October CGQC goals
I realized today that it was October. I also realized that in my downer last week, I hadn't posted my CGQC goals for the month. Since I accomplished practically nothing last month, I am going to be doing many repeats. Unfortunately, my machine is still down. . .so it is with a heavy sigh and little confidence that I say, I doubt I will even get all of my projects done this month.
Goal 1- Remember me?
Finish the quilting on this quilt. Remember, I was halfway thru it when my machine crashed.
Start the quilting on this quilt. I was thinking I might do a grid pattern on this versus stippling for variation. Does anyone have any suggestions on? My mom said that now that I have improved so much she thinks I should stipple it.
Goal 3- (a new goal)
My mini quilt for the swap. I am not going to show much of this project while it is in the works as I think my partner is on to me.
Goal 4-(a revised goal)
Finish both tops of this snowman wall hanging....I will save the quilting for another month since my machine is still away.
Reality...perhaps I will only get one done. I know which one that will be, it has to take priority above the others.
****A special note of thanks to all my friends:
I really appreciate all of the comments of concern and kindness on my blog and in my email inbox. My grandmother is still with us, but declining. She hasn't ate or drank since Wednesday morning, she has been unresponsive since Thursday, and her lungs keep filling with fluid. So for now, we wait. My grandma is in her late 80's and has lived much longer than anyone expected. Almost 15 years ago, she suffered a massive stroke following a quadruple bi-pass. I remember clearly that they called the entire family in during the early morning hours to say goodbye. While it is hard to say goodbye to a grandma that loved her family so, it is equally hard to watch someone in pain (which she has been for sometime now). I appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers during this time.
