September Goals

I thought long and hard about setting ONE goal for the month:


But I will give it a try with 3 short & simple goals instead.
Never too hot to Stitch!
1.  Do this month's orange blocks for RSC14 and catch up on one prior month.
2.  Start 1 new project.
3.  Finish 1 old project.

My Something New project will be one of these pillows from the book PillowPOP - either Flying Rainbows (above) or Crimson Stones (below). These are the projects chosen for a Sew Along on Threadbias for the month of September. Since I love this book and need some new pillows I had better get on the stick and make one!
My Something Old project will be my Memory Garden UFO so that I can hang it in my entry way this fall. It just needs to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm going for small & easy here. This will also be my September project for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
But, most of all, I need to JUST SEW SOMETHING! Pronto. Stat. ASAP.


  1. I know how you feel. After being on the road this week I am working from home this morning. And I took a break long enough to put the cuffs onto 2 more pillowcases and pressed them so that over the weekend I can hopefully finish them up. It just felt good to spend even 15 minutes at my sewing machine.

    Love the flying rainbow pillow - so sharp!!

  2. What a great idea. It is hard only working on UFO's. I could use your goals as well.

  3. I love your goal to sew something. I wish you all the best in meeting this goal. Now I really want to check out that book. I have been wanting to make pillows for awhile.

  4. Oh I like those goals a lot--they seem eminently do-able! good luck hugs, Julierose

  5. Great job on setting goals. I always get more done when I set goals.

  6. Sees that goal setting is a useful tool. Good luck. I have plenty of UFOs too.

  7. Good luck with your goals. Very sensible choices.

  8. THAT's EXACTLY how I felt this morning when I posted my ALYofF goal....just get sewing again. Company gone, school started...time to sew again! YAH!! Will look forward to watching your progress Deb. :)

  9. Great goals Deb and it will get you back in the quilting mood!!

  10. I know the feeling! I've been going crazy not sewing.

  11. Easy does it, try not to make yourself crazy about it. I know you'll be back in your groove soon! Sending hugs.

  12. It seems to me that just getting started is the hardest part, especially when we've had a long break!
