First Quarter Finish Goals

I was thinking about my goals for this year and it is pretty easy to find a word to describe what I want to do regarding sewing and other projects and the word is FINISH.  I looked around to find so many things I have begun working on.  I really love most of them and want to finish them.  I want to complete projects and share the finished items with friends and loved ones that will enjoy them and use them.

I do have another word that I want to keep in mind in the next year.  That word is AVAILABLE.  I want to be available to those around me and aware of what I might be able to do to enrich some one's life.   I want to ask myself this question, "Am I available to others when I might be a help or encouragement?"  I don't want my "Finish" goals to be so consuming that I don't see others around me.  With that said, I am going to share pictures of some of my projects that I would love to finish this quarter.

Spools quilt - ready for binding

Christmas pillow, gift to my sister, needs binding.

Sunnyside quilt kit, 6 blocks complete 18 to go.

Mini quilt from Konda's book ready to make a pillow or mini.

I finished this quilt top from  he Simply Retro book,  This quilt is one I am going to try to quilt myself.

My Petals table topper is ready for quilting and binding.

I have 3 quilts I just got back from my quilter and getting the binding on all three of these quilts in also an important part of my goal list.  I will be linking with Clover & Violet for the 2016 Finish Along.
I will work to complete as many of these things as possible but focus on remaining available to those around me.  I hope your new year brings many blessings.
