Getting it Done! challenge

Judy is switching up her UFO challenge this year, and instead of listing 12 UFOs at the start of the year, we are going to list 4 things we want to get done each month.  Size, scope, and time investment are up to you, just pick 4 quilt-related things you want to get done in the month.  So, I'm going to try to play along.  Sometimes a deadline is just what I need to push me forward.  If you want to play along, check out Judy's challenge here.

So, in January, here are my 4 things:
  1. Catch up on Dancing with the Stars BOM - including the January blocks
  2. Catch up on Gardener's Alphabet stitching.  That's probably too big a challenge, so let's just say I'll finish block D, and do at least 1 more (I have A, B, E, F to do)
  3. Quilt Grant's quilt.  This poor thing has waited through 2 years of UFO challenges, and still isn't done.  No more excuses - I'll load it on my long arm before I put anything else on there, and get it done.
  4. Make 2 quilties for guild this month.  This might interfere with #3, so I'll have to think about how to get them all quilted this month.  Or maybe if I load Grant's quilt tomorrow, I'll be obligated to finish it so that I can load up the quilties.
I think this is all achievable, without stressing myself out - well, all but #2, anyway.  Four is a nice number, because I can just plan to work on one each weekend and still have hope of getting through the list.


  1. Hi, Krista: Sounds like a good list! I think I'm going to like Judy's new challenge. It will be fun to follow along from month to month and see how we do.

  2. Your list has a lot of variety. Judy did great coming up with this idea. I think we are all going to get a lot done and add a few new projects to out lists.

    Have a wonderful New Year

  3. You'll have plenty to do, but 31 days - you should make it!
