Speaking of things that are still hanging around, Vintage Dresses is still up on the design wall.

The third row of dresses is ready to be sewn together. That leaves two rows of dresses and three more rows of sashing to finish. The One Monthly Goal for March was to get all the sashing made have all the rows sewn together. That didn't happen. This is only the 4th time in the two years I've been playing along with the OMG that I didn't finish a monthly goal. March was just really busy on both the work and family fronts. Looking at it that way, I'm just going to be happy that there was good progress in spite of the busy month. That's pretty much it for what's going on in the sewing room for the last week. I'm linking up with the usual suspects:

The rest of this post is a review. Back in December, I developed a list of quilting ambitions as part of Quilting Jet Girls 2018 Planning Party. It helps me remember to celebrate my successes and stay focused on my goals for the year if I review my progress on that list at the end of each quarter. So here's the status of those ambitions.
Ambition #1: Shorten the UFO List
Ambition #2: Participate in select quilt along/mysteries
Progress: Squared Away quilt along is started

Ambition #3: Find 15 minutes to stitch each day
Success rate = 91%
Ambition #4: Stash Management
Purchase less than 5 yards per quarter (4 yards in)
Organize the stash - a little progress
Use only stash fabrics for new projects - yes
Ambition #5: Blog once a week
41 blog posts for 13 weeks = 3/week
I'm doing better than I expected on my ambitions for the year. Finding time to stitch, blog and limit the amount of stash additions is going well. The biggest disappointment is that the UFO list isn't going down. There has been progress on several UFOs, they just haven't progressed to the point of being finished. So for second quarter, I need to work a little harder on moving those almost finished UFOs along.
