2018 Finish-Along Goals for Q1

Out of the 12 goals that I set for myself for 2017 Q4, I only managed to finish 3 of them.  Upon reviewing them I decided to port over a few of the goals to Q1 of 2018, drop a few and modify a few.  You will notice that my goals involved quite a bit of knitting and they are mainly Susan B Anderson’s pattern.  So here is my list.

Goal #1

To finish piecing and quilting the Spinning Quilt.  This pattern is by Cooking Up Quilts.  I am a slow stitcher and this pattern has a number of small pieces.

Goal #2

I started on another quilt which has a rather tight deadline.  It is to be gifted to a young couple.  Feeling rather stressed now.

Goal #3

To make a Tea Cozy.  This Tea Cozy is the request of my husband’s niece who is in UK.  I am really grateful to her for being such fantastic host to my daughter when she visited her in UK.  I am using scrap materials for this tea cozy.

Goal #4

I had wanted to knit another Opal sock bunny but did not manage to.  So for this quarter I have decided to make the smaller version of the Opal sock bunny.  Susan B Andersen, the designer of this Opal sock bunny, has a pattern for the smaller version and this is so good for using up leftover yarns from the various projects.

Goal #5

To knit A Bear and A Bunny Suit, pattern by Susan B Anderson.  I have pink and dark brown yarn, very similar to the one that Susan knitted.

Goal #6

To knit Baa, another pattern by Susan B Anderson.  I love the colour combination that Susan used so I bought similar coloured yarn, hoping to knit one like hers.

Goal #7

To knit Hedgie, another pattern by Susan B Anderson.  I am going to use the same brown yarn that I have for A Bear and A Bunny Suit.  I love knitting amigurumis as they are fast to complete.

Goal #8

To knit Squirrel and Acorn.  The grey used for the squirrel’s coat will also be used for Baa’s face.  Once again another pattern by Susan B Anderson.

Goal #9

To finish the applique, My Funny Valentine, and then quilt it.

Goal #10

Sunbonnet Sue purse.  Another WIP waiting to be completed into a small coin purse.

I realised I am very good at starting new projects but not very good at completing them.  This is definitely not good.  I must do something about this habit.

  1. Good Morning!
    You are not alone at being good at starting new projects. I seem to have a little bit of the buying too many things to start issue going on at this moment myself. ~smile~ Roseanne
