day this year.  We had freezing rain most of the way home yesterday.  It wasn't heavy enough to make the roads bad, but it certainly was nerve racking wondering if conditions would get any worse.  We got home without incident and thankfully the Scientist in Training only hit one minor patch on her way back to school last night.  We are under a winter weather watch this morning for more freezing rain.   The calendar may say spring, but winter hasn't left yet.

2018 Quilting Ambitions from Life In Pieces

As the year winds down, it's just natural to start considering plans for next year.  Yvonne's 2018 Planning Party gives bloggers a great opportunity to share ambitions the upcoming year.  I played along last year.  Here's how this year worked out and what the ambitions are for 2018.  


2018 Planning Party

This past year has been productive on a couple of fronts and less so on others.  The biggest accomplishment was finishing seven quilts this year, that ties my all time best.  Plus there was some progress on each of the twelve quilts on my 2017 quilt plan.  Finding time ...
