Meetup | December Goals

Although it’s hard to bring my focus back around to making and getting ready for my open studio next weekend, I must do this! Between a commission for a jester stocking, the hacking of my websites, and all the Thanksgiving stuff, I didn’t get nearly as much done as I wanted to this month!

I did however get to teach a fabulous Advanced Free Motion Quilting class! It was a small class, all of them had taken my first FMQ class, so we were able to get right to stitching. I teach them lots of new patterns, we all work on modifying patterns to create new ones, and I also show them how to Quilt As You Go with no sashing. Although the last night I only had 3 people (it was the Monday after Thanksgiving), the three that did come were ROCK STARS!!!!  Look at all this quilting they got done:






Look at those smiles! They are all most justifiably so proud of their work!!!! 🙂 Mission accomplished!

Now, here is December, with the holidays roaring towards me! This year not only will I have the general pre-Christmas rush, we’ll have my Mom, Step-Dad, and Liam’s girlfriend Celia visiting us for several days around New Year’s Eve, so this holiday will not be a vacation. It will be fun, and busy, but not a vacation, which hubby and I equate with some down time. We haven’t had that in a long time, and it’s starting to show, who am I kidding, we’ve been suffering from lack of downtime since taking Liam to Nashville in August!

The only Christmas present making I’m even going to try to accomplish this year is perhaps a rabbit and squirrel for my niece’s little girl (using a lovely Ann Wood pattern) Teigan. But if I end up having to buy something for her, it won’t be the end of the world! I’m also going to try to enjoy the season!!!!!
