Stitching Plans for December 2018 - The One Monthly Goal

The first week of December is almost done.  This time of year the days seem to pass at warp speed with lots of extra things on the to do list for many of us.  One item on my to do list is to decide what is December's One Monthly Goal. 


I've not done very well this year in meeting my OMG, a measly 36% success rate, versus a combined 88% success rate for my 2016 and 2017 OMG efforts.  What's even more head scratching, is that I'm sewing more.  So where's the disconnect?  Something to contemplate as I try to decide on my quilty ambitions for 2019.  

All that aside, I need to figure out what's the goal for this month.  Turns out that's a pretty easy decision.  It would be nice to get one more finish this year and the only project that's going to happen with is the Halloween Mystery quilt.

The label is made. 


But the binding hasn't been cut and assembled yet.  I've also purchased some buttons to add eyes to the bats, in hopes that makes them a bit more identifiable.  The Halloween Mystery quilt is supposed to be a Christmas gift, so that's added incentive to get it finished.  Hopefully, getting this project to finished quilt is a goal that I can manage.

I love it! And your label? Adorable! I am sure you've explained how you make them, so off to see if I can find a post about it.

Its a great goal! and your previous goals have been big ones - maybe that makes a difference in your percentage rates?

Marti said...

That's a good goal for a busy month. I agree with Alycia that the difference in your percentage this year compared to the last two could be the size of the quilts made each year.

Sounds like a good goal, Hope you’ve had a chance to work on it a little bit.
