August’s One Monthly Goal

ombreI have been debating about a goal for August. My July goal was quite modest, just to finish the block centers for my current quilt.  I did that, finished all the blocks, and put together the top, so clearly July was more productive than expected.  Also, the project went well, which always boosts productivity! Unfortunately, I have not been reading blogs lately, so I missed the monthly linkup to show what I had achieved.  Hopefully this time I manage.  If not, it may be the end of project goal linkups for me for a bit.

So the question is, will August be equally productive? It seems unlikely. I am preparing for the start of the new term and trying to maintain the exercise schedule I started on this summer, plus I have a few study circles going on weekends.  Though I am tempted to make finishing the quilting my monthly goal, I am going to keep it modest again.  Better to under promise and over-achieve.  My goal is to finish the quilt back and get the quilt sandwiched.  With any luck, I will begin quilting it as well.

  1. That seems like an achievable goal. Then if you do more, BONUS!

  2. Far better to be realistically modest than to be optimistically grandiose. You’ll come out looking much better.

  3. Sounds like a sensible approach to more than just quilting. And now I’ve also learnt that quilts can be sandwiched, which perplexes and intrigues me!

  4. Great goal, and it eases the pressure about quilting decisions! I really love your use of color and look forward to more pictures, but I will be patient! Thank you for linking up, I am so sorry you missed the finishes last month!
