June in Review and July Goal Setting

June was a great month for me!

I finished 4 UFOs:
1. Come Sail Away, 2. Kitchen Sink Strings, 3. Scrappy Summertime, 4. Autumn String Set for Heartstrings

I also moved 3 projects to the flimsy stage, made yellow blocks for RSC13 and finished one WIP:
1. Schnibbles "Gentle Art", 2. Minnesota Hotdish by Atkinson Designs, 3. Thimbleberries Jacob's Ladder, 4. Birds in the Air in Yellow, 5. Crossroads in Yellow, 6. Schnibbles "Hat Trick"

But BEST of all I finished painting and moved into my new quilting room (post HERE)...
with my Dream Cutting Table in it (post HERE)!
I finished all of my June Goals but one:

1-UFO#1 Scrappy Summertime-DONE!
2-UFO#2 Autumn Strings-DONE!
3-UFO#3 Come Sail Away-DONE!
4-UFO#4 Kitchen Sink Strings-DONE!
5-NewFO Project-DONE!
6-And Sew On Block
7-RSC13 Blocks-DONE!
8-Finish 1 WIP-DONE!
9-Heartstrings Blocks-DONE!

Looking ahead to July I'm aiming for:

1-Finish 4 UFOs
2-Design Wall Up
3-NewFO Project
4-And Sew On Blocks - June & July
5-RSC13 Blocks
6-Finish 1 WIP
7-Pound Some Nails

Not much new here project wise but I do really want to get my Design Wall in place and start to put things on the wall... time to make my new quilting room a full-blown Quilting Studio!

My July project for A Lovely Year of Finishes will be the Thimbleberries Jacob's Ladder quilt shown in my 2nd mosaic. I'm itching to get that one quilted and on the wall in our family room.


  1. You've had a great month. I know you are enjoying your room, I just want to get my cutting table cleared and a few things put away. All I've had time to do is dump things in the studio lately.

  2. 52 finishes in 52 weeks?


  3. Splat too
    Faint... Too!
