Daily/Weekly Goals Challenging + Quilts

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Since I made new daily & weekly goals last Friday it has been challenging to meet the daily goals. As I said it was going to be a challenge. I realize that I can't always meet every goal every day (perfection), but to strive for doing my best and continue on.

Sat was my son-in-law's college graduation. Between going out to eat for lunch and his graduation party in the evening the meal plan went out the window.
Sunday I worked cleaning out the flower gardens. Monday our refrigerator froze up and overheated. After keeping it turned off most of the day it started working again.

Here are the quilts I made for the African girls' home....
I used double knit fabrics I inherited from my mom's fabric stash as the focus fabric

the brown print & dark brown fabrics were my mom's

the green/grey/black print double knit & the black/white print in the center was my mom's

the big square orange/tan/peach print knit was my mom's

    Thanks for sharing photos of the quilts...especially struck by the green and black one. Making a plan is great...doing the best we can is what we hope for...eliminating stress is key.

    I'll bet you thought about your mom all the while you were piecing those quilts. They will be sent with love!

    Love the quilts! I know the African girls home will cherish them! Goals are good, but don't stress yourself out over trying to be perfect with them either! :)

    Carrie, You sure know how to make Lovely quilts (as always!) and a goal list that makes me tired! and to think, you're caring for 6-8 little ones every day, too! Oh my!
Focus on one healthy choice at a time, my friend! You will succeed! Enjoy the lovely weather we're having!
