June goals from Making A Lather

I like the beginning of a month, and a chance to set goals and see them finish.... or just progress. I am not overwhelmed with a month. It is a good time period for me to focus and then, let go if I need to move on to something else.

It's time to finish my double wedding ring. It looks sad here. It has been neglected. I think I have 3 sections to join together and then, the top is done.




I want to quilt a joann block of  the month called countryside cottage. The top and back are ...

sparkle punch finish from Making A Lather

Today the president of our church has asked us to fast and pray for relief from covid-19, for protection for those on the front lines, and for our economy to be strengthened. I know this can make a huge difference for all of us.


I started  making this quilt in 2014 when I saw a  picture in a magazine.


I had the top done within the year, but, it has languished in the quilting pile.



Today it is finished.




This is part of April's one monthly goal and PHD

2020 quilt goals from Making A Lather

I have been thinking and thinking about next year's goals. I have spent at least two years working on ufos and I have finished more than I thought I could. But, I am wishing to do something new. I've noticed I went crazy with new, so we will see. I was trying for a top 10 for the year, and next thing I knew, I had 20. I am going to leave it that way, and see how I do. It is 2020 after all.
