Weekend Stitching: Completion of One Monthly Goal for March

We had a pretty relaxed Easter weekend.  Drama Teen has one more day off of school, but My Guy and I have to go back to work this morning.  At least my big project at work is winding down, just the report writing is left.  So I'll be spending lots of time at the computer this week.  

Since we ended up staying home for Easter weekend, I was able to get in some significant time in the sewing room.  Enough time that I was able to finish stitching down the binding onto the McCall's Mystery quilt. 

I didn't finish until about 9 PM last night, so there wasn't time to get good pictures.  That probably won't happen till next weekend when I have time to do some staging.  But I was able to get  decent shot of all 4 bound corners.  This is my first finish for 2016 and the third time I've met my one monthly goal. 

Picking one goal a month has been really helpful to me.  It helps me focus on getting at least one project moved ahead.  I tend to work on multiple projects at a time, so the focus on one helps me set priorities in the sewing room when I only have a limited amount of time to stitch.  So far in 2016 that's resulted in finished top and a completed quilt.  I will definitely be picking a goal for April.

Congratulations on finishing your OMG. I just discovered I left my border fabric at son's house so I may be late yet again.

Yea for a finished quilt. Yea! for reaching your OMG. I am knee deep trying to finish mine with not a lot of free time this week. Today's the day if everything goes right. (And I don't spend the whole morning reading blogs.)
