Life is good...and busy!

Almost missed the entire of month of May
for blogging. Time flies....
 
Fabric report:
 
No changes. I have been sewing on a
few different projects, but because
none of them are finished, I have not
counted the fabric stash busted!
 
Still at about 30 yards busted.
 
Slow stitching Sunday:

Still working on the
Trip around the World quilt,
all done by hand.
I am nearly done with row 38

 
 
Lastly...yesterday was the
beginning of my 2015
100 days of Summer.
 
It is a project I do each Summer
(June-August with a few days
of May and September to add up
to 100 days) when I set some
different intense goals I have
been wanting to work on for a
limited time.
 
For instance, reading every
day for the 100 days or no
chocolate (yes, I have done it)
for a month.
 
This Summer, some of my goals are:
 
1.To concentrate on my physical
well being with improved diet/exercise
This includes bike riding and new
recipes made at home.
 
(Fresh from our garden)
 
2.Reading the Book of Mormon
(I am a member of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)
 
3.Compete in some fabric challenges.
 
There are some other goals, but you
get the idea. One goal I would like to
do is to blog more often. I just need
to make the commitment and decide
how long ( a week...a month) and
how often (everyday...twice a week)
 
So...here's to the next 99 days of fun!

Love the idea of setting goals it alway helps to encourage ourselves to improve. Love your TATW. I bet it takes a while to add each row as it has gotten quite large. I am not sure when I will stop on mine I keep waiting for it to tell me.

I like the idea of setting goals and wish you luck in meeting them! I set some goals this year too but they have all gone awol with a sick family member to look after. Now, my goal is to do a little bit of sewing each week to keep my sanity. So far, so good! Your TATW is looking great! 38 rows means a lot of little squares!

Good luck with your goals!

How about hand stitching every day for 100 days?!?!
I think I would excel on that one!

That quilt is amazing! I would love to see it in person when it is finished. Your summer goals sound great and very doable. Enjoy!
