It feels funny to put my UFOs last but I also finished 6 UFOs this month. I had fun experimenting with wavy walking foot quilting on the Batik Noodle series and the last 3 are some of my favorite UFO finishes of the year. It was a great month of quilting!

My always challenging monthly goals for November ended up looking like this:
1-UFO#1 Batik Noodle 1-DONE!
2-UFO#2 Batik Noodle 2-DONE!
3-UFO#3 Batik Noodle 3-DONE!
4-UFO#4 Cool Sparkles-DONE!
5-UFO#5 Arkansas Crossing-DONE!
6-UFO#6 Scrappy Chevrons-DONE!
9- Finish And Sew On-DONE!
11-Finish 2 WIPs* (finished 1)
I do like to push myself on my goals - I look at them as "In a Perfect World" goals. I have fun trying to reach them and don't beat myself up when I don't. I definitely get more done when I aim big.
With this in mind... I'm going to keep pushing the UFO Finishes through the first 3 weeks of the December. I have 3 Christmas UFOs on my list and 1 Christmas WIP that are high priority finishes. I know it's the busiest month of the year - but it's my last month in my Year of Finish and I'm not going to change what has been working all year (making an ambitious list!).
1-Finish Christmas Fantasy
2-Finish Christmas Rail Fence
3-Finish Christmas Strings
4-Finish Christmas WIP
5-Finish 4 more UFOs
I'm choosing my 2 UFOs for 1 lap quilt Christmas Fantasy (I'm using a UFO for backing) as my December Finish for A Year of Lovely Finishes. It arrived beautiful quilted by Cindy at Tops To Treasures on Friday and I'm looking forward to getting the binding sewn down during football games this month.
