October - Progress on Monthly Goals

This is my last work day for the week.  We'll spend tomorrow morning at the oral surgeon since Drama Teen is getting her wisdom teeth out.  I'm hoping to get some stitching in as we've been told she'll mainly sleep tomorrow. I'm sure the rest of the weekend will be spent trying to keep her comfortable.  It's a miserable way to spend Fall Break, but she's looking forward to having it all done. She's being pragmatic about it. Get them out now and she won't have to worry about it later when she's trying to deal with college prep tests.  Plus if she does it now, she'll have Mom to fuss over her.  

Yesterday was the 15th (already!).  I've been setting monthly goals as part of Lynn's ( at Never to Hot to Stitch) Year of the Finished Project challenge.  Reviewing my progress at mid-month helps me stay on track.  So here's what's done and what's not.  

Mon Ami
     Ready to take to the post office for shipping

Back to Square One
     Clue 7 Done
     Still need to finish Clues 8, 9 and 10

Neutral Gems
    Three of six blocks completed

Christmas Angels
     Completed 29 Triangle in a Square block, so this one is done. 

Road to Brenham
     Finished 14 of 18 black/white HSTs
     Finished  2 of 18 white/white HSTs
     Finished 2 of 36 quarter square triangles

Scrappy Stars
     Finished 1 of 5 blocks

Scrappy Trip Around the World
     No progress on making at least 5 blocks.  

Not bad for mid month.  My main goal is to get caught up on Back to Square One.  Not sure I'll get all the way to completing clue 10, but I get closer each month to getting caught up.  I need to get busy on both Scrappy Stars and the Scrappy Trip blocks, so those may make their way to the top of my "to do" list this weekend.

Cool WIPs! I'm sending healing sparkles to your Drama Teen. I slept for about 3 days when I had mine out senior year of high school, but didn't need any of the painkillers they gave.

I like to read progress posts! Drama teen is being very practical--I remember when DD had oral surgery 5 hours away from me while in college and I couldn't be there. ARRRGGGHH!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Drama Teen. I am sure she will be fine in no time. Your piecing is spot on! I can't wait to see all of these beautiful units made into gorgeous quilts!

Hopefully the wisdom teeth extraction will go well .. love the September to October pictures. Great way to show progress.

Hope the dental production went well. My daughter did that about 2 years ago and it was drama and more drama. But as you said, a wonderful time for doting on your baby which I enjoyed :)
